Recall Notice

Yo all,

I just recieved a recall notice from Kawasaki. "KLR 650 Muffler mount bolts torque".

WOW Kawasaki does not want our mufflers falling off on the freeway. I guess we should check those bolts, but please... LEAVE THE DOOHICKEY ALONE!

Anyone else recieve this notice?

Do check the torque on the bolts though...

Take care,

MB4

Yep I got one too for my '05. I guess it's a worth while recall for those that had their mufflers fall off. Can you imagine a recall or the doo? $$$

I wander if they will replace my muffler if I tell them my muffler fell off on the hwy? or will they just give me a couple bolts?

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

I'm not the original owner of my 02' model and I feel left out for not getting a notice..

At 12K miles, I'm guessing my muffler's OK for now..

Don't feel too left out.
