Kawasaki Motors Corp. is recalling about 18,000 motorcycles because the rear brakes can fail. The recall was made in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Safety Commission.

The recalled motorcycles are 2001 KX series motocross bikes with model numbers KX65, KX85, KX100, KX125, KX250 and KX500...

The affected motorcycles were sold from May to November of last year. No injuries as a result of the break defect have been reported, the commission said.

Kawasaki, based in Irvine, Calif., says consumers should stop using the motorcycles immediately. Kawasaki will send owners a repair kit to make the repairs themselves. Owners can also return the motorcycle to a Kawasaki dealer for free repair.
