2009 / 2010 Kawasaki Vulcan Recall

Kawasaki Motorcycle Recalls

Kawasaki is recalling an unspecified number of 2009 – 2010 Vulcan motorcycles (various models) due to engine-cooling problems.

Kawasaki says the engine may stall if the motorcyclist is coasting with the clutch pulled in; the Vulcan may stall due to an improper setting of the engine control unit (ECU). The recall says engine stalling could create a potential for a crash, resulting in injury or death.

Dealers will replaced the ECU with one containing revised settings to fix the engine stalling. Owners may contact Kawasaki Consumer Services at 1-866-802-9381.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.gov.
