Kawasaki Ninja Owners Manual: What Am I Responsible For?

Kawasaki Ninja Owners Manual / Your warranty/owner satisfaction / What Am I Responsible For?

You are responsible for maintaining your vehicle according to the maintenance schedule shown in this owner’s manual.

You are responsible for notifying your dealer immediately if there is a problem, and you, as the owner, will need to authorize the dealer to inspect the unit.

You will be responsible for paying for routine maintenance, including the first scheduled service. You can have the required servicing done by your Kawasaki dealer (recommended) or an equally-qualified service facility. You can also do your own maintenance work if you have the proper tools, service references, and mechanical skills. However, if a failure is found to be caused by improper servicing, it would not be covered by the limited warranty.

You may purchase a Kawasaki Service Manual and any necessary special tools directly from your Kawasaki dealer.

You will be responsible for paying for repairs needed because of an accident, to replace worn parts such as tires, chains, brakes, and for repairs needed because of a lack of maintenance, misuse or racing.

Whether you do it yourself or take your vehicle to a Kawasaki dealer, be sure to record your service in the Maintenance Record section of this Owner’s Manual.

Keep all receipts for the service and/or items necessary to perform themaintenance so that in the event of a failure you can document the service history.
