Recall: 2015 Zero Motorcycles

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Zero Motorcycles is recalling a number of models from its 2015 lineup, all for issues with DC-DC converter, which takes direct current electricity from one voltage and converts it to a different voltage.

According to the recall documents, when under high-power demands the DC-DC converter can suffer from insufficient output, which in-turn can cause the anti-lock brake system (ABS) not to function properly.

Since the failure of the ABS can lead to an increase in the risk of a crash, Zero Motorcycles has issued this recall, and while this recall affects the SR, S, DS, and FX motorcycle lines, only 96 motorcycles are actually being recalled under this notice.

According to the recall notice, Zero has already notified the affected owners, and this recall formerly started September 16, 2016. To remedy the situation, Zero Motorcycle dealers will inspect the DC-DC converter, and replace it if necessary.

Concerned Zero Motorcycle owners can contact Zero customer service at 1-888-841-8085, and reference Zero’s recall number, SV-ZMC-016-356. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and
