Motorcycle Recall - Zero Recall

By Walter Kern

NHTSA Campaign ID:  14V119000
Manufacturer:  Zero Motorcycles Inc.
Recall Date: 03/12/2014
Potential Number of Units Affected: 94
Defect Summary:
Zero Motorcycles, Inc. (Zero) is recalling certain model year 2014 Zero SR motorcycles manufactured December 30, 2013, through February 20, 2014, 2014 Zero S motorcycles manufactured December 26, 2013, through February 18, 2014, Zero DS motorcycles manufactured January 24, 2013, through February 4, 2014, and 2014 Zero FX motorcycles manufactured January 14, 2014, through January 27, 2014. Due to a possible manufacturing defect, the motor rotor may contact the stator while riding.
Consequence Summary:
If the rotor contacts the stator, the motor could seize, locking up the rear wheel which could increase the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Zero will notify owners, and dealers will test the motor and if it fails testing, replace it, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2014. Owners may contact Zero at 1-888-786-9316 (1-888-RUN-ZERO).
