Keep reading the threads. Its an established fact that the stock Z axles are weak. Depending on when you bought yours (after the date the newer axles entered the production line for your quad) more than likely your dealer will inspect and contact Suzukasaki and get you a new one. It's admitted as well by the mfr.

Is there a serial number cutoff date or manufacturing date that you know of?

949-460-5688 for the kawasaki consumer line. have your VIN ready. I had the dealer call and they claimed it was not a defect in craftsmanship of the axle and could not find a reason for mis use. did suzuki officially recall it ? whats the deal.

define what is something that is misused ?

Funny, I told my dealership I jumped my Z and everything. He didn't care. I got it replaced twice, then I said enough is enough and bought a lonestar axle. I do have a stocker sitting in the corner of my garage, its supposed to be the harder material one too. I don't think I'll sell it yet, maybe next year when I'm totally trusting my lonestar axle.

I bent mine the first hour I was riding it. I also had one of the first ones in NC. I heard the first Suzukis had the bad axle and it is covered. I think the Kawis were all made with the stronger one to start so they might not cover it.

Bent Axles

I bent mine and told Suzuki that I poped the front end up over a wash out and hit hard but did not crash. It took 5 weeks to get a replacement in and on the bike but that was it.This was in October on my 2nd trip.
: :cry:
