The center stand may drop to the ground while the motorcycle is being ridden

Kawasaki Motors U.S.A. is recalling 390 model year 2018 Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE (ZXT02BJ) motorcycles.

The pin for the center stand spring may have been improperly welded, and, as a result, may may shift or fall off resulting in the spring detaching and the center stand dropping to the ground unexpectedly and dragging while the motorcycle is being ridden.

The dragging center stand can cause a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Kawasaki will notify owners, and dealers will replace the left center stand bracket, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin September 19, 2018.

Owners may contact Kawasaki customer service at 1-866-802-9381. Kawasaki's number for this recall is MC18-05.
