No! But it is not the best thing to do if you fail to perform the required first service checks and adjustments, or did not keep good records of what was done.

If you can clearly demonstrate you did all the required service, kept good records, are qualified to work on the bike, and can produce receipts for the necessary oil and filters, etc., take your concern directly to Kawasaki. The dealer will assist you with the process of getting in touch with the corporate level folks.

If you cannot document the above, you will end up paying what we call a "stupid tax." No big deal, we all do it at some time or another and it is a learning experience.

I get all the business I want from guys that changed their oil but never did the required checks and adjustments, then lose their warranties. Usually they show up to see me after they suck a valve, burn a piston, or snap a cam chain because they failed to spring for a measly $300 on a many thousand dollar machine and are mad at Kawasaki for refusing to warranty the breakage.
