Servicing question 2020 manual
on: July 29, 2021, 11:44:09 AM
I purchased my Z on May the 13 of last year, August 18 I got my first 600 mile service done and the bike had 560 miles. I now have 1700 miles and plan to get it serviced within the next week or so. Looking at the manual it shows 1 (0.6) 12 (7.6) 24 (15.2) and so on. I know this is yearly or whichever comes first regarding mileage. So Im assuming Im on track with warranty? Curious is this 7.6 km or miles? Seems like a aweful lot between changes. My dealer stated at my 600 mile service the valves would need to be checked during my next service but looking in my manual thats showing 24 (15.2). Im thinking the 12(7.6) is since my last 600 mile service in August of 2020? Confusing, can someone shed some light on this because Im baffled, night shift is getting to me... lol

 Do you have extended warranty?
Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

Service intervals are indeed 7600 MILES (or 12 months).
 When my bike was under warranty I was in a similar situation to you with 2500 miles at 12 months.
 The dealer told me that the oil change was optional and would not affect warranty as long as it was changed before 7600 next time. I had already changed it so declined the option.
 Valve clearance check at second service is complete nonsense.
Thanks, There was a new service guy at Redline at my 600 mile service...yes, I opted for the 3 extended year warranty so o figured Id let them service it until the warranty is up, Ive seen some confusion in the past with friends doing their own service and even keeping their receipts, a peace of mind I suppose . I dont mind paying because I get a slight break knowing most of the staff and its cool hanging out at the beach. Im wondering if I need to stick with the standard Kawasaki oil or have them put synthetic in, I never had any issues with conventional oil on my past bikes

 Kawasaki oil spec is JASO MA or MA1 or MA2. API SG to SN. Any mineral, semi or full synthetic oil meeting those standards is warranty safe.
 You are over 12 months since you took ownership but less than 12 months since it last (600 mile) service. Is that your dilemma?
 I can't give you an answer on that.  :034:

Looking at the manual the 1, 12, 24...is X1000 in km, the .6, 7.6, 15.2 is X1000 in miles. The way the manual layout is I was thinking the km was years.

Makes sense. On that basis your extended warranty will have expired before you next need a service. 😁

Lol yep, the dealer finally called back and said I was good as far as warranty, they recommend yearly even if the miles arent met which I totally agree with
