Nope, it won't. At least not with my dealer. I went in with my vin and an image on my phone with the lot number and tried to "get the ball rolling" and was told "sorry, we have to actually inspect the machine", which isn't due in until 31 March. The good news is after the "Official Inspection" they gave me the option to leave the bike there or keep riding it until the new part arrives.You should be able to send them a picture of the fuel pump #.
Saves both you & them wasted time.
Honestly, I wish that Kawasaki would just give me the new pump, I'll even pay the shipping, and I'll install it myself. I have trust issues with "stealership mechanics".I don’t have the same trust in my local stealerships as you do.
Would rather do all the work myself…if I can help it.
Big dicks and tornados 😂😅👌Great to see a little levity. I needed that. Thanks !!!So I brought my bike to the dealership and they looked and said my fuel pump does not need to be replaced. I asked if they were sure, and the tech said that MY KLR's parts are made of big dicks and tornados. Also Chuck Norris put my bike together so I'm good.
I thought about doing that too, as I have access to a free trailer. But I want to ride it there so the dealer can't try and pull a surprise "you gotta leave it here" stunt on me. I was supposed to bring it in for the photo shoot Friday or today (Sat). Dealer advises to hurry up, he believes there'll be a run on the pumps pretty soon, best to enable him to place the order now. But it's too damn cold now (40F-ish) to ride the all-expressway 70 mi round trip. Plus on weekends all the crazies are on the x-way doing their Steve McQueen impersonations. I'll be going in on Tues or Wed instead when it warms up some. Don't care if I miss the boat on the part arrival, my pump is fine so far...I'll take my chances on a possible delay. (wait, did I just jinx myself ?!)Trailer'd mine in to the dealer through the snow today...got one of them bad pumps. Dealer indicated replacements were still in stock for the moment.
I bet Woody's Wheel Works in Denver could have fixed that perfectly. Remember for next time.I really hope Kaw is geared up for the FP recall, parts-wise. A couple years ago I bent a rim on my Tracer 900. None were available in the U.S. at the time , and only 5 total in stock in Japan. Did I want my dealer to pin one down for me?...hells yeah! Paid for it immediately on the phone the day after I bent it....$375. Took the better part of three months for it to arrive from Japan. Hopefully we won't still be dealing with supply chain issues. First come, first served. Won't be surprised if they quickly exhaust whatever pumps are on hand, nor if there's a time gap between available batches of pumps. I know I aint wasting any time on this.
If I'd had my cataracts fixed sooner, maybe I would've seen the rock in the road in time to swerve! lol

Same here. LD7. Purchased August 6thMine is recalled, purchased September 21, but pump is LD7 as last 3 so guess i'm good for now.
I'd still get in there before spring/summer hits and you could be waiting weeks or months.The good thing is this, dealers can't hoard the pumps. Once a recall is issued the part is restricted to affected vehicles only, thus the need for the initial show-n-tell.
From what I've been told by my local dealer (Beaumont, TX) plenty of stock is available in all warehouses with a 5-7 day transit time once the order is placed. UPS is the carrier Kawi uses.I'd still get in there before spring/summer hits and you could be waiting weeks or months.
