2010-2012 Kawasaki KLX110 and KLX110L Recalled for Fuel Leakage
Kawasaki has initiated a recall on 2010-2012 KLX110 and KLX110L entry-level off-road motorcycles because of potential fuel leaks. The recall affects 9,978 units in the U.S.
According to Kawasaki, fuel can leak from between the fuel tank and the tap on certain KLX110 models. Fuel leakage in the presence of a flame or spark could cause a fire or explosion.
Neither Kawasaki or the Consumer Product Safety Commission have provided any additional information about the cause of the fuel leak, but a similar recall announcement from the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission attributes the problem to the fuel tanks being deformed by unleaded fuel.
Kawasaki dealers will replace the fuel tank and fuel tap o-ring on affected units.
