Anyone else seen this, it's from the Z900RS UK owners Facebook group?

Thatís interesting. Iíve just gone through 4000 miles and I had in my head it was due a service. So I pulled up the owner manual online as Iíve not got my booklet to hand, and it does seem to support what you have found. Iím planning on ringing my dealer sometime this week.

Not got near to the 3800 miles, but the 6 months bit is in the middle of winter, so would have looked at delaying it.

Kawasaki seem to have realised that that check is pretty pointless, though the dealers might well have liked it for no other reason than they had you in their shop for an hour or so!

Looking at the maintenance schedule the 3800 Mike one in between the 7600 ones is basically check the evaporative thingie and look at the brake pads and check the brake light still comes on. How much does a dealer charge for this?

The 3,750m service checklist says:- Brake system (operation, fluid level, pad wear, hoses & light) / Chain & guide (inspect, lubricate & adjust) / Wheel & tyre (condition, wear, damage & pressure) inspect / Evaporative emission control system- inspect

Greenham Kawasaki didn't change the oil/filter & spark plug but did the above & everything else on the 7,500m service anyway - cost was £75  :305:

Reported to have come from Kawasaki UK, so Kawasaki Germany might not have signed up to it. Second poster said the on-line version agreed with it, but they're also in the UK.

Can you ask them to provide a picture of the full page or a link to the page ?
