Just got a recall message in the mail today. Apparently there are weld on the exhaust that were not done properly and this could cause the exhaust to crack and allow the muffler to come loose. If you want to hear the whole thing verbatim just let me know.[V]

I would like some more information on the recall. Did Kawasaki mention that it was a certain series of 636's (from serial #... to serial #...) or all 2003 636's.

Yup...got the letter today....I wonder if its only for stock exhaust systems? What if you change your whole exhaust system? Are you still a part of the recall?

Hmmm...I wonder?

I was at the dealer and they told me the recall involves adding a rubber groment to the bracket. If it is not added the muffler can crack. They also check the muffler and will replace it if it is already cracked.

According to my dealer, if you install aftermarket exhaust, you void your warrenty. I have personally seen others have warrenty work done with aftermarket equiptment installed. Best bet if you have new exhaust and need warrenty work is to re-install your stock equiptment and have it done then.
The only way you get a new stock can is if you drive it in with a stock can.
I am still waiting on them to finish mine...the pipe is on back order. Check out this thread for more details.
