Crappy Cover Warranty Info

Ok, I know some of you have dealt with this. My clutch cover already looks like crap. I guess the sticker isn't heat resistant. I asked my dealer about it and the two guys just kinda stared at each other. Does anyone happen to have anything in writing saying the covers are warranty items? They're only 20 bucks a piece but it's kinda crazy they're discoloring on a 6 month old bike.

My dealer replaced the right side air cover insert on mine when I complained about the finish coming off at about 6000 miles, no questions asked. The insert peels off easily and the new has sticky tape on the back. Did you buy the bike there? If you did, you wouldn't think they would think twice about keeping the customer happy....

on second thought, I think it was my clutch cover they replaced the insert to. the new one is already showing 'spider web' like tracks in the finish already (@9000mi). the air covers show some finish deterioration around the edges too. Anyone know of a place to buy derby covers or anything to cover what Kawi has put on?

Yeah, I bought the bike there. I don't know what their deal is. They used to be great, but just kinda tapdanced around the issue. Seems like the worse the bike market gets the less and less dealers care.

I'm thinking about dealing with what's there until I can have something made. I'd almost rather not deal with warranty crap and just get something that fixes the problem.

Either ask the dealer or go straight to Kawasaki and ask for a copy of the full/complete warranty policy.

Your bike has a 36 month warranty. The dealer has to replace the covers under warranty. I'm on my second set of replacement covers.

The dealer has to replace those parts in warranty only if those parts are included in the 36 month warranty.
