new headlight under warranty
« on: November 08, 2018, 12:36:57 PM »
Hi all

I noticed some discolouration of my headlight lens the other day, it was invisible during the day but very clear to see when the lights were on.  Not sure if it's on the inside or the outside of the lens, I understand there's a UV coating on the outside but when you see it, it appears to be on the inside.  Anyway, Kawasaki are replacing the headlight under warranty after the following photos were submitted to them.  List price for a new light is a grand! (although it doesn't cost them that to replace of course)

Yeah I should have put the images side by side.  Like I said in the daylight you can't see it - I only noticed it the other day when I was working in the garage and the engine was running as I was checking my new heated grips install.  No problem with Kawasaki though they've just agreed to change the whole light unit.  This is what keeps me buying Kawasaki.
