Well, I just picked up my C14 after being serviced. For those of you that have been following my adventures, I had a stuck rear caliper on my return trip from California to Colorado. Rode the last half of the trip with no rear brake.

I took all the parts that were removed in to my dealer and they ordered the parts last week. I drop off the bike Monday and the spent a lot of time working through the failure. Kawasaki did a great job of replacing parts. There were a bunch of cooked parts, Brake pad, Rotor, caliper. They went wild and replaced all sorts of stuff including the bearings for fear the heat might have affected them as well. I think the did a great job.

Cost - All under Warranty -- $0.00 cost to me. They even cleaned up the bike and put gas in it. Gotta love these guys!!

So far all I have noticed is that the plastic is buzzing somewhere up front, and the "glove box" can be hard to open. Good to know they are going to take care of us.

ICBM-While riding home today I pushed and pulled on different parts trying to find the buzz. Pushing lightly on the instrument panel seemed to do the trick. Give it a shot.

:scared I think the buzz is coming from the tipover sensor. There is a thread on this on the zx-14 forum about this problem. I did a search on the zx14ninja.com and came up with this thread. There are a bunch more on this topic on the site. http://www.zx14ninja.com/phpbb2/vie...=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=tipover. I wear earplugs so I do not hear it. Lee
Thanks Lee,

Good information on the tip-over sensor. Since you own both the ZX-14 and the C-14, is the tip-over sensor exactly the same and same location on both bikes?
