     KAWASAKI / CONCOURS 14 	    	2008-2012
Manufacturer: KAWASAKI MOTORS CORP., U.S.A. 	Mfr's Report Date: JUL 18, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V343000 	NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Potential Number of Units Affected: 13,289
Summary:
Kawasaki is recalling certain model year 2008-2012 Concours 14 (ZG1400 A/B/C/D) motorcycles. Due to a gap between the brake pedal and guard, small stone or debris can become trapped, creating a brake drag. This can cause the rear brake to overheat, leading to rear brake damage and lock-up or failure of the rear brakes. The front brakes may also be affected on ZG1400C models.
Consequence:
If the brakes lock up or fail, there is an increased risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Kawasaki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear master cylinder rod end and remove the brake guard (if installed), free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, July 30, 2012. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-866-802-9381.
Notes:
Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
