June 6 2010.

Kawasaki has issued a recall of some 2010 model year Z1000 machines including
the ABS variants.

On affected machines, the left front brake hose may make contact with the brake disc during extremely heavy braking. This can damage the hose leading to a fluid leak which could cause brake failure and result in an accident. 

Customers with machines in the affected range are being contacted by letter and
advised to contact their local franchised Kawasaki road bike dealer who will carry out
the necessary work at no cost.
