Kawasaki is currently recalling certain model 2009 and 2010 KLX250 motorcycles. The recall began last month and currently, owners of these Kawasaki models are asked to contact Kawasaki consumer services department at 866-802-9381. According to Kawasaki, the fuel tank can potentially leak from holes in the spot welds, which are located on the side mount tabs. These holes are supposedly caused by stress from excessive space between the fuel tank and its rubber damper. Leaking fuel in the presence of sparks or flames can potentially cause a fire or even explosion that could result in injuries or death. Upon contacting the costumer service department, Kawasaki dealers will review and if needed, correct the fuel tank, for free.

If you or a loved one has suffered from injuries or has even died in some sort of accident involving a faulty or defective product, you may be entitled to compensation. It is important that you call a Missouri products liability attorney to discuss your potential case and learn your rights after an accident involving a product defect.
