Kawasaki Motors Corp., USA, has announced a recall of its 2005 model KLX110 off-road motorcycle.
The bikes, sold by Kawasaki dealers from July 2004 to present for $1,649, were manufactured by Kawasaki Motors Enterprise Co., Ltd. of Thailand.
Kawasaki says the rear shock unit on approximately 1,500 units may have been assembled with an incorrect o-ring, allowing fluid to leak from the shock. Fluid loss from the shock can compromise the shock's damping characteristics, which can render the motorcycle unstable.
KMC USA says no incidents involving injury have occurred.
Consumers are asked to stop using the motorcycles immediately and to contact their Kawasaki dealer to schedule an appointment for a free replacement of the rear shock.
For more information, call Kawasaki at 866/802-9381 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. PT, Monday through Friday, or visit www.kawasaki.com.
