  1. I could have made the exact same post with one exception. My dealer has finally admitted they have no idea when the steering parts will arrive. I feel that bit of information is the first and only piece of information I have been given that I can take to the bank.
  2. Let's make that a large grain of salt. Lol! I spoke with Kawasaki customer service today (April 30). They told me my dealer "should" receive parts in a couple of weeks.
  3. I was wondering if any of you have heard anything at all about the steering parts arriving anywhere. My dealer has no idea on when they might arrive.
  4. I can't speak for all of Illinois but I can say my dealer is currently open.
  5. Mine is the opposite. My dealer has the parts for the fire hazard but no parts for the steering.
  6. Trying to nail down a specific time line on this is about as easy as getting congress to pass a economic stimulus package.
  7. Today (March 23) my dealers service department told me they were "hoping" all necessary parts would arrive this week. They also said that the machines held up in the stop sale were the #1 priority for parts preference.
  8. As is mine. They told me their service department was considered an essential service. Of course, they sell and service automobiles as well.
  9. Thank you for the information. I know that I, and most likely others would appreciate it if you kept us posted on how this progresses for you.
  10. Does this mean those of us that made a stop sale deposit a few months back are now bottom feeders for parts availability?
  11. Unfortunately, my dealer just said (today) "several weeks". I agree with you wholeheartedly. I don't have any idea who to believe anymore.
  12. It should make for some interesting conversations for the service departments when people read to stop driving their machines and call the dealer to schedule a repair only to be told parts aren't available to fix them.
  13. I spoke with Kawasaki customer service earlier this evening. They told me they had all of the parts necessary to take care of Stop Sale #1 (Fire Harzard). Stop Sale #2 (Steering Issue) is a bit more long winded. COVID-19 is definitely playing a role in slowing things down. However, they have found a manufacturer in Taiwan who is going to start supplying the parts needed for the fix although not in the numbers they had hoped for. The first shipment is supposed to arrive the first week of April with weekly shipments coming in after that. Kawasaki is still trying to find a manufacturer here in the U.S. that can expedite the situation. It is anyone's guess which dealers will receive parts first.
  14. The only thing I can say is my dealer contacted me a couple of days ago. All he did was echo Kmrider's information which we already had. He did mention that Covid-19 could very easily stretch things out even more.
