Bout time. Let's see what happens. I'm hoping when I pickup my bike on Thursday, I don't have these issues.

"The agency says 18 complaints" ...really? 18 complaints? I've never had it happen to me but I know it's happened to quite a few people on the site.

Sad that not everyone takes the time to file a complaint. Posting on a forum =/= contacting NHTSA. However, the article does mention complaints and other information (so they may have found this forum lol).

How to we file a complaint to the NHTSA? Through the dealer or directly?

The information is in the back of your owners manual.

Actually, they did!

Here's the actual report from the NHTSA: http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/acms/cs...13023-2491.PDF (PDF warning)

Note that it says...

Complaints: 18
Other*: 1

*Description of Other: Postings at www.kawasakininja300.com

Summary:
Owner complaints, forum postings, and EWR field report data indicate the subject motorcycle engines are stalling
when the operator reduces throttle input (e.g., slowing for stopped traffic). No root cause is known.
Awesome!
