2008 KFX450s recalled for fire hazard due to fuel leak

About 6000 of these ATVs sold by Kawasaki motorcycle and ATV dealers nationwide between March 2007 and June 2007 are being recalled as the flange, which holds the fuel pump in the fuel tank, can fail to stay connected to the tank itself. This can create a fuel leak, which poses a fire hazard to consumers.

Kawasaki has already received 60 reports of fuel leaks, though no injuries have been reported. Consumers should immediately stop using the ATV and contact their authorized Kawasaki dealer to arrange for installation of a free replacement fuel tank.
