Recall Category: Engine And Engine Cooling, Electrical System – Damaged Air Suction Valves may cause fire

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V307000 reports the Engine Control Unit (“ECU”) programming may cause the engine to backfire when the quick shift function is used under high engine load, possibly resulting in damage to the Air Suction Valves.

According to the NHTSA, damaged Air Suction Valves may allow high temperature exhaust gas to blow back through and melt surrounding parts, increasing the risk of a fire, burns, crash, MVA or other impact event with consequential injury and/or life-changing results.

Kawasaki will notify registered owners, and dealers will reprogram the ECU and inspect the air suction valves and surrounding parts, replacing them as necessary. All repairs will be performed free of charge. This recall is expected to begin June 8, 2020. Owners may contact Kawasaki Customer Service toll-free at 1-866-802-9381 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Pacific Standard Time (“PST”). Kawasaki’s designation for this recall is MC20-02.
