Kawasaki Motors Recalls Motorcycles Due to Potential Safety Risk

Kawasaki Motors recalled 1,770 model year 2021 Z400 ABS (ER400D), Ninja 400 (EX400H) and Ninja 400 ABS (EX400G) motorcycles due to potential safety risk.

The strength of the camshaft chain tensioner may be insufficient due to improper heat treatment, possibly causing it to be damaged.

A damaged camshaft chain tensioner can potentially cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of injury or even death during a crash.

Owners have advised against riding their motorcycles until the repair is done.

Kawasaki is notifying owners, while dealers will replace the camshaft chain tensioner, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin December 21, 2021.

There have been no reported incidents to date.
