Recall notice.

I was doing a little esearch on the nine and came across this.
In March 2008, Kawasaki issued a general recall notice (NHTSA Campaign ID: 08V114000) to certain VN900B owners for model years 2006 to 2008 for a fuel hose connector issue. The possibility of failure of this component existed, which could result in the fuel hose coming loose from the fuel injector pipe. This possible defect was also present in the many VN900D model produced in the same timeframe, as well as certain 2008 VN900C's. Per the notice, 31,789 units were potentially affected. Inspection and/or replacement of the affected component was to be conducted free of charge at authorized Kawasaki service centers.
Thought I'd share, regards-SH.

2009 VN900 Classic LT.
Nova Scotia, Canada.
Cobra luggage rack.
Kuryakyn Grand Tourer luggage bag.
Kuryakyn air filter cover.
170/80/15 Metzler rear tire.
Fire and Ice passenger floorboards.
Stage 2 debaffle (screens left intact).

There's a recall on the tank itself, too, for bikes in that same range.

I took mine to the local dealer, who was able to check the computer and determine that my bike had not been checked, and he unbolted the tank and looked underneath for the fuel hose problem, and at the numbers stamped in the tank. He determined that my bike had neither issue.

Whole process took about 45 minutes, and no charge.

You can also go to Kawasaki website to find info on recalls. Type in your VIN and it will tell you if anything is outstanding. Tried it myself a couple years ago to verify what the dealer had told me.

Try here:

I went with a Kawi bike, as I had great experiences with Kawi's responses to recall issues with JetSkis.

To me, they appear to be stand up guys !
