Kawasaki recalls Z900 over rear shock

2017 Kawasaki Z900

Kawasaki Motors Australia has joined a worldwide recall on the 2017 Z900 over an issue with the rear shock absorber.

Bikes affected were sold nationally between January 1 and November 27, 2017.

Check the VIN list at the end of this article to see if your Z900 is affected.

The voluntary recall notice is issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

It says holes in the rear shock absorber tie-rod frame mounts “could become elongated if the rear shock absorber bottoms out”.

“This may prevent the rear shock absorber from operating correctly and could result in a loss of control of the motorcycle,” the notice says.

Owners are advised to contact an authorised Kawasaki Service Centre to arrange for inspection and repair of the motorcycle.

In the case that elongation of the tie-rod frame mount is found, a replacement frame will be installed free of charge.

YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS ON RECALLS

Recall notices are issued by the manufacturer through a voluntary industry code under the ACCC.

Despite hundreds of recalls by various automotive manufacturers, none has ever been mandatory.  All have been issued by the manufacturer.

While any recall is not good news for the manufacturer, it shows that they are largely diligent in fixing problems.

If you believe there is an endemic problem with your bike that should be recalled, contact the ACCC on 1300 302 502.
