Company: Kawasaki.

Ninja 250 engine breather could be blocked.

Company: Kawasaki. 

Models involved: 2008 Ninja 250R.

Problem: Engine crankcase vent hole could be blocked due to material left in it at time of manufacture. Increased internal engine pressure could cause head gasket to fail and allow oil to leak out of motor.

Consequence: Leaking oil could find its way to the rear tire and err the coefficient of friction towards zero (i.e it all goes slippery). Slippery rear tire can result in crash.

Fix: Dealer will inspect air-cleaner case and remove any obstructions.

Recall Number
: 2008096.
