The problem is that the fuel tank venting system can leak, posing a fire hazard. The problem also poses a burn injury risk to riders.
Monster Moto has received 38 reports of gasoline leaks. No injuries or fires were reported, according to the recall notice posted on February 22, 2018.
This recall involves model “MM-B212″ off-road mini bikes. The recalled bikes have a black powder-coated, gusset-reinforced, welded tube steel frame.
The bikes are powered by a pull-start self-contained 212cc, 7.5 HP gas engine. The mini bikes weigh 164 pounds and measure 64″ long by 32.5″ wide by 36” tall.
There are two circular “MM 212” decals on the pull-start and the transmission cover located on the left and right side of the bikes, a “Monster Moto” decal on the left and right shock absorbers, and an “MM 212” and Monster Moto logo on the left and right frame gussets.
They were sold at Mills Fleet Farm, True Value and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and MonsterMoto.com between October 2017 and January 2018 for $800 to $850.
Consumers should stop using the mini bikes and contact Monster Moto for a free repair kit or to arrange a free repair.
