    Service light at 1000 km

    Can you confirm that to turn off the service light for the first 1000 km, it is absolutely necessary to go to an official kawasaki dealer? Or there are other systems to make it turn off, thanks. I only remember for the first 1000km.

    There are two service mods. One is from dealership, that one you can't turn off by yourself. Then you have the rider service indicator, which you can set yourself to remind you in case you opt for a different interval of kms or time. That one you can turn off.

    Hmmm, must be different here in Canada.  No lights that I could not turn off.  I have never been to the local dealer, and never will.  Evil forces from Milwaulkee have taken over our local dealership...  Used to be a nice place; now they sneer at you. :190: :190: :190:

    No lights I can't turn off on the USA model that I'm seeing either. My last bike was a 2009 ZX6R and the last of the 'dumb' bikes really.

    I just did my 600 mile (1000km) service yesterday in my home shop. Because the first service is almost 100% visual inspection. Read through the manual. It's an oil change and a bunch of checking of things. Not sure what they're charging at your local shop for this but at my local shops (and any I've worked at in the past) it's outrageous. Price of oil and a filter is about all I want to spend. Not into spending $120 extra for a 24 year old "technician" to look at stuff I could clearly see myself.

    I did not see any lights on my dash telling me it was time for the service. I just did it at 596 miles. Went for 120 mile ride yesterday with no lights coming on.

    Weird.  :027:

    Hello everyone, I finally managed to find a good person who reset the service light for free. Here they charge no less than 250 for the first service, they're crazy.

    There are two options, but my dealer said they never program their dealer programmed service lights on the bikes they sell, they leave that up to the customer.
