Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A., Irvine, Calif., has recalled 291 units of its 2007 model year Bayou 250 ATV for potential steering control problems.
Kawasaki says the nuts securing the tie-rod ends to the steering shaft may not have been tightened sufficiently during assembly of the units. If the nuts loosen during operation, the operator could lose steering control, posing a risk of crashing.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
Manufactured in the United States, the units in question were sold nationwide from September 2006 through October 2006 for about $3,000.
Kawasaki asks consumers to stop using the ATV and to contact a Kawasaki dealer to schedule a free repair. The correction will consist of tightening the tie-rod end mounting nuts to the proper torque.
