Baja Motorsports Mini Bike Recall Issued After Crash Reports

An estimated 4,600 gas-powered mini bikes manufactured by Baja Motorsports have been recalled, following reports of the front forks separating from the wheel, posing a serious crash hazard that has already resulted in 11 injuries.  

The Baja Mini bikes recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on September 9, following at least 22 consumer reports that indicate the front forks disconnected from the wheel while in use.

To date, the manufacturer indicates that all injuries have been minor, but riders may face a risk of serious injury from a mini bike crash if the front fork disconnects, including abrasions, broken bones, trauma injuries, and even death. As a result, Baja Motorsports and the CPSC are asking riders to stop using the recalled mini bikes immediately due to the risk.

The recall includes Baja Motorsports gas-powered mini bikes with model name “Baja Warrior 200” inside a circle with wings attached to both sides of the storage tank. The recalled model was manufactured from November 2014 to December 2014 and has the date of manufacture in “MM/YY” format printed on the bottom right of the Vehicle Emissions Control Information label. The bikes have a black frame with a black padded seat and camouflage colored fenders and are equipped with side reflectors, a headlight, a taillight, and a storage tank.

The recalled mini bikes were manufactured in China under Baja Inc. d/b/a/ Baja Motorsports of Anderson, South Carolina where they were distributed for sale exclusively at Tractor Supply Company stores from February 2015 through August 2015 for about $650.

Customers are being asked to stop riding the recalled mini bikes immediately and contact Baja Motorsports at 888-863-2252 or visit them online at www.bajamotorsports.com for information on how to schedule a free repair.

This is the second Baja mini bike recall due to problems with the forks in as many years. In November 2013, another Baja mini bike recall affected 23,000 MB200 bikes manufactured from August 2010 to August 2012 following 13 complaints of forks separating.

    When i was 8 years old my dad got us one for christmas. I rode the crap out of it. I loved that mini bike. One day we were all at the community center down the road from our house. My dad was working on his truck while my two brothers and i were riding the mini bike. I was a daredevil. I loved to jump stuff on my bicycle.

One day we were all at the community center down the road from our house. My dad was working on his truck while my two brothers and i were riding the mini bike. I was a daredevil. I loved to jump stuff on my bicycle. I thought about jumping the mini bike a few times, but never did until that day. I saw a small hill that ran up at an angle from the ditch. I went right for it full speed and jumped it. I landed it flawlessly the first couple times, but 3rd times a charm. I backed up a little further this time and went for it. As soon as the bike went airborne the front forks separated. When i landed they dug into the ground and i smacked my face right in the center of the handlebars. My nose was shattered, my cheekbone caved in from the side, and i had a double concussion. I ended up having to have facial reconstructive surgery to fix my face. Im 24 now, and i still have nightmares about that day. I dont want to gain anything from posting this. Dad told me not to do it, but i did anyway. I just want people to be aware of what could happen with one of these bikes if not properly inspected.
