New York, N.Y.—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Kawasaki has voluntarily recalled off-road motorcycles due to the threat of a gas leak. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on February 14, 2014.

The motorcycles have a 110 cubic centimeter engine, a green fuel tank, shroud cover and fenders, a black seat and white side covers. ‘Kawasaki’ is on both sides of the shroud cover. Model names and numbers are on both side covers directly beneath the seat. KLX110 models have an automatic clutch, a shift pedal and no clutch lever on the handlebars. The seat height for these models is about 27 inches. KLX110L models have a manual clutch, a shift pedal and a clutch lever on the handlebars.
