Íhlins recall

Sorry if this has been posted, but I saw it on the zx6r forum and figured it would be wise to post it over here...

Basically if you purchased an AFTERMARKET ohlins shock for the Zx6r or the ZX10, it may be under recall.

Kawasaki seems to have missed the recall for the ohlins dampers but other bikes have been affected or if you got a damper that is off of another bike that you've moved to your Kawi, it might be affected

OHLINS IS ADVISING NOT TO OPERATE THE SHOCK UNTIL IT IS FIXED, AS FAILURE MAY INDUCE A CRASH

By Dennis Chung April 2, 2015
Íhlins is recalling its TTX36 aftermarket rear shock absorbers. The recall affects 964 shocks in the U.S. including some batches of the TTX GP, TTX RT and TTX36 MKII, produced from Nov. 9, 2013 to Feb. 20, 2015.

According to Íhlins, the piston-shaft nut in some shocks may come loose, resulting in a loss of damping and potentially causing the shock absorber to come apart. Íhlins explains it used a different method to clean top-out spring guides that resulted in higher friction. This prevents the piston from reaching its intended final position, full metal-to-metal contact with the guide.

Íhlins will notify owners and dealers will secure the piston-shaft nut to the proper torque. Owners are advised not to ride their motorcycles until the remedy has been completed.

The shocks affected by the recall fit the following motorcycles:

Aprilia RSV4
BMW S1000RR
BMW HP4
BMW S1000R
BMW R1200GS
Ducati 899 Panigale
Ducati 1199 Panigale
Ducati 1198
Ducati Multistrada 1200
Honda CBR600RR
Honda CBR1000RR
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R (599cc and 636cc)
Suzuki Hayabusa
Suzuki GSX-R600
Suzuki GSX-R750
Suzuki GSX-R1000
Triumph Daytona 675
Triumph Daytona 675R
Yamaha R6
Yamaha R1

In a separate filing, Íhlins is also recalling several of its steering dampers as being defective because their mounting brackets might crack. In total, this recall affects roughly 2,827 units.
The affected units are those that were sold in the aftermarket for the following motorcycles: Yamaha R1, R6, and FZ6; Suzuki TL1000 R and GSX1300R; Honda CB600RR; and Ducati Monster 1000, 748, 848, 916, 996, and 998. Also included in the recall are the universal steering damper kits with part numbers SD 000 through SD 005.
Concerned owners for either recall may contact Íhlins customer service at 1-800-336-9029. As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov.
