Kawasaki Recalls EX250 for Engine Air Pressure Build-Up

Kawasaki has issued a recall of certain 2008 EX250J8F and EX250J8FL motorcycles.

An engine crankcase vent hole in the air filter box may be blocked. If so, air pressure can build up inside the engine, causing the cylinder head cover gasket to fail and leak oil. If enough oil leaks from the engine, it could drip or spray onto the rear tire. This can create the risk of a crash, possibly resulting in injury or death.

487 units are affected.
