Lets just say after owning alot of Kawasaki's I dought I'll ever buy another one again....the quality of the 03 636 just plain old sucks....I've found cross threaded bolts, loose bolts, bolts that were WAY over tighten....the frame paint chips if a feather touches it...a mysterous coolent leak...I've pressure tested the system and it won't leak or drop pressure overnight but yet it you ride it hard and it sprayes coolent on the side of the bike...strange I know. It doesn't happen all the time so it's got me stumped. Guess what you call Kawasaki and tell them about these things and they say "Go F*ck yourself, it's been on the race track, we don't cover race bikes" If the bike didn't run so strong I'd sell it right now and by an R6...dissapointing after owning so many of these bikes..:(

www.kwcycle.com sucks, I should know I used to work there!

I'm sure The Wizz is faster than most of you, so he's got more right to piss and moan than anyone haha!

Maybe I'll see you at Gratten tomorrow, maybe I won't - one of the newer instructors (he'll remain nameless) owes me some $$$ but I doubt he'll have it by 17:00 tonight so I dunno if I'll go or not....

I have owned nothing but Kawi's and always loved them. I have had about a dozen Kawasaki dirt bikes and raced ALL of them, a 99' zx6r which has had a couple of track days and an 03 636 which kicks ass. So I guess it just sucks for you!:D

Hey Wizz, a lot of your gripes seem to be about loose bolts, overtightened bolts, and cross-threaded bolts. I am curious how many of these problems are related to dealer setup and prep and how many are factory-fit problems. What I'm getting at is, is it possible the Kawasaki ROCKS and your DEALER sucks ???

Trust me, the dealer he bought if from - the one I used to work at - didn't do SHIT to prep it. Basically all that's done is the bike is uncrated, eyeballed, has fuel put in it and taken for a three mile test ride. That's it.

Hey, Triker, your bike looks just like mine. Blue is badass. Anyway, this is the wrong board but since I saw the pic I thought I'd ask... was getting those flush mounts on pretty hard? Did you do the fairing work yourself or did you take it in a shop? Thanks.

Yeah wiz, my 03 636 is solid as a rock.. your dealer HAS to suck... when you get a bike.. it's in a crate, it's unpacked, some parts are put on, and all those 'daily checks' are checks.. they're supposed to check every bolt and hose on the bike. by any bike from that dealer.. and it'll be the same. SB knows whats up.

Deftones, you're in Bloomington eh? I've got a friend that goes to Weslyan. Her parents live near Pontiac so I might roll in there too. I'll probably be riding down there so if you wanna show me some of the local fast roads I'll give ya big ups for it!
