Had the same problem with my Voyager. For some reason, if I let the bike sit for a few seconds after I turn the key on before I crank it, I don't have any issues. I normally turn the ignition switch on before I gear up and let it sit while I put my helmet, etc on. No issues as long as I wait a bit before cranking.

Since I ordered the cable online and it is Kawi part my dealer won't just replace it since it didn't come from them. They will order me a new one if I pay for it which I think is BS. It's long to late to return it from where I bought it. But being a Kawi dealer and a Kawi part I don't see why they just can't replace it.
so you expect your local dealer to go out of their way and possibly take a loss on an item you bought online?.....in the future if you want local support then by local!!!

So, here's what I did.

1) I took out the foam insert and cut it up on the bottom so that slot was larger than required. I noticed one of the edges of the slot was pushing up against the connector ever-so-slightly. I just cut the hell out out of the bottom of the foam.

2) When I stuck the foam insert into the slot, I resisted the impulse to push it down too hard. When I closed the lid there was a little bit of resistance - but hey, it's foam.

No problems since then.

Worm, so your saying if bought a bike at one Kawi dealership and go to another Kawi dealership for any work I shouldn't expect them to cover anything on it? I bought my bike at a dealership a 100 miles away because my local dealership didn't have any at the time I bought. Kawasaki is Kawaski it's a factory part what difference does it make to the dealer don't they just charge it back to Kawasaki if it's defective? I think should stand behind their stuff no matter where you buy it. I didn't realize a warranty was dealer specific.

I would personally expect if you purchased the cable from Vendor A and the bike from Vendor B and you think it's a problem with the cable, you'd simply send the cable back to Vendor A for replacement. Done.

Before you do any of that though, you might read this thread a little harder and see if it's actually an issue with the cable or not.

It is not as simple as "kawasaki is kawasaki" each store is owned and operated individualy, they are not a chain like walmart...when it come to the bike yes they will cover it because they will make some money on it... but dont expect to be on the top of their priorty list... as for an accessory that you bought online to save a cpl bux why should they... its not as simple as charging it back to kawasaki....they have to pay shipping on the item... and they also have to pay an employee to call kawi , get waranty approval, then pack up the item for shipping.... all at their expence .....you see that bit of profit they would have made on the item would pay for those expences but someone else made the profit on the item so let that someone else have the headaches......you see thats how it works ... support local buisness and they support you and the community...keep buying online and out of town and the local guy aint gonna be there when you need him... he will be closed out of buisness....
