2010 Kawasaki Z1000 recall

Post by ganahsokmo on Thu Jul 08, 2010 12:50 pm

Kawasaki is issuing a recall on the 2010
Z1000 due to a problem with its brake hydraulics.


According to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, the left front brake hose on the 2010 Kawasaki
Z1000 may come into contact with the brake rotor under hard braking.
Such contact may damage the hose, potentially causing a brake fluid
leak.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries first discovered the issue June 15 after
its European distributor received two reports of damaged brake hoses,
though no accidents were reported.
The
Kawasaki Z1000's left front brake hose may contact the rotor under heavy
braking conditions.

The recall affects 1,161 units. Kawasaki dealers will inspect front
brake hoses and replace it if required. Dealers will also reposition the
front brake hose to prevent contact with the brake rotor.
