I bought a brand new machine on the 28th of March, unfortunately with 8 miles on the 29th of March I have a blown engine. I did not drive this machine hard at all. I do understand that things happen and I feel Kawasaki and the dealer I took it to are going to take care of me.
The engine got so hot that sensors melted off the engine, but the radiator was cool to the touch. Other than that I cant wait to ride it.

I’ve been told they don’t PDI them EVEN THOUGH they are supposed to. They just flag the hours Kawasaki pays the dealer and don’t do the work. I had several issues with mine when it was delivered. Same with my brother, there was complete bolts out of the cage. Literally from truck to your home, no in between process.

I’m just frustrated, as long as they put an engine in it, just aggravating, it ruined my vacation, first day of vacation it blew had 3 days sitting under a tent

Kawi dealers are just bad bro, I’ve talked to people all around the country and it’s the same awful customer service. Although I’ve heard good things from Big Pine Motorsports. Just remember the surveys you receive and the feedback you provide are gold to them. I believe the dealers even get money if they hit certain criteria. I tanked all of mine, drew out my experience and raised some eyebrows up in the corporate ranks. Even still, nothing has changed after an extensive phone call with kawi corporate. The best thing to do is do the majority of the things yourself, granted an engine is understandable or major component failure. All other things I’ve done myself and never been happier.
