Baby adventurer recall on light bulb

Kawasaki Versys-X 300 available light bulb

Kawasaki Australia has recalled their baby adventurer, the Versys-X 300 over a possibility the rear tail/brake light bulb could fall out.

Apparently the globe socket assembly can become loose, especially if the adventure bike is used on rough roads.

You can check whether your bike is affected by scanning the VIN number list attached to the end of this article.

Otherwise, Kawasaki Motors Australia will contact owners who are asked to take their bike to an authorised Kawasaki dealer for free replacement of the tail/brake light globe socket.
