The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Kawasaki Motors Corp, is announcing a voluntary recall of 2008 Kawasaki KLX140A8F/B8F off-highway motorcycles. They are designed for the beginner as well as the more advanced rider. They are green in color, manufactured in Thialand, and have “Kawasaki” identification on the sides of the fuel tank and KLX140 underneath the seat on both sides.

One or more of the motorcycle’s frame welds could be missing or made incorrectly allowing the frame to crack or break, posing a risk of serious injury to riders. This defect is believed to affect approximately 200 units. There have been no reports of incidents or injuries.

They were sold by Kawasaki motorcycle dealers nationwide between January 2008 and February 2008 for about $2,700. Consumers should immediately stop using the off-road motorcycles and contact their authorized Kawasaki dealer to arrange for a free inspection and repair. Consumers with recalled units have been sent direct notification.

Consumer Contact: Call Kawasaki. toll-free at (866) 802-9381 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. PT Monday through Friday or visit www.kawasaki.com

Where exactly is Thialand? Instead of implementing legislation like the ban on sales of youth motorcycles perhaps the CPSC should focus on something more basic - like 4th grade spelling.
