Kawasaki recall Z900RS over rear brake issue

Kawasaki Z900RS worth every cent rear brake

The official notice issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says that due to improper routing, the rear brake hose and rear wheel rotation sensor lead may touch the rear tyre.

“Continued use could result in damage to the rear brake hose and/or the wheel rotation sensor,” the notice says.

“If the brake hose becomes damaged, it could create the potential for loss of braking performance due to brake fluid leakage.Kawasaki Z900RS worth every cent rear brake

“If the wheel sensor becomes damaged, this could cause the potential for the ABS indicator light to illuminate and the speed will cease to be displayed on the meter, in this case the ABS functionality will be deactivated.

“In both of these instances, this may cause an accident risk and injury to riders and other road users.”

Owners of affected motorcycles should contact their nearest Kawasaki dealer to arrange an inspection and repair of the vehicle.
