KAWASAKI  is recalling certain 2011-to-2012 ZX-10R models for an oil leak. The potential number of units affected is 4,170.

Engine oil may leak from the crankcase at the starter mounting point and pool on top of the crankcase. This oil could eventually spill over onto the rear tire, increasing the risk of a crash.

Kawasaki will notify owners, and dealers will remove the starter and seal the crankcase, free of charge.

The recall will begin shortly, according to the notice issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
