Exclamation Recall: 2009-2010 Kawasaki Ninja 250R/EX250

not sure if anyone saw this or not but heads up to the 250 owners. Be safe out there.

http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/reca...ja-205r-ex250/

Make it a double recall Monday, because Kawasaki is recalling 259 Ninja 250R (EX250) motorcycles from the 2009 and 2010 model years. Apparently, porosity in the engine case could allow motor oil to leak from the engine, and be deposited on the rear tire.

Kawasaki decided to issue a recall after discovering a small number of upper engine cases for the EX250 could have porosity in their aluminum casting. This porosity occurs in the vicinity of a pressurized oil passage just above the transmission output shaft, and as a
consequence
motor oil leaking from this location can be deposited on the rear tire, thus increasing the chances of a crash.


To rectify the situation, Kawasaki dealers will inspect and check for leaks in the vicinity of the suspected porosity. Units showing signs of leakage will be repaired free of charge.

The safety recall is expected to begin on or about December 8, 2009. Owners may contact Kawasaki at 1-866-802-9381, and as always
owners may also contact the NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or go to safercar.gov.

Kawi has a site to cross-reference VIN's to see if your 08+ 250R is on the recall list or not. I don't have the link because I just don't and you can find it yourself if you know what search-fu is and the important thing is my bike is okay!

Sounds like your clear. When the recall goes into effect check again to make sure the production dates hadnt changed.

For all you 250 owners, I'm just joking around. Just consider yourself lucky you don't have to over compensate.
