How long does the transmission recall take?

Got the call that my bike is affected so I gotta take it in to a dealer to fix and my question is this: How long does it generally take for them to replace gears 2,3 and 4? I am missing track time while they do this dammit!!!!!!!

Gen5 that's just Fantastic.

The process shouldn't take more that a few hours, but that will depend on how busy the dealership is with all the bikes or how long they have to wait for parts. Could take a couple of days depending on when they can squeeze you in.

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

Depends upon dealer. I always talk to service admin and set up drop off time; then wait for the phone call to get the bike out of there. So funny. And I never pressure techs about getting the job done fast. In another way, don't get on the wrong side of a tech guy or lady or whatever.

my dealer when they called me they told me that Kawasaki had the recall listed as taking 3 hours. Took a few days to get the part(s) in, they did the recall the same day they got the parts in.

Am I correct in assuming they will have to drain the oil to do this job?

Nope. It's not a bad idea to do that, but there's no requirement to drain the oil to remove the cassette transmission. Some small amount of oil will likely come out when the clutch cover is removed, but the oil does not need to be drained and refilled.

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

Do the dealers change the gears in the transmission or Kawasaki gives them the whole input and output shaft already assemble for them to just install?
