I would love to post a review of my brand new '07 ZX6R, but the engine blew due to a manufacturer's defect on my 6th day of riding it. During those six days, the bike knocked and didn't perform well and Kawasaki's customer service has been the worst in the world to deal with. All of the parts are on backorder, and I have waited now 23 days of the best weather Michigan has to offer while they do nothing to please the customer. I highly suggest going with another manufacturer, not because of performance, or ergonomics, or the bike itself, but because Kawasaki apparently doesn't care about the consumer! My bike with <500 miles will be rebuilt along side of a bombardier watercraft and by the same person who just changed the oil in someone's golf cart and I am supposed to be okay with that while I never had a bike that performed like the bike I paid for. If you are in Southeast Mi, stay away from Nicholson's in Ann Arbor and stay away from Kawasaki no matter where you live.

Just about any auto dealer that has to rebuild engines does them in the same manner you are speaking. They still last for thousands and thousands of miles. Besides, shouldn't this all be covered under your warrantee? So if it breaks again because of someones ****(filter test) up you won't be liable anyway.

Don't go getting all ****y now......

The proper PC name for the fuel pet**** is "petweanie" as in " I always run my fingers over my petweanie before I go for a ride to make sure it's pointing in the right direction. Also check for leaks or dripping, If I find my petweanie dribbling I give the two large nuts a twist and it seems to stop"

If I find mine dripping, I usually just mash it over with a hammer. It's not like I'm gonna use it anytime soon, anyways.........

Must be a British petweanie. When my American petweanie's nuts are twisted properly, fluid is emitted, rather than stopped.

hey ninjabully I feel bad for your experience but it might be just a dealer problem when I bought my 2001 kawi ninja new from mountain adventures in conyers Ga I floated a valve 2 days after I bought 2 days later I had a brand new bike so its not all bad it might just be nicholson kawasaki www.mountainadventuresga.com
