Maybe we can get store credit toward an Ohlins shock. ;-)

Thanks for the heads-up. I stopped at my dealer's for a part the over the weekend and they let me know about it. They are watching for my VIN number and will let me know.

Mine started leaking at around 400 miles. Got tired of hearing the dealership give me ****, saying I was too hard in it or something, so I went aftermarket. YSS rear shock should be here in 2-3 days.

That's what I dislike about some dealers, often the guys going in to buy a bike know more than those selling it!

Independent shops are where I try to go, ones with a good reputation. Even dealers with a good reputation but that's harder.

I had gone in to my dealer before recall and they have been calling Kawasaki with no response. I called in today, since the official recall, and they entered my VIN in the system again and the recall for the rear shock came up. They now were able to easily order the replacement. If you call the dealer, who should already have your VIN, if they check it the recall should show up with the rear shock issue.

Couldn't you just have it done at nearest kawasaki dealer?
Probably... but I simply don't trust the dealers in this area. They're all big gigantic multi-line dealers and their arrogant attitude towards customers was my main motivation for avoiding them. The dealer I bought the bike from is a real small family owned + operated single line dealership out in the middle of nowhere and I totally trust the guys there. Besides, it gives me an excuse to take the day to enjoy myself and stop back by that barbecue joint I ate at when I first picked up the little Z. Crazy as it sounds, I'm actually looking forward to it!

I understand that. The ones near me have terrible attitudes and do terrible work with terrible reviews. I also bought mine from a smaller and further out of town place. But I only have a 30 minute drive luckily even then.
