Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—July 23, 2011.
Summary: Kawasaki is recalling certain model year 2011 Ninja ZX-10R/ZX-10R ABS (ZX1000JBF/JBFL/KBF/KBFL) motorcycles. It is possible for a portion of the wiring harness to become pinched between the rear subframe and the rear fender or between the rear subframe and the bolt holding the seat cover. This can damage the harness and wiring and result in a short between wires and the frame or within wires, which could result in the engine stopping suddenly.
Consequence: If the motorcycle stalls while being ridden, there could be a crash resulting in injury or death.
Remedy: Dealers will repair the motorcycle as necessary and reroute the main harness; free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners may contact Kawasaki Consumer Services Department at 866-802-9381.
Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
