Got my new wheel

Well I went into my dealer here on the Gold Coast Qld Australia last Saturday to ask him about the recall. He hadnt heard anything about the recall and basically called me an idiot for believing everything i read on the internet

Well after a rather heated discussion where I explained that I've worked in IT for 15+ years and been on the "internet" in its various evoultionary forms for more years than I care to remember and that I can easily tell when something is bs or real.

To cut a long story short he finally rang me back on Wednesday and said yep its for real and he has entered my VIN and expects the wheel soon. Noting that in Australia there has only been 60 wheels allocated in the first batch. Well today i got a phone call from my dealer and yep my wheel was in.. Rushed down and its now ON!



So basically for me from finding out about the recal and getting a new wheel was 6 days!! My dealer bent over backwards to get me in his good books again so its all cool

mine's going on on Monday. The talk is the problem is a wobble. Has anyone heard what the issue is? I've certainly come across wabbles on it before.

Still in Jamaica. Heard reading about the recall.
I wasn't going to mention it previously (I told D), but I got into a vicious tank slapper July 16th on the freeway. Didn't think a whole lot about it at the time, though I've never had that happen before on any bike.
Definetly will check out the front wheel and take advantage of whatever recall info awaits me when I get home.
Wow. Never would have suspected that......

fish:
unfortunately my dealer lives and breathes through the Kawasaki extranet and thats about it. Not sure he knows how to navigate any further that that

rubber:
Unfortunately its not an M3 but merely a 330Ci with most of the M-tech options we can get over here. An M3 in Australia costs about $155,000AUD on the road once u put a sunroof and nice paint on it. Cant justify that kinda money on a car... atm..

I have some pics of the new wheel on the bike and to be honest it just looks the same as the old one. My host is not letting me uploaf them so if anyone wants to see them or is kind enough to host let me know.

I'll admit the bike is handling really nice but I'm wanting to ride it more before I say its the new front wheel and not all in my head

...hey, wasn't there some post a little while back of someone's friend of a friend's ZX-10R's wheel coming apart BEFORE all of this recall stuff began?...or was that deja vu all over again?

I remember there being a mention of a wheel breaking a month or so before the recall...

That was a rear wheel and the guy never showed any pictures.

It seemed like a BS post to me back then.
