NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
12V363000 Service Brakes, Hydraulic: Foundation Components: Master Cylinder Qingqi Group Motorcycle Co., LTD 07/18/2012 691
Defect Summary
Qingqi Group Motorcycle Co. LTD, through its designated agent Zap, is recalling all model year 2008 Zap Xebra motorcycles manufactured from January 1, 2008, through December 31, 2008. These motorcycles do not conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 122, “Motorcycle Brake Systems.” The motorcycles were produced without a separate brake fluid reservoir for each brake circuit, with each reservoir filler opening having its own cover, seal, and cover retention device.
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 the braking system, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary
Zap will notify owners and Zap will install or send each owner a remedy kit to bring the vehicles into compliance. Zap has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Zap customer service at 1-800-251-4555.
