Bad turn indicator stalks possible recall

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/ivoq/index.cfm#gen_info

This link was posted on another site. It is to the NHTSA, and it allows you to enter a formal complaint/report about your broken turn indicators. If enough are reported, there's a strong chance that Kawasaki will HAVE to issue a recall.
So far, I saw 26 individual reports under the heading "exterior lighting", and two under the heading "exterior lighting/turn signals". When I filed mine, I didn't see that particular heading... just the exterior lighting one.

PLEASE go to that web site and fill out a report... It takes maybe 5-10 minutes, and the only thing you should have available is the VIN number. I even saw some reports that listed "VIN number not available", so don't let it stop you if you don't have it at hand.... although I'm sure the data will have more appearance of validity if the VIN # is included.

This is our chance to push back...
