KAWASAKI have issued a recall on the 2018 Ninja H2 SX recently as a fault has been picked up that could cause the main stand to open during while the bike is in motion leading to the risk of an accident.

The message on the FEMA site reads: “The main stand may flip open during travel because of an error in the safeguard mechanism manufacturing process. This could lead to an increased risk of accidents.”

The problem stems from an incorrectly installed pin in the centre stand spring that could fail, causing the stand to drop down and drag on the road surface. If at this time it came into contact with a pothole or manhole cover the rider could lose control and crash the bike.

Any affected customers will be notified by Kawasaki, and the centre stand bracket will be replaced or repaired at a Kawasaki dealership, free of charge. For more information or to check if your bike is affected, customers should contact their local Kawasaki dealer.
