Kawasaki’s pocket-sized motorcycle, the Kawasaki Z125 Pro, is getting a recall for a faulty shock absorber, which according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), may leak oil and lose functionality.
Since the loss of oil from the shock absorber can change the handling characteristics of the motorcycle, which in turn could lead to a crash, Kawasaki is recalling 1,282 units of the Kawasaki Z125 Pro.
Kawasaki will notify affected owners, and Kawasaki dealers will replace the shock absorbers, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin on July 26th, 2016.
Concerned owners may contact Kawasaki customer service at 1-866-802-9381, and reference recall number MC16-04. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
