I am suspecting that you wont have any response from Kawasaki for that issue but what I will do to mine is just oil treat it like we do to our vehicle for the winter here up north to prevent rust.

Have you tried a bore scope to get a look inside the frame tube ? Do you know if the frames are unpainted from new inside or are painted but yours has failed ?

Sounds like it would be worth spraying some GT 85 or WD 40 inside the frame , there are some small holes in the frame that you can get the small diameter tube inside the frame that comes with the GT 85 / WD 40 .
I would be interested to see your pictures .

If there is consistently rust coming out of the frame then i would presume that it hasnt been primed or painted inside,i havent had a look myself.I wont be spraying anything inside this needs to be fixed by kawasaki.

malh2 Evolution is pretty good. I was going to suggest if it was Peter Stevens to take it else where. If its any consolation it took me over 3months to get Kawasaki to fix my fuel pump on my zx10 05 bc it had rusted and that was still under warranty.

Is only ever been serviced at Evolution and I have no problems with Chris or his staff.
