Kawasaki recalls 9,400 KLX250 motorcycles


Kawasaki Motors Corp. is recalling 2009 and 2010 KLX250 motorcycles. The potential number of vehicles affected is 9,460.

Vehicles manufactured during this time could have potential fuel system issues. The company says that the fuel tank may leak from cracks at the spot welds on the side mount tabs. This can be caused from the clearance between the fuel tank and a frame-mounted rubber damper. The result is potential fuel leakage, which may lead to fire or explosion when exposed to a spark or flame.

Dealers are asked to inspect and correct the fuel tank free of charge. For more information, contact Kawasaki at 866-802-9381.
