Hey guys, does anyone know the KRX factory ride height measurements, and where they are measured from? After a few miles and accessories it looks like it could use a little adjustment.

You talking about tires leaning in at the top? If so, same here. Gonna call the dealer tomorrow. Hopefully a warranty fix/adjustment.
Other than that this thing rocks.

I noticed my front tires were leaning in at the top right away when I brought her home. I notified my dealer and when I brought her in for initial service for break in lube change, the tech said when I picked her up that they had done some checking and that they were out of adjustment and corrected them for $89.00, which I complained about! Now, 100km later they look the same. Going to monitor the tires for irregular wear. Marino

I have the same negative camber on all four corners. Brought to dealer when they changed the oil for being milky and said the camber is right. Kawasaki did it that way. Can that be rights?

It helps but no. Design is to have camber for handling, it is a good thing to have camber. If ya dont like camber buy Superatv arms and adjust it out.

A few things. The negative camber is normal. Shock therapy did a great video explaining how it works. Second they shouldn’t have charged you a dime. $89 for a warranty problem? Wow. Kawi dealers already have a bad rep. This only adds fuel to the fire.

shock therapy did a video on why the krx is built that way. Kawasaki built negative camber into the car on purpose. Shock therapy’s video goes over all of It and why they designed it that way.

Sorry I didn’t see the post right before mine saying the same thing. My internet hasn’t been great today and things aren’t loading well.

I do understand why they made it this way, neg camber is good and i can live with the 1 1/4 inch neg camber but when its 2 3/16 neg camber thats what I am having a problem with. Again it should be the same measurements on both sides. My dealer said they called kawasaki and they said its normal, Sorry but I have a problem believing that. Its going back to my dealer aug 11th because of the shifting not being smooth its really getting jerky, also my rear shocks are rubbing the springs real hard, and hoping they will change my old spindles out to the new improved spindles before they break while riding, I cannot believe they do not have a recall for a safety problem like spindles breaking. and again to complain about the right side neg camber measurement. before I will take it back to my dealer again I will call kawasaki again about everything that is wrong with it. Kawasaki used to be great with warranties maybe times have changed.

Just wanted to give a heads up to everyone with a KRX, I just got off the phone with Kawasaki, We had a long talk about the problems that I am having with my KRX and for the ones that do not have the updated spindles and lower a arms yet they are coming and should be ready to ship to dealers early to mid august. what everyone has to do is call Kawasaki at # 866-802-9381 and tell them to put you on the list for updated spindles and lower a arms. They will ask you for your e mail address and will send you an e mail when they ship it to your dealer for them to install them. To me this is awesome news. Oh and by the way be ready to be on hold for along time, But it will be worth it!!!
