Zap Recall 09V385000

NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
09V385000 Service Brakes, Hydraulic: Foundation Components: Master Cylinder Qingqi Group Motorcycle Co., LTD 09/30/2009 738
Defect Summary
Qingqi is recalling 738 model year 2008 Zap Xebra motorcycles manufactured between January and December 2008. These motorcycles do not conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 122, “Motorcycle Brake Systems.” They do not have a separate brake fluid reservoir for the front and rear brakes.
Consequence Summary
Without a separate reservoir for each brake, having its own cover, seal, and cover retention device, fluid for one brake circuit may move to the other. If this happens, both reservoirs could lose fluid as a result of a fluid leak in one brake circuit and compromise the stopping ability of both brakes.
Corrective Summary
The manufacturer has not yet provided a remedy plan and notification schedule. Owners may contact Zap toll-free at 1-800-251-4555.
