“The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled mini bikes and go-carts made by Baja Motorsports due to concerns on leaky fuel tanks that pose a fire threat. There have been at least nine reports of gas caps leaking and detaching from the fuel tank, the government said in a statement Thursday. Additionally, the throttle can stick because of an improperly positioned fuel line and throttle cable, which poses a threat of sudden acceleration. There have been 25 reports of stuck throttles, causing injuries to the face and other body parts. The voluntary recall affects 308,000 units of Baja Motorsports mini bikes with model numbers beginning with HT65, MB165, WR65, MB196, DB30, WR90 and DR90. Go-carts with model numbers BB65, SD65, DN65 and TR65 are affected as well.”
