Motorcycle Recall - Kawasaki

NHTSA Campaign ID:  06V005000
Component:  Steering
Manufacturer:  Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A.
Recall Date: 01/03/2006
Potential Number of Units Affected: 103
Defect Summary:
On certain motorcycles, the pinch bolt hole on the left side of the lower front fork triple clamp was not threaded to the full design depth. This allowed the pinch bolt to be tightened to its designed torque value, but did not provide sufficient clamping force on the left fork tube.
Consequence Summary:
This condition could cause steering problems and create the potential for a crash resulting in injury or death.
Corrective Summary:
Dealers will tap additional threads into the lower fork holder clamping bolt hole free of charge. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 866-802-9381.
