The recall includes Kawasaki motorcycles from the 2010 through 2012 model years, impacting KLX110 and KLX110L off-road motorcycles sold with a 110 cubic centimeter engine, green fuel tank, shroud cover and fenders, black and white seats, and “Kawasaki” printed on both sides of the cover. The KLX110 models have an automatic clutch with a shift pedal and the KLX110L models have a manual clutch, shift pedal and a clutch lever on the handle bars. Both models measure about 27 to 29 inches tall at the seat. Model names and numbers can be located beneath the seat on both models.

The affected off-road motorcycles were manufactured in Thailand under Kawasaki Motors Corp. U.S.A. of Irvine, California where they were sold at Kawasaki dealers nationwide from November 2009 through January 2014 for between $2,100.00 and $2,350.00.

The CPSC recommends that customers stop using the recalled motorcycles immediately and contact a Kawasaki dealer nearby to schedule a free repair.
