Motorcycle Safety Recall

Kawasaki has recalled certain model-year 2011 VN900D Vulcan Classic LT motorcycles due to tire tube issues. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says 436 are affected.

Kawasaki says the inner tubes on the Vulcan Classic LT may have been pinched during the mounting process, which could result in the loss of air pressure. The loss of air pressure can result in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

For motorcyclists affected by the recalls, dealers will replace any damaged tubes free of charge. The Vulcan safety recall is expected to begin during before July. Owners may contact Kawasaki consumer services at 1-866-802-9381.

Owners may also contact NHTSA’s safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visit safercar.gov.
