Has anyone had this recall done?

I just spoke with Kawasaki, and found out there is a recall on the Cam Chain Tensioner. (sorry if this has been visited before). Not sure if all models. Mine is a 2016 Non-CA model.

Has anyone had this work done? God I hate to take it to the dealer :-(

No recall that I'm aware of. The only recall on the Gen 5 that I've seen is for the steering damper mounting bolt being too tight.

There may be a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) on the tensioner, but that isn't something people are made aware of until it's brought to the dealer to check. And it only applies when the vehicle is under warranty. Recalls are something different.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Ridding the Internet of bad grammar, 1 post at a time.

Throw your VIN in there and it will tell you if you have any open recalls. My 2016 is free and clear.

Mine shows nothing...but Kawasaki said otherwise, and when I called my dealer, he found it also.

So that lookup is pretty much worthless.

How did Kawasaki say it to start with? Did they send you a letter informing you of the recall?

The more you learn, the more you realize how little you know.

I called Kawasaki to see if mine was listed as a CA model. They looked up my VIN and told me. No letter...

Now that is weird, by law they are required to inform in writing on any recalls.

Just the other day there was another thread of someone claiming that they had a transmission recall as well, never heard or saw anything on the trans recall.

Do you have a CA model?

I guess take it in and see what they fill out on the paperwork, maybe they will reference a TSB or a very small group was hit with the recall? That would not answer the fact it does not come up on that website posted earlier in the thread.
