The recall notice advises that the holes in the rear shock absorber tie-rod frame mounts could become elongated if the rear shock absorber bottoms out.

What are the hazards?

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

What should owners do?

The ACCC advises affected Kawasaki owners 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.
