2012 Versys Recall
I don't remember seeing this posted before. If so, apologies.
The May issue of Motorcycle Consumer News arrived today and contained the following:
"Kawasaki is recalling certain model year 2012 Kawasaki KLE650CCF and KLE650CCF/L Versys motorcycles manufactured from September 13, 2011 through October 25, 2011. Due to engine vibration and damage during assembly the circlips on the footpeg mounting pins can break and fall off causing the footpeg to detach from the motorcycle. (Some words concerning consequences). Remedy: Kawasaki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger footpeg pin circlip free of charge. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 866-802-9381."
It isn't clear to me whether it pertains to both rider and passenger footpeg pin circlips. It's quoted as written in MCN. It also pertains to the 2012 Ninja 250 and Ninja 650 manufactured between the dates mentioned.
