NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
08V158000 Engine and Engine Cooling Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. 03/12/2008 487
Defect Summary
Kawasaki is recalling 487 model year 2008 EX250J8F and EX250J8FL motorcycles. An engine crankcase vent hole in the air filter box may be blocked. If so, air pressure can build up inside the engine, causing the cylinder head cover gasket to fail and leak oil.
Consequence Summary
If enough oil leaks from the engine, it could drip or spray onto the rear tire. This can create the risk of a crash, possibly resulting in injury or death.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will inspect and repair the air filter box and replace the necessary components free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during April 2008. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-866-802-9381.
