Already replaced the thermostat housing gasket, which apparently was leaking from new. Now my waterpump weep hole has a very slight oil drip. I'll fix it. This will be number 2 fix. One more and she's out the door! I know it's under warranty.....but....if you want it done right....do it yourself. LOL

I know a lot of the time it's just easier to fix things yourself. But I've gotten to where I take things back for even the smallest warranty issue. The reason I do that is because the manufacturers have no motivation to do it right the first time if the owners take care of things for them. When it goes back and the repairs cost them $$ they start paying closer attention.

I hear ya. Kawasaki is getting email concerning this from...

me. Unfortunately if I take it in it will sit in a linup to get repaired. No telling how long. I can actually ride the bike till the gaskets come in and do the fix in a couple of hours or so..ALOT easier to get to than the thermostat housing. The swelling of my hands is going down :)
