Kawasaki has paint problems on all they're bikes. I have a black 06 ZX10 and a red ZX14, both have paint issues from day 1. Mostly blimishes and thin paint. I have bought ninja's way back to the original 900 ninja in 84. All these paint problems have surfaced in the last couple years. I dont know whats up with them. I wish they could get it right like the rest of the companies. :angry I've had Honda's, Suzuki's and Yamaha's the last few years and have seen zero issues with they're paint. Sorry to vent but it sucks when you drop that kind of money on a bike especially they're so called "Flagship Bike", the ZX-14 and they can't even get the paint right . :banghead
yeah thats what I've been reading thinking about going solar yellow instead of black its a little harder to see any inperfections in the pait plus the pearl looks nice in the sunn and its a little cheaper.....but damm the black look f*ckin killer decisions.... decisions got 2 days to decide:headscrat
Update: I heading to the dealer tomorrow about the paint on the nose section on the 14. I tried waxing all the blemishes out to no avail. I called the gm and he said bring it in. I cant live with it like it is.
GM of dealership looked at it today and said no problem. Should be in some time next week:grin A guy who bought a black one the same day is getting his tank replaced due to paint problems also. GM said Kawa knows about the paint issues and is taking it by a case by case.
