Kawasaki Motors Corporation Recalls ZRX1200-A

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting 2001  Kawasaki ZRX1200-A.

Number Involved: 3,100

Defect: On certain motorcycles, a section of the wiring harness located above the headlight is routed incorrectly. As a result, turning the handlebar can cause abrasion of the wire harness sheath and wiring insulation, leading to malfunction of the turn signals, instrument lights, or indicator lights. Malfunction of any of these items could create the risk of a crash resulting in injury or death.

Remedy: Dealers will re-route the wiring harness and examine the harness and clamp for any signs of damage. Damaged clamps or wires will be repaired or replaced, as appropriate. The manufacturer reported that owner notification was expected to begin during October 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Kawasaki at 1-949-770-0400.
