Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A., Irvine, Calif., is recalling approximately 21,900 of its 2005 model year Brute Force ATVs.
Kawasaki says tie rod separation caused by either wear or severe impact can occur during operation, causing the front wheel to separate from the steering control. The company has received about 140 reports of tie rod problems, resulting in four reports of injuries.
The recall involves the 2005 KVF750-A1 and KVF750-B1 Brute Force ATVs manufactured in the United States and sold nationwide from June 2004 through November 2005 for between $7,600 and $7,900.
Consumers with recalled ATVs were sent direct notice from Kawasaki, and asked to stop using the ATVs and contact a local Kawasaki dealer to schedule an appointment for a free repair.
