Kawasaki Recalls Z125 Pro For Possible Shock Problem

Kawasaki‘s Z125 PRO has been recalled because of  a potential problem with the rear shock absorber.

The little 125 mini was only released in April, and the recall is an unfortunate blow.

The recall notice states that “the sealing performance of the oil seal in the rear shock absorber may be insufficient due to using improper grease during the shock absorber manufacturing process.”

As a result the rear shock absorber may fail due to oil leaking which could potentially cause an accident.

Affected bikes were sold between the 21st April 2016 and 24th June 2016 and have VIN numbers in the range JKABRRJ1 HDA00041 to JKABRRJ1 HDA01873.

Owners with affected units will be contacted by mail, and should contact their local Authorised Kawasaki Motorcycle Dealership to book their motorcycle in for repair.

Despite being much smaller than a regular bike it is quite comfortable for most adults, and its edgy styling has appealed to buyers looking for a small fun machine that still has street appeal.

Together with Honda’s Grom it has boosted interest in a whole new market segment in Australia.
