Yep, tight with grease, but overly zealous with loctite!  :oh_no:

My experience also.

Yes, I know what you mean about Kawasaki being tight with the grease, so I was fully prepared to replace my head bearings at 27000 miles but when dismantled they were still in perfect [greased] condition. Missing the potholes pays off! :028:

Welcome to the forum.

I got the 2016 too, great bike, eats the miles in comfort when touring, capable sports bike too (when suspension is upgraded and stage 1 tuned :007:
Yeah I've been using the Yamaha SR 125 my partner has all of last Autumn and into the Winter as i had a job in town, so used as a daily.

I love that little SR !

Enjoy the bike!

Less than 24000 miles and the head bearings were shot? Too many hard landing wheelies????? :164:

I would say 24000 miles on a set of head bearings is about normal for Kawasaki.

Partly it depends whether they got a decent greasing early in their life as I believe that they don't add any grease in the factory.  In my experience the second set always last longer than the first and that's because you do it yourself.
