Product description
The recall affects motorcycles with serial numbers: 1. ZR1000DAF/DAS - JKAZRT00DDA000096 to JKAZRT00DDA010442;2. ZR1000EAF - JKAZRT00DEA002687 to JKAZRT00DEA010446.
Risk
The product poses a risk of injuries the position of the brake hose allows it to move up and down through a guide attached to the front fender as the front suspension moves. On some of the affected units, as the left front brake hose moves up and down through the guide under hard braking, a section of the hose can come into contact with the still-rotating brake disc. This might result in leakage of the brake fluid, diminishing the effectiveness of the front brake system and leading to a risk of an accident.
