Kawasaki Motors Pty Ltd — Steering Knuckle Breakage
What are the defects?
The tightening torque of the knuckle joint bolt (pinch bolt) is not specified high enough to hold the ball joint securely. If the ball joint is loose in the knuckle, the knuckle, the pinch bolt, and the ball joint wear, causing the ball joint to fall off.
