Kawasaki Recalls 2009 Super Sherpa K250G9F for Engine Oil Passage Blockage

Kawasaki is recalling model year 2009 Super Sherpa KL250G9F motorcycles.

On eligible units, blockage of an oil passage in the engine might restrict oil flow to the cylinder head. This could result in the engine losing power and eventually stopping which could create the risk of a crash.

The number of units has not been announced.

Check out my Motorcycle Recalls feature for more details.

The company is building a prototype of its Switchblade Multi Mode Vehicle, or flying motorcycle, and hopes to sell a $60,000 do-it-yourself kit as early as 2011 (engine and avionics are sold separately, for about $25,000 total)." -- Jim Nash
