2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 Motorcycle Recall

Kawasaki is recalling 11,097 of its 2013 Ninja 300 sportbikes due to stalling issues.

Kawasaki says due to an improper setting in the Electronic Control Unit (ECU), the Ninja motorcycles, which were manufactured July 16, 2012 through April 27, 2013, may stall under deceleration. If the motorcycle stalls, it can increase the risk of a crash.

Kawasaki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ECU. The recall began on August 5, 2013. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-866-802-9381.

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