If you find any, please follow through with the info below.

After much research, We think we may have found the right way to address the "Cracked Frame" issue with Kawasaki Motors.

We have a specific private group site set up for Gen 1 owners with cracked frames to post information Kawasaki will need.
This is a closed group, only Gen 1 owners with cracked frames are invited...
If you ride any other Gen or do not have a cracked frame, this is not for you.
Please do not comment on this post.
And most importantly, please read all of the directions first,
before starting to fill out info so you put the info in the right location.
This is for us to compile a list of all gen 1 owners with this problem to contact Kawasaki with.
A Facebook group was chosen due to their privacy settings.
Once you are added to the group, you may add your information.
You can leave this group at any time.

Here is the link to the site.

I welcome all riders with cracked frames to join in the hope of,
if we mass enough numbers of people with a common problem,
maybe, just maybe, they will address the issue and fix it.
Don't hold your breath, but the very least they can do is say no.

Thank you,

It's all good brotha, :thumbsup::eek:ccasion1

I figured we might make more headway organized into 1 group than individually.

1 Ninja = Strong
500 Ninja's = Unbeatable :lol:

*** update ***

Ok everyone,

Here is the situation... I made some calls to a rep in SO.FLA.
From what I am being told, if you are not the original owner or,
if the bike is not stock in any way (any aftermarket parts),
or the bike has been dropped in any way, moving or not.
They will shoot you down.

So, if you have any of the above, don't take your bike to the dealership to have them look at it.
When Kawi comes back and says NO, you don't qualify,
you will be responsible for the bill of taking it apart and re-assembling which will be expensive...
And your vin # will be listed & stored as inspected and refused.

So, unless you are the original owner, it's still bone stock, without a scratch on it, your outta luck with that option.

** And let me add that if you have pics of your bike wheeelying, modded, i.e. stretched, lowered.
You will be shot down. **

Now, that being said.
Kawasaki is aware of this site, and is monitoring what's being said. Yup.

That's why I started a private site for the rest of the info I have.
And I have more for you to learn.
I'm not posting it in a PUBLIC forum. Let em work for it.

It's high time Kawasaki stood up and acknowledges this problem and takes corrective action.
Because I'm sure this is going to lead to a black eye for Kawi. Bad P/R on their product.
Because when I get everything in order and facts checked,
I'm going to the media and motorcycle magazines with it.
And see just how much noise I can make about this issue.
See if that gets their attention.

I'm digging in my heels and getting ready.

Everyone, please spread the word about this.

Hellsrazor :beer2:

good on you.
dont know if any of you know but in europe ,2-3 years ago ,suzuki had a recall on 05 gixxer1000s with cracked frames. as it goes. it was a friend of mine who started the ball rolling as his frame cracked in 3 different spots and he wrote and to suzi in japan with his mechanics autherisation and pics etc etc. . suzi gave in and he had a new frame and about 7000 other k5 owners in europe. all his correspondence is framed and hanging in his lounge lol:cool:

I had a zx14 that had the frame crack. Does the gen 1 zx10 a monoque chassis like the 2006 zx14? Im curious if its something inherant with monoque chassis or maybe kawasaki trying too hard to lighten up there sport bikes.
