Additional information:

Among the 56 recalls the NHTSA has announced this December, comes news of the following:

Logo - KawasakiKawasaki Motor Corp., USA (“KMC”) has recalled an estimated 1,173 model year 2018 Kawasaki Z900, Z900 ABS and Z900RS Motorcycles. The rear brake hose and rear wheel rotation sensor wire in the recalled Motorcycles may have been incorrectly routed, allowing them to contact the rear tire.

According to the NHTSA, if the brake hose contacts the rear tire, the hose may become damaged, reducing the Motorcycle’s braking performance. If the wheel rotation wire gets damaged, the Motorcycle’s anti-lock brake system {“ABS”) may not function properly. Either condition can increase the risk of a crash and injury to the operator and/or any passengers.

KMC will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect the brake line and rear wheel sensor wire routing, correcting the routing and replacing any damaged component, free of charge. The recall began December 17, 2018. Owners may contact KMC customer service at 1-866-802-9381. KMC’s designation for this recall is MC18-06.
