It's the first big one, yep a 24,000km service on my 2012 Ninja 650 will be performed by Realmotorsport Bangkok tomorrow.
Kawasaki Corporation states that the following must be checked in accordance with their Maintenance and Adjustment Schedule, thus ensuring the Warranty stays intact.
Valve clearance check
Steering lubrication and check
Chassis pivot point lubrication (wasn't done on the 12,000km service)
Front and rear brake fluid change
Wheel bearing inspection
As well as the regular checks.
They have allotted me a 1 hour slot, absolutely nowhere near enough time to do the above let alone the rest of the service. a good mechanic / duo would need 2 hours providing adjustment of the valves isn't required.
I only just realised this evening that the valves need checking, i would have got Rama9 to do this service if i had pulled out the owner's manual and realised that sooner.
I was fobbed off last time with my airfilter, the manual states that it should be changed every 18,000km or two years (which ever comes first) They insisted 2 years regardless of mileage and when I questioned them they said Kawasaki Thailand is not the same as the rest of the world…… Perhaps the dirt in the air isn’t so ‘dirty’ here in this part of the world????
Let’s see what gets done and what doesn't....... This part of the world is cheap for a reason
P.S. Anything that doesn't get done despite my complaints will be done by myself, i just want a stamp in my book from the dealership
