Its two separate recalls I believe. Sorry I wasn't more specific. I'm at work on posting from my phone. Just wanted to get the info out there.

For people with Canadian VINs, anyone know if there's a way to check short of calling the dealer? I can't find an equivalent recall checker on the Canadian Kawi site. :confused:

So whats up with ecu recall?I have power commander hooked up.Can we just remove and take to them?

I dont think it matters, personally I would remove the PC just for my own peace of mind but if they give you any shit about it, remind them the serial number of the ECU is the defective part that is in recall, a mod done to a defective ECU doesnt void its defectiveness

Yeah, true. I would hate to know what happens if you stall, and don`t squueze that clutch in quick enough.

I`ll call monday, and make a appt. I`ll just say there`s a ECU recall for my bike, and I`ve stalled a few times.

Just found out that Kawasaki has put a recall on ABS models and ECU replacements.

Everyone please check with

http://www.kawasaki.com/DefaultFrame.aspx?strContentURL=/SITE/VIVEHICLEINFORMATION/VICHOOSEVEHICLE.ASP

To see if your affected.

Thank you so much for this information. It is amazing how the riders that where constantly talking about their stalling issue was given different reasons to why our bikes were stalling. My dealer actually told me it is a new rider thing. In other words, a person who just started riding only experiences this issue because we are not use to the clutch, gears, etc. LOL
