On affected motorcycles, the ignition wire may chafe due to rubbing on the fuel tank. This can cause a short circuit and possibly cause the engine to stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Kawasaki says it will notify owners, and dealers will install additional shielding and padding to prevent the ignition wire from shorting. Any ignition switch that has damaged wires will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Kawasaki customer service at 1-866-802-9381. Kawasaki’s number for this recall is MC15-10.

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
