2008 Kawasaki ZG1400 Concours Recall
« on: December 08, 2008, 10:46:00 pm »
Not sure if this has been covered yet.. I ran across this tonight on the kneeslider.    December 6th, 2008 at 10:38 am by Paul Crowe - "The Kneeslider"    Kawasaki Concours recall    Kawasaki has issued a recall for many 2008 Kawasaki Concours motorcycles for a problem with the rear brake  pedal. Please read the details below.    Kawasaki has no specific remedy for this recall yet, so if you ride a Concours, keep an eye out for any debris buildup around the brake pedal which could interfere with normal operation.    Manufacturer: Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA  Model Year:  2008 Kawasaki / ZG1400A8F  2008 Kawasaki / ZG1400A8FL  2008 Kawasaki / ZG1400B8F  2008 Kawasaki / ZG1400B8FL  Models affected: Kawasaki Concours  NHTSA Campaign Number: 08V623000  Potential Units Affected: 4628  Problem: Kawasaki is recalling 4,628 model year 2008 ZG1400A8F/A8FL, and ZG1400B8F/B8FL motorcycles. Trapped road debris may interfere with free movement of the rear brake pedal, preventing full release of the rear brake which can lead to overheating damage and possible brake failure. Brake failure could result in a crash.    Corrective Action: Kawasaki has not yet provided a remedy plan for this recall. The recall is expected to begin on or about December 8, 2008. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-949-770-0400.
