2016 Kawasaki ZX-10R - oqd1oapc.fos

Kawasaki has issued recall notice MC16-03 for all 2016 ZX-10Rs for a steering damper fix. According to a report issued by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the steering damper bracket bolts may have been over-tightened and might cause the bracket to break.

The recall only affects model year 2016 ZX-10R ABS and non-ABS models. According to reports, 804 bikes are affected in the US, while the number worldwide is unknown. The model types affected are; ZX1000RGFAL, ZX1000RGFL, ZX1000SGFAL and ZX1000SGFL, manufactured between October 2015 and January 2016.

Owners of the affected ZX-10R models will be notified by Kawasaki and have the steering damper bracket bolts replaced, free-of-charge. The 2016 Kawasaki ZX-10R is yet to be officially released in Malaysia, although the launch is rumoured to be taking place before mid-2016.
