Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA recalls all-terrain vehicles

Kawasaki Motors Corp. U.S.A. is recalling about 9,000 of its all-terrain vehicles, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

Some of the nuts on the vehicles may not have been properly tightened and could cause the driver to lose control of the steering.

The company has received 10 reports of the nuts not being fastened tightly, one of which resulted in loss of steering control and minor injury.

The recall involves the 2007 models KFX50 and KFX90 ATVs. The vehicles were sold across the U.S. from August 2006 through December 2006 for between $1,700 US and $2,150 US.

Consumers should stop using the ATVs and contact their dealer for an inspection.
