Kawasaki Recalls 13,289 Motorcycles
Kawasaki is recalling more than 13,000 Concours 14 motorcycles due to brake problems. According to the recall notice, the issue could cause the brakes to lock up or fail.
Details of the Kawasaki Motorcycle Recall
According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, the Kawasaki Concours 14 motorcycles have a gap between the brake pedal and guard. This gap may allow debris or small stones to become trapped, creating a break drag which could eventually lead to overheating. When brakes overheat, they can become damaged, lock up/fail, and increase the risk of a motorcycle accident.
