Hoi gasten,

Ben zelf in het bezit van een ZX-6R 2004 en nu schijnt er in amerika een terugroepactie te zijn geweest, check de terrugroep brief die diverse amerikaanse kawa rijders in bus kregen:

ZX-6R/ZX6-RR MUFFLER BRACKET WELD BREAKAGE
WARNING AND RECALL NOTICE
MC03-10

Dear Kawasaki Motorcycle Owner:

This notice has been sent to you in accordance with requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.
Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in 2003 ZX600-
K1/L models and 2003/2004 ZX636-B1/L, B2 models. On eligible units, plug welds that secure the muffler bracket to the
muffler body can crack allowing the muffler to become loose in the bracket. After continued use, the muffler could
separate from the main exhaust pipe creating the potential for a crash resulting in injury or death. Our records indicate
that you have bought one of these units.

Kawasaki has initiated a Recall campaign to repair all affected units. Your Kawasaki dealer will correct this problem for
you at no charge. The correction will consist of inspecting the muffler and installing a rubber damper. Please call your
authorized Kawasaki motorcycle dealer as soon as possible to schedule an appointment and take this letter with you at
the time of your appointment. The actual repair will take up to one hour but may take longer due to scheduling at the
dealership and the time needed to obtain required parts.

DO NOT RIDE YOUR MOTORCYCLE UNTIL THIS REPAIR IS COMPLETED.

You may submit a complaint to the Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Washington, D.C.
20590, or call the toll free Auto Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236 if you believe that:
a. Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. has failed to, or is unable to, remedy this defect without charge.
b. Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. has failed to, or is unable to, remedy this defect within a reasonable time, but not
longer than 60 days after you first attempt to obtain remedy.

If you no longer have the vehicle described in this letter, or if it has been repaired, please help us to update our records
by calling Kawasaki toll free at (866) 802-9381 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.

If you experienced the failure described above prior to receiving this letter and paid to have it corrected, Kawasaki will
reimburse you for your documented costs of this repair. Contact Kawasaki’s Consumer Services Department at the
address above, or by telephone (toll-free) at (866) 802-9381 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. PT Monday through
Friday, or contact your Kawasaki dealer to request reimbursement.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but we have taken this action in the interest of your safety and your
continued satisfaction with your Kawasaki motorcycle.
Sincerely,

Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A.

Heb inmiddels kawasaki nederland ff gebeld voor info, bleek inderdaad een terrugroepactie te zijn geweest. Bleek een bepaalde serie te zijn geweest voor die van mij. Mijn ZX-6je hoeft niet te worden aangepast. :) :)

Dit topic mag voor mij op slot.

Thanx
