The exhaust pipe nuts may not be tight enough

Kawasaki Motors Corp. is recalling 574 motorcycles that may have insecure exhaust pipes and collars. 

The automaker says certain 2020 W800 Cafe (EJ800C) and 2020-2021 W800 (EJ800D) motorcycles may have come equipped with exhaust pipe nuts that were not properly tightened. This could cause the exhaust pipe nuts and collar to fall off the motorcycle, increasing the risk of a crash and creating a road hazard.

Dealers are being told to replace the gaskets and collars in affected motorcycles and reinstall the muffler, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on November 3, 2021. 

Consumers can contact the company’s customer service line at 1-866-802-9381 for more information.
