06V130000 Steering: Wheel and Handle Bar Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. 04/19/2006 6746
Defect Summary
On certain motorcycles, the bolt that attaches the steering damper body to the frame bracket may not have been tightened sufficiently during vehicle assembly.
Consequence Summary
If the bolt loosens and backs out completely, the steering damper could inhibit free movement of the steering assembly causing a loss of steering control. This could increase the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will tighten the steering damper bolt to the proper torque and inspect the damper movement. The recall is expected to begin on May 1, 2006. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-866-802-9381.
