As I was just reading something about a Kawasaki recall of the Versys & Ninja (March 17, some cases of people loosing their foot-pegs) and as I do not think Kawasaki Thailand would ever inform you about a recall (if they do recalls at all) .... I was wondering and tried to do a search with the VIN of my Versys. Weird because non of the VIN search engines I found seems to accept the VIN. The VIN starts with JKALE which would indicate that it is a Japanese Motorbike. Well it is but it is made in Thailand, right? With my old Yamaha I could do a search at the Yamaha (Japan) web-site and find the history of the bike (like engine# and frame# did belong to each other). With Kawasaki I can not find anything. Somebody knows how the check the Kawasaki VIN?
