2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE Recall

Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. is recalling certain 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE (ZXT02BJ) motorcycles due to center-stand issues.

Kawasaki says the pin for the center stand spring may have been improperly welded, and, as a result, the pin may shift or fall off.

If this occurs, the spring may detach and the center stand may drop to the ground unexpectedly and drag while riding. This could cause a loss of control increasing the risk of a crash.
