Kawasaki Recalls 20,000 Ninjas

Kawasaki is recalling certain Ninja ZX-10R and Ninja ZX-6R models due to a possibly faulty regulator/rectifier. The potential number of units affected is about 20,544.

The recall involves certain 2008-to-2011 ZX-10R models and 2009-to-2012 ZX-6R models manufactured from December 14, 2007, through July 26, 2011.

Due to a manufacturing error, the regulator/rectifier may insufficiently charge the battery. If the battery discharges, the motorcycle may stall without warning.

Kawasaki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the voltage regulator for free. The recall is expected to begin on or about February 27. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 949/770-0400.

About Jon Langston


  1. This Kawisaki zx10r almost killed me in 2011 because of this recall was just now put out. I almost had my right leg torn off my pelvic bone broke in half and my right leg top and bottom broke in several places and then my left foot turned underneath my heel.

    My point is don’t think your tough and not get this bike fixed! This machine almost took my life because of this problem of the bike stalling when ridding it = near death or death. Be aware they knew this bike was doing this but no one did anything until now. Several people in Europe have died because of this bikes screwed up electrical problems.

    Always get get insurance for being disabled. I did not have it and now I cannot work.
