    That’s an odd image to choose; combined with the headline, I assumed the seat and bodywork were defective.

    Your info’s bad, it doesn’t effect the 2011 ZX-10R.

  3. You better inform the NHTSA about that then.

    I’ve seen the bulletin issued by Kawasaki. It’s possible Kawasaki changes the range, but currently the official bulletin only lists 2008-2010 ZX-10R’s. The 2011-12 does use the same part number but may be from a run that doesn’t have the issue. The NHTSA simply regurgitates information, they are not the primary source.

    Good for them and for not trying to shove it in that part of the costumers where the Sun usually don’t shine and make them pay for a defective part.

    Looks like the NHTSA fixed their mistake. :)
