The Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE is being recalled this week, because of an issue with the bike’s center stand, which may see it drop down to the ground unexpectedly. This recall affects all the H2 SX SE motorcycles sold by Kawasaki in the US market, which is 350 units, as well as any H2 SX models that have added the centerstand as an aftermarket option.
The issue concerns the centerstand pin on the Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE, which may have been improperly welded, and may shift or fall off as a result. This can cause the spring that holds the centerstand to detach, and down goes the centerstand.
Since the centerstand dropping unexpectedly causes a safety risk, a recall was filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
To remedy the issue, Kawasaki USA will notify affected owners, and Kawasaki dealers will replace the left centerstand bracket, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin September 19th, 2018. Concerned Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX SE owners may contact Kawasaki customer service at 1-866-802-9381, and reference Kawasaki’s number for this recall, which is MC18-05.
As always, the NHTSA is also available at 1-888-327-4236 and safercar.gov
