Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the Kawasaki Motors Corporation 2001 ZX1200-A1 and A2.

Potential Number of Units Affected: 6,305 

Defect: On certain motorcycles, the nuts securing the tire valve stems to the wheels can fail, resulting in a loss of tire air pressure. If this occurs, air pressure will be lost from the wheel/tire, possibly resulting in the loss of control.
