Selected 2012 Kawasaki Models Recalled

2012 Kawasaki Versys 650
The 2012 Kawasaki Versys 650 is one of a number of models recalled for a minor fault.

A minor defect has caused Kawasaki to recall a number of its 2012 models.

The problem is with the circlips that secure the passenger footrest pivot pins, which may be brittle due to a manufacturing defect.

This may cause the circlip to fail, allowing the pivot pins to come out of position and the footrest to detach while riding.

Kawasaki says this creates a potential accident hazard for the rider.

Despite being a minor issue, it does show how seriously Kawasaki takes it quality control.

Affected models are:

  • EX250JCF – 2012 NINJA 250R
  • EX250JCFA – 2012 NINJA 250RSE
  • KLE650DCFW – 2012 VERSYS 650L ABS
  • ER650FCFW – 2012 ER-6nL ABS

Owners of affected bikes will be contacted by Kawasaki, advised of the recall and referred to an authorised repairer.
