What's the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:
- 2021 Kawasaki Z400 ABS (ER400D)
- 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 400 (EX400H)
- 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 400 ABS (EX400G)
The strength of the camshaft chain tensioner on the above motorcycles may be insufficient due to improper heat treatment, potentially causing it to be damaged, NHTSA said. A damaged camshaft chain tensioner can cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
Kawasaki is notifying owners and dealers will replace the camshaft chain tensioner, free of charge.
"Note: Owners are advised to not ride their motorcycles until the repair has been completed," NHTSA said.
This recall began on December 21, 2020.
