Kawasaki Recalls Bikes Over ‘Weak Horn’

Last updated:

Kawasaki Motors Australia as recalled 80 current-model Ninja ZX636 motorcycles because the horn is not durable enough.

That’s right … Kawasaki has weak horns!

The official recall notice, issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission says the wiring harness for the horn “may not be durable enough”.

They claim it could break “due to vibration at a certain engine speed range, preventing the horn from operating”.

“If the horn does not operate correctly, this could increase the risk of an accident or injury to the rider and other road users,” the notice says.

Kawasaki Motors will notify all affected owners by direct letter or email and advise them to make an appointment for repair.

For further information, consumers are urged to contact their nearest authorised Kawasaki dealer by using this link or contacting Kawasaki Motors.

The wiring will be fixed free of charge.
