If you’ve got a Kawi dual-sport kicking around at the back, you might want to check to see if your beauty was one of the ones affected. The date range was purportedly 2020-2022, with initial reports stating that only Japanese market-oriented KLX230 Dual Sports With ABS models created between September 1st and 7th were included in the recall.

However, The original recall on NHTSA’s website has remedied the concern, stating that, “another report was later received of a unit with the same problem assembled on a date outside that range which prompted Kawasaki to issue a recall in America also.”

Apparently, a front brake rotor with a smaller diameter is the problem, meaning any bikes that were given the wrong brakes “fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 122, ‘Motorcycle Brake Systems.’”

Don’t worry – as per usual, Kawi will be providing the necessary stuffs to ensure that their dealers will ‘replace the front brake rotor and pads, as necessary, free of charge.’

Contact Kawasaki’s customer service at 1-866-802-9381 (the number for this recall is MC22-04).
