  1. dropped my zx10r as soon as i got the recall letter, dealer said theyhad to do a two step process first test the bike with a kit from kawi (witch no dealer had gotten yet) and if needed repairs they have to replace main wire harness( also a part no one has gotten). sad to say my bikes been at shop for over a week now waitn….

  2. I may be getting scammed by the dealer Took mine in they said the did the repair. Then a few days ago my bike died when I left the dealer. Yet the dealer did the initial fix a day after I took it to them over a month ago I am wondering if they ever ordered the part to begin with. Now I have to check with Kawasaki to see if they even had a service order now that the dealer is saying I have to pay but they are saying it was the power commander when the bike died exactly to the letter of the Manufacture so now I have to see if they are going to file a claim to get paid twice from Kawi and have me pay if so I know that the dealer is scamming people and lying about work
