Zero Motorcycles is recalling a bevy of its motorcycle models because of a turn signal that may stop working, without alerting the rider, which happens to violate Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) #108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”
Thankfully, the recall only affects a grand total of 10 motorcycles: the 2017 Zero S ZF6.5, Zero S ZF13.0, Zero DSP ZF13.0, and Zero SR ZF13.0 lineup.
When a turn signal stops working on a motorcycle, federal law requires that it alert the operator of the motorcycle by changing the speed of the flash rate display
As such, Zero will notify affected owners, and Zero dealers will test the motorcycle’s flasher and replace it if necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin today, July 28, 2017.
Concerned owners may contact Zero customer service at 1-888-841-8085. Zero’s number for the recall is SV-ZMC-017-369. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
