The recall covers 2011 and 2012 S and DS models. Zero will begin reaching out to owners in the next week or two to come in and have the faulty bolts replaced. Scroll on down if you want to read the official notice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Manufacturer: Zero Motorcycles Inc.
Zero Motorcycles is recalling certain model year 2011 and 2012 S and DS motorcycles. On the affected motorcycles, the front caliper mounting bolts are susceptible to corrosion which could lead to their cracking and possible fracture.
If a front caliper bolt fractures, the caliper may come loose and interfere with the rotation of the front wheel. This could cause the front wheel to stop suddenly, increasing the risk of a crash.
Zero Motorcycles will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front caliper bolts. The recall is expected to begin mid-August 2013. Owners may contact Zero Motorcycles at 1-888-841-8085.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
