Recall info (Kawasaki)

I just stumbled across this on consumer reports and I know some of you have kids who ride so here is some recall info. I wasn't sure where to post this so here it is. :) There are a lot of recalls for motorcycles in general at www.consumerreports.org and I think the recall info is free for the public. Please pass it along if you know anyone with the affected bikes:

They used an aluminum cotter pin! That's like throwing a sheet of paper off the titanic to keep it from sinking.
