Hey gang! Anybody have any information on the recall of the 03 VN1500-E6 with the accelerator pump diaphragm problem? I ran across this article somewhere on one Kawasaki website,but i can't find it again to save my sole!!!But i know i saw it somewhere.It also listed the E7-1500 plus the 800 Vulcan of some kind! I know about the oil filter recall,but this recall is about a fire hazzard in referance to this diaphragm may leak gas or something! The recall number is 04V008 with the National Hyw.Traffic Safty Assoc. and it gave the phone #949-770-0400 to call Kawasaki customer service. But i wanted to see if any of you guys might know a little more about this deal,before i gave them a call!! Because my bike is this VN1500-E6 and you know i want it fixed if need be!!!! See,i am the second owner of this bike so i don't know if its been taken care of or not! Have a good day Gang,Kenny in North Carolina...... Oh,Hey there Whistle Clean...

I just checked on the Kawasaki website to see if my bike had this recall and it said it does not....so I guess mine is not among the 2,082 bikes affected.

My bike was on the recall list for the oil filter fix and that was fixed at the dealer.
