2012 Kawasaki Teryx4 Yellow

Kawasaki, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, has issued a recall for 2012-13 Kawasaki Teryx4 UTVs.

According to the recall notice, either of the front tires could deflect a foreign object (like a stick or rock) into the left or right floorboard. This could result in the object breaking through the floorboard and protruding into the foot rest area of the vehicle and, which could potentially lead to injury. Kawasaki has received four reports of debris breaking through the floorboards, including two reports of injuries to riders’ toes and thighs.

The recall affects approximately 11,000 2012-13 Teryx4 , LE, Camo and EPS models. The Teryx4 comes in red, camouflage, green, blue and yellow colors. The model name “Teryx4” appears on the driver’s side of the hood.
