Kawasaki Issues Recall for JT1500 Jetski

22nd April 2012

#JETSKI - Kawasaki has issued a recall for their Personal Watercraft Model JT1500 after the discovery of an assembly flaw that could lead to accidents on the water.

On eligible units of Jet Ski STX-15F, Ultra 260X/LX, Ultra LX and Ultra 300X/LX models, the guide pipe may have been detached from the outer steering cable during assembly. This can cause the steering to become obstructed, creating the potential for an accident.

All units within the ranges listed are eligible for repair, including unofficial imports. Full model and identification details of units for markets other than Europe are included in Marine Notice No 16 of 2012, which is available to read or download as a PDF HERE.
