2012 Kawasaki Motorcycle Recall

Kawasaki has recalled certain model Ninja 250, Ninja 650 and Versys motorcycles due footpeg issues; the Japanese manufacturer says 792 models are affected.

The 2012 motorcycles involved in the recalled are as follows: EX250JCF, EX250JCFA, EX250JCFAL, EX250JCFL, EX650ECF, EX650ECFL, KLE650CCF, KLE650CCFL.

Kawasaki says due to engine vibration and damage during assembly, the clips on the mounting pins for the passenger footpeg can break and detach from the motorcycle. If the footpeg detaches, it may cause a distraction to the rider and a road hazard for other drivers.

Kawasaki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger footpeg pin clips, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on March 12. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-866-802-9381.

Customers 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
