July 25, 2013
Manufacturer: Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A.
Kawasaki Motors Corp. is recalling certain model year 2013 EX300BDFAL
motorcycles manufactured August 16, 2012, through April 2, 2013. Due to
a manufacturing error, the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) may malfunction
and lose anti-lock functionality.
The anti-lock function may not perform properly allowing for wheel lock up and skidding, increasing the risk of a crash.
Kawasaki will notify owners and dealers will replace the affected ABS
pumps with a new assembly. The recall is expected to begin on, or about
August 5, 2013. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-866-802-9381.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY
