Kawasaki is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 ZX-10R (ZX1000JBF/JBFL/KBF/KBFL/JCF/JCFL/KCF/KCFL) ‘NINJA’ motorcycles. Engine oil may leak from the crankcase at the starter mounting point and pool on top of the crankcase. Continued use in this condition can allow oil to spill over onto the rear tire.
If oil spills onto the rear tire, there is an increased risk of a crash, leading to personal injury or death.
Kawasaki will notify owners, and dealers will remove the starter and seal the crankcase, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin shortly. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-866-802-9381.
