With all the guys racing their Gen 5s over here I'm really surprised no one blew up a transmission, only ones I've heard of failing were in Thailand.

For those who listened to my first post in this thread, please check again with Kawasaki directly - my bike is getting recalled after all.

Looks like my dealership hadn't received the VIN yet, 2 weeks ago, when I called them.

Here's what pops up for me:

2016 ZX1000SGFAL recalls
2016 - 2018 NINJA ZX10R & 10RR TRANSMISSION GEARS REPLACEMENT WARNING AND RECALL NOTICE - Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2016 - 2018 Ninja ZX-10R & 10RR motorcycles.

Note: VIN/HIN required to search for outstanding recalls.

Recall Date:02/01/2018

Remedy: Your Kawasaki dealer will correct this problem for you at no charge. The correction will consist of replacing the affected transmission gears.

Risk: On affected units, the strength of the gears in the transmission may not be sufficient. This could cause the gear(s) to break due to excessive impact force depending on the shifting manner. The breakage of transmission gear(s) may cause the loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.

NHTSA Recall #: 18V089

Kawasaki Recall #: MC18-01

Consumer Contact:For more information, contact your authorized Kawasaki dealer or call Kawasaki toll-free at 866-802-9381 between 8:00am and 5:00pm PT, Monday through Friday.
