Kawasaki Recalls 2004-2007 Ninja EX250 for Fuel Leak

I found another motorcycle recall from Kawasaki for their Ninja model that quite a few people may be interested in. This one could cause a fire. Not a good thing.

2006 EX250 F6F, F6FL
2005 EX250 F19, F19L
2004 EX250 F18, F18L

Component: Fuel System, Gasoline: Storage

NHTSA Campaign ID: 07V003000 on January 2, 2007 affecting 29,559 motorcycles

Summary: On certain Ninja motorcycles, the fuel tank may have been punctured or weakened by a fairing mounting screw or manufacturing operation.

Consequence: Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the fuel tank and replace the tank if necessary. The recall is expected to begin on or about January 12, 2007. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-866-802-9381.
