I think I also posted briefly in the Start Up and Running thread but I'm hoping this warrants it's own thread.
I've had an issue with the bike starting up since I bought it in April.
I uploaded this vid in June showing the problem. This just shows once the bike had already tried to start. I got jack of it not starting as you will be able to tell.
I showed it to the Kawasaki dealer, then they looked at it at my first service. The problem continued to happen and they took the bike for one month starting it every now and then they said they can't replicate the issue. I took the bike home 4 days from then and it happened. And it's been happening on and off since. It doesn't matter if I ride it every day or leave it for a week. It will have an issue turning on.
I am going to take regular videos showing this because it's not right for a new bike. This video shows from today, I just walk up, turn it on, put it in to neutral, then attempt to start. The same issue happened yesterday morning and the other day.. etc. It's got 98 RON fuel in it, and sleeps outside. It's a warm climate here basically all year round.
I contacted my Kawasaki dealer who said to me that because they had the bike for one month and couldn't find the issue if I take it back to them then they will charge me to look at it. I find that pretty bad.
I have emailed Kawasaki Australia and waiting for their reply..
I also have another two issues with it. If I ride for about an hour and turn the bike off. I can go in to my house and hear what sounds like the fuel pump working, making noise. This can go on for about another hour. I also told my Kawasaki dealer who said to me, are you a mechanic? No. Well it's just the sound of the fuel leaking pressure or something.. It definitely sounds mechanical, like servos working, not gas escaping..
And finally, my back breaks have been squealing since the start also. I told them about it, they "deglazed" them by rubbing them together or something, but the issue continues. About 1 week after they "deglaze" them it starts squealing again. I asked them to replace them but they refuse, they have "deglazed" them about 3 times I think and they still squeal.
