The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling about 4,300 Baja Motorsports Dirt Bikes sold exclusively at Pep Boys stores nationwide from December 2010 through January 2011 for between $550 and $650.
Fuel can leak from the fuel tank, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers. The company has received six reports of fires from fuel leakage including one report of minor burns to a consumer’s legs.
This recall involves all model DR50 and DR70 Baja dirt bikes with VIN numbers beginning with “L98.” The model number and VIN are located on the product data plate, which is located where the handle bars meet the body of the bike.
Consumers should immediately stop using the product and contact Baja Motorsports to schedule a free repair. For more info, contact Baja Motorsports toll-free at (888) 863-2252 between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at www.bajamotorsports.com
