Kawasaki Ninja Battery Dead Again?

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R and ZX10R recallKawasaki Ninja motorcycles are being recalled starting February 27, 2012 because of a problem with the voltage regulator.  The specific models involved in the recall are the 2009-2012 Ninja ZX-6R and the 2008-2011 Ninja ZX-10R.

The voltage regulator on these model Ninja motorcycles will be replaced by Kawasaki dealers free of charge.  If you own one of the 20,512 Ninjas affected by this recall, and live in the USA, you can contact Kawasaki in at 949-770-0400.

How important is this Ninja recall?  Without getting the voltage regulator replaced, your battery could become drained and the bike could stall without warning.  Our advice is go get the voltage regulator replaced free of charge before your battery has no charge.

Lots of Ninja owners have had trouble diagnosing this problem.  Replacing the battery several times and replacing the starter are some of the things owners have tried.
