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
[NHTSA Recall No. 01V294]
