Kawasaki has issued two recalls of motorcycles. Kawasaki is recalling certain model year 2009-10 KLX 250 motorcycles. The fuel tank could leak from cracks at the spot of the weld(s) on the side mount tabs due to stress caused by excessive clearance between the fuel tank and a frame-mounted rubber damper. Dealers will inspect and correct the fuel tank as necessary, free of charge. The potential number of units affected is 9,460.
Kawasaki also is recalling certain model year 2011 Vulcan 900 Classic LT motorcycles. The tire inner tubes might have been pinched during the mounting of the tires. Damage to the inner tubes could result in loss of air pressure, leading to tire failure and an increased risk of crash. Dealers will replace any damaged tubes free of charge. The potential number of units affected is 436.
