that really sucks..you should definately let them know how much of a bitch it is to deal with etc ..so they know just 'fixing' it isn't really enough

My 07 Ninja has that same ticking noise. The dealer just told me it was because the exhaust is so quiet you can hear all the engine sounds. I've had no oil leaks though. But then again mine has only done about 400km so far. I'm feeling glad I got that extended 4 year warrenty now.

I wonder if it just wasn't fixed right the first time. Its hard to imagine something innately wrong with the bike that would cause gaskets to leak:confused

well its a metal defect in SOME of the engines... kawi will fix it unless your a tool and dont make a big deal about it...

every new product has problems at launch...

its just if the company will fix it and how much of a hassle it is....
i doubt anyone would have problems getting the blown up engine fixed... just go to the dealer and explain... send a letter to kawi directly and if all else fails small claims court and threatin a class action law suit will light a fire under any companys ass.

Hell I hope my bike blows up and they give me a problems so i can sue and use the money to make my fixed 6 into a track tool and get a zx10 for the street with all that extra money lol
