The Kawasaki KXL110 Recall
Potential fuel leaks have resulted in Kawasaki recalling nearly 10,000 KLX110 and KLX110L entry-level off-road bikes. The Kawasaki KLX110 recall includes model years 2010 through 2012. These off-road bikes are generally purchased for younger riders first learning to ride on the trails and are not considered motocross or competition bikes.
The Kawasaki KLX110 vs. KLX110L
The two models are very similar sharing the same size engine, carburetors, and fuel capacity. The major differences are found in the transmission and chassis and dimensions.
The KLX110L has longer front and rear wheel travel and also boasts a higher seat height and ground clearance. The result is the KLX110L having an overall height about 1 and ½ inches taller than the KLX110 model.
The Kawasaki KLX110 recall includes both models, as the design of the fuel tank and the fuel tap is the same on both models. Based on the information Kawasaki provided in the recall, fuel can leak from between the fuel tank and the tap, any type of fuel leak in the presence of a flame or spark can cause a fire or explosion.
What to do if you own a Kawasaki KLX110
Kawasaki will replace the fuel tank o-ring as well as the fuel tank free of charge to all affected units. Owners of the recalled off-road bikes will be contacted by Kawasaki. If you or someone you know owns a 2010 to 2012 Kawasaki KLX110 or KLX110L you can contact Kawasaki or your neares Kawasaki dealer with the VIN number to find out if your unit is affected.
