Well, I don't like to bad mouth dealers, and I've dealt with them for many years with no problems, I also think you'll probably get a similar response at most. However, if you were after a new Kawasaki in Newcastle, you'd probably come across them. The main thing is that I have committed to record the issue. If it happens to you, and the engineer says they never leave the factory with loose bearings, well... for all to see.

Interesting!  Had exactly the same problem and if it was Newcastle under Lyme, then they sold me mine with the same problem!

No, actually it was on Tyneside, but it's now clear it's not an isolated problem....

Oops, that's a bit worrying!
