Motorcycle Recall - Kawasaki

NHTSA Campaign ID:  12V081000
Component:  Structure
Manufacturer:  Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A.
Recall Date: 03/01/2012
Potential Number of Units Affected: 793
Defect Summary:
Kawasaki is recalling certain model year 2012 EX250JCF/A/AL/L Ninja 250, EX650ECF/L Ninja 650 and KLE650CCF/L Versys motorcycles manufactured from September 13, 2011 through October 25, 2011. Due to engine vibration and damage during assembly, the circlips on the footpeg mounting pins can break and fall off and cause the footpeg to detach from the motorcycle.
Consequence Summary:
If the foot peg detaches, it could create a road hazard for other vehicle traffic and possibly distract the rider, increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective Summary:
Kawasaki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger footpeg pin circlips, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about March 12, 2012. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-866-802-9381.
