In cooperation with the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), American Suzuki Motor Corp. voluntarily recalled about 1,300 QuadSport ATVs, according to the CPSC.
This recall involves all Suzuki 2009 model year LT-Z400K9 (QuadSport Z400) and LT-Z400ZK9 (QuadSport Z400 Special Edition) ATVs. “QuadSport Z400” or “QuadSport Z400Z” is written on the sides and left front fender of the ATV. “Suzuki” is written on the sides of the ATV.
The vehicles were recalled because the flame arrester screen can become detached from its mounting ring, preventing the throttle valve from returning to the idle position when the throttle lever is released and causing the rider to lose control of the ATV, stated the CPSC.
American Suzuki has received two reports of flame arrester screens detaching from the mounting ring. No injuries have been reported.
The vehicles were sold at Suzuki ATV dealers nationwide from September 2008-June 2010 for $6,500-$6,700.
