About 11,000 Kawasaki off-road vehicles are being recalled because debris can cut through the foot rest area and hurt riders' legs. The recall is for 2012 and 2013 Kawasaki Teryx4 750 vehicles with four-wheel drive. They were sold at Kawasaki dealers from October 2011 to July 2013 for about $13,400. The Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday that there have been four reports of debris breaking through the floor boards of the vehicles. Two riders reported injuries to their toes and thighs. Owners of the recalled vehicles should stop using them and contact a Kawasaki dealer, or call 866-802-9381, to get a free repair. Kawasaki said it will install floor board guards and replace damaged floor boards on the recalled vehicles.
