About 803 of Kawasaki’s latest revised Ninja – the 2016 ZX-10R – has been recalled due to possible bolt breakage.

Kawasaki says that certain model 2016 Ninja ZX-10R and ZX-10R ABS motorcycles may have been manufactured with over-tightened steering damper bracket mounting bolts, which are at the risk of breaking.

Kawasaki says the affected motorcycles – models ZX1000RGFAL, ZX1000RGFL, ZX1000SGFAL and ZX1000SGFL – were manufactured Oct. 28, 2015, to Jan. 18, 2016.

Kawasaki says if the steering damper bracket mounting bolts break, the steering damper bracket would detach and could interfere with steering the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Kawasaki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering damper bracket mounting bolts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 29, 2016. Owners may contact KMC customer service at 1-866-802-9381. Kawasaki’s number for this recall is MC16-03.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit SaferCar.
