Kawasaki Recalls 2006-2008 Vulcan 900 Models for Fuel Leak Defect

Kawasaki has issued a recall of certain 2006-2008 Vulcan 900 Classic, Custom, and Classic LT motorcycles.

Model year 2006 VN900B6F, VN900B6FL, VN900D6F, VN900D6FL, model year 2007 VN900B7F, VN900B7FL, VN900C7F, VN900C7FL, VN900D7F, VN900D7FL, and model year 2008 VN900B8F, VN900B8FL, VN900C8F, VN900D8F and VN900D8FL motorcycles are in the recall.

The fuel hose may not be properly connected to the fuel injector delivery pipe. Continued use of the motorcycle can result in the fuel hose coming off, increasing the possibility of a fuel leak which could result in a fire or explosion.

31,789 units are affected.

Just as I expected, my dealer knew nothing about it. He even went to Kawasaki's dealer information website and found nothing.
What is your source for this information? With all due respect, why do you have this information before everyone else?

If you follow the link back to my Motorcycle Recalls article, you'll find a link to NHTSA which does the database for all recalls. -- Walt

I just checked my VIN on the owners page on Kawasaki.com and it says no outstanding recalls. I am suspicious

I've noticed that the NHTSA summary report from which I obtained this data, now doesn't show it. However, if you insert the ID 08V114000 to search for the individual recall, it's there. Are they trying to hide this since it affects 31789 motorcycles? I don't know. -- Walt

I've just received my notification that this recall is accurate in Canada. My VN900D7F is affected.

got the recall letter from Kawasaki for my Vulcan 900 - dealer looked up and printed the procedure to check this as I was first to come in (end of March) - informed me that it was fine... always better to be safe than sorry - and it is a real recall . .. my dealer had no problem finding this information on their computer! ...

I just bought a 2008 900 custom yesterday. I will be sure to ask my dealer when I go in for the final paperwork on it!
