Kawasaki is moving swiftly to replace front wheels on the recalled ZX-10R as it investigates another two potential cases of the fault.

Last week the firm announced a product safety recall which meant all bikes should have their front wheels replaced before being ridden any further. Now it is saying the first bikes have been modified.

“Recall notification letters have been sent to all registered customers of the ZX-10R, dealers have the necessary service information and the Japanese vendor is working at maximum capacity to provide the replacement wheels; the first substantial batch of which have already been sent out,” said Geoff Selvidge of Kawasaki’s European head office, KME, in Holland.

“We would like to thank our customers for their support so far and apologise for the inconvenience this safety recall will undoubtedly be causing” he continued.

Kawasaki is continuing to stress that customers should not ride their bikes until the correct replacement wheel has been fitted. Although only three confirmed cases have been reported; two further, so far unconfirmed reports, are being investigated.

Kawasaki expects that the majority of customers will be back on the road by the end of August, as originally announced.
