And presumably a Kawasaki dealership 'must do' inspection/service item to keep the Kawasaki warranty valid....................... :187:
Major service or once a year is usually considered adequate for dealer mandated services.

It is illegal here too. The legal warranty is not subject to conditions.

You guys should write your MPs.  That really is BS.  The warranty should cover material or mfr. defects.  Regular maintenance is just good sense but shouldn't have any impact on a mfr.'s warranty.

While I still think this "dealer brake check" is a rip off, it's clearly not about warranty - it is about Kawasaki's responsibility in case of an accident.

Hobzinho, your're wrong.
Service has an impact on warranty in US. Read the terms and conditions of your warranty. In EU it has an impact only on the commercial warranty, but not on the legal warranty.
This matter has already been discussed in the past and I do not want to repeat the discussion, but I think that well knowing our rights as customers is a matter of general interest and is important for our wallets.
In every country it is a good habit to read very well the terms and conditions of the warranty. In EU it is also important to know the law on which with all evidence not many are informed, also because the dealers - the main subjects of warranty obligations - are careful not to inform the clients correctly.
