Kawasaki has issued a recall of certain 2003 VN1600-A1 and VN1600-A1L motorcycles.
On certain motorcycles, the fuel tank is mounted to the chassis by means of tabs that are spot welded to the tank, then braised/welded around a portion of their circumference. Under certain conditions, repeated stress can crack the tank at the location of the tabs, and allow fuel to leak.
4352 units are affected.
