Timmy S, Well I just dont like the way they are put together its like they put no thought into it. the 06-07 zx1400 has a frame recall that is a pain if the rear
engine mount bolts are tourqed too much at the factory they will crack the frame ,so you have to pull the engine to inspect the frame the way they want you to inspect it .try buying parts for any kawi that are not in stock @ dealership it takes weeks to months to get the parts,their atv line sucks to service I mean the whole line is junk ,05,06,07 zx line 600s and 1000s top end valve train issues noisy (shim bucket,cam profile) kawi makes some of the hardest hitting (accelerating) bikes out there any bike is reliable as long as it is properly maintained.Honda they make it simple to service and for the most part put thought into the service end of their units ,where I think kawi should stick to building ocean freighters and helicopters . all the manufacturers have recalls not to just pick on kawi but damn and I hate to say it but the majority
of bikes are put together here in the U.S. and thats where the shoddy craftsmanship comes from Honda is no longer going to assemble bikes here they all will come from japan and Im sure after that I will no longer have to do a honda recall. kawi are good bikes I just hate to work on them because there is no real thought on serviceing the things they are just hard to work on.
