So, I'm getting to know this new to me '07. What I am learning is that although there is only 5600 miles on this bike, that means it sat a lot. No real harm that I can tell, other than some stubborn fasteners. My guess would be that it was under cover, but not in a temp controlled environment.
So far , I've changed oil and filter, cleaned and re-oiled the air filter, changed out the coolant along with a Thermobob2 install, checked the front wheel bearings and axle, lubed all the cables, and changed out the rear brake fluid.
Which brings me to the "dag nabbit". The reservoir cap screws on the front brake are cute little buggers that maybe have never been out. One came out with a serious twist. The other one, the screwdriver slipped and rounded out the head...badly, after repeated attempts. I shot some PB Blaster to it, and it's sat for a while. Now it's time to attack. Any thoughts on getting that screw out without destroying parts? slot it with a dremel?.....a tiny easy-out? Also, a new reservoir cap after I mess this one up is a possibility. There is no Kawasaki dealer close........what's a good source for o.e.m. parts? Thanks, John
btw, if there's a thread on this, I apologize.
'07..The red and silver one. (they go faster)
