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.

My dealer called to let me know Kawi's got the gears on back order with no ETA on them... my friend just got a note in the mail for her Mustang (1 year later) saying parts for a recall finally arrived. I don't want to get stuck in the same boat like that.

Anyone else get told parts were on back order and end up never getting them?

My dealer told me the kit was on backorder as well when he placed the order. Less than a week later, the parts were at the dealership waiting for my bike. There will be a supply issue with these, but it's Kawasaki, not Ford. It's not a Chinese airbag issue that's going on here. Don't stress over it. You may not be getting parts in a week, but you're not going to be waiting months either.

PS - This recall is a bullshit overreaction to a handful of problems. I don't for one second thing this is a widespread issue. The only reason I got mine done is so they'll stop sending me notices. I would gladly ride the bike on my old parts and not give it a second thought and I hate the thought of someone else working on it.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Exactly, probly more of a "stop the presses NOW" sort of thing, Kawi knowing they arent prepared with enough parts/whatever for the initial onslaught of peeps bringing bikes in but they wanted to be as proactive as possible, knowing that with the initial surge in the first month or so, some may have to wait a week or two longer than others but yea, probly most def not a long term thing.
Bet after this initial "surge" of recalled bikes, id guess if you chose to do this a couple months down the road when more bikes have been serviced, it might be more likely to get a quicker turnaround. Just my pennies of course.

I just picked up a NOS '16. When I asked the dealer about the gear recall, they said "Oh, we'll check that." Dealer called back to say they couldn't complete the deal until the recall was taken care of. Parts came in less than one week later. Dealers can't sell any new ZX10Rs until the recall is taken care of. I suspect this is why they are back-ordered for those not buying a new bike.
Great forum BTW-
