Kawasaki Issues Recall For Defective Shock On The Z125 PRO
Kawasaki has been forced to issue recall No. MC16-04 on the Z125 PRO to deal with a small number of units that may have a slow leak in a seal on the rear shock. Left unrepaired, the shock can bleed down and cease to function, leaving you with an unsafe riding condition. Information from the NHTSA indicates that only models built between February 4th and June 7th, 2016 are affected, for a relatively-low number of 1,282 bikes.

Are You Affected?
Owners of said vehicles can expect correspondence from the factory, and dealers are standing by to replace the faulty shock with a known-good one. You can wait for the mail, or phone Kawi directly at (866) 802-9381.
If you are unsure if you are affected, perform a little inspection of your own. Check out the plunger shaft in the rear shock right where it exits the shock body, and if you see any weepage or trapped dust that indicates some seepage, you need to contact your dealer or the factory, pronto.
