Super Sherpa Recall Summary
Kawasaki is recalling model year 2009 Super Sherpa KL250G9F motorcycles. On eligible units, blockage of an oil passage in the engine might restrict oil flow to the cylinder head.
This could result in the engine losing power and eventually stopping which could create the risk of a crash while operating the vehicle resulting in injury or death.
Kawasaki dealers will inspect the oil system and repair the cylinder head free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or before January 25, 2010. Owners may contact Kawasaki consumer services department at 866-802-9381.
Owners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
