All ZX-12R Kawasakis Recalled For Potential Fuel Leak And Fire

Kawasaki has recalled all 18,931 ZX-12R models sold worldwide to check for a cracked fuel tank overflow pipe, which could cause a fuel leak and a resultant fire hazard.

Kawasaki dealers will inspect the pipe and either replace the fuel tank or install a vibration damper, whichever is applicable, free of charge. At the same time, dealers will replace the defective fuel level sender unit on ZX-12R models with VIN numbers that end in A000001 through A011374.

More information is available from Kawasaki dealers.
