For those who think they might be a part of this recall, make sure to check with with your dealer or online with your VIN (hence the "certain" in the title).
My 2016 ABS model, per example, isn't part of it.

How do you approach your dealer to have them complete the service?
Do you just have to present proof of ownership and you're eligible?
(never had to deal with recalls before)

Just take the bike to the dealer, let them run the VIN and if it needs recall worked performed, schedule an appointment. I don't think they are going to ask for a registration lmao.

Mine finally showed up on the recall list yesterday. I'm thinking all GEN5s will be on it. Check yours:

https://www.kawasaki.com/OwnerSupport/RecallSearch

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.

lol I bet Kawasaki is glad they designed this bike with a cassette transmission. Should be a simple repair.

I could do it in about 90 minutes with all the practice I had replacing gears on my GEN4. :)

The transmission one is definitely a recall. The cam chain tensioner is definitely NOT a recall, BUT if you want it changed Kawasaki will change it for you if you take it in to a dealer and say you don't like the noise. Personally my 2014 and 2016 ZX10s both with over 25,000 miles have been WAY quieter than my ZX6Rs so I'm not touching them. I put manual tensioners in the 6s. But I WILL be taking the '16 in to have the gears in the transmission replaced. I'm feeling lazy, and I have the bike up for sale anyway.
