November 15, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission – (National) Kawasaki Motors recalls fuel filters for lawn mower and utility vehicle engines due to fire hazard. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA , November 15 announced a voluntary recall of about 55,000 fuel filters and about 1,200 tune-up kits. The fuel filter can leak, posing a fire hazard. Kawasaki received 110 reports of fuel leaks in lawn mowers, including two reports of leaks from replacement filters. The filters and kits were sold at Kawasaki dealers nationwide between August 2011 and August 2012. Consumers should immediately stop using products with the recalled fuel filters and contact Kawasaki or a Kawasaki dealer for a free repair. Source: http://www.cpsc.gov/...ml13/13041.html

Looks like they got a bunch of bad fuel filters from their supplier.

Ya gotta wonder if maybe some of the other engine makers use the same filter.

No many that actually make fuel filters, I'll bet. Especially this style. Anybody got a pic of one of these filters?

Here is a good detailed view of the filter. Good for them it is a pretty cheap fix.
