Thanks for the news. I have been concerned about the belt. Shortly after bringing it home I could smell a rubber smell and I have been taking it easy on it. I don't have 20 hrs on it yet and was waiting for the oil change to look at the belt. I guess there will be a line at the dealership.

I literally just walked out of a kawi dealership 5 minutes ago after purchasing a new belt. I asked them if they had any of the 40 part number belts.... They told me there was no such thing, asked them if they had had any problems with there customers blowing belts.... They said no this was the first one they had sold..... Asked if they had heard anything about a recall on them next month..... They said no they have heard of no issues what so ever with belts. When he pulled up the 39 belt number on his computer and rang me up to pay for it a message came up to call kawasaki and had a phone number on it ( probably the same number on the above pic). He said huh that's weird, iv never seen that before just before he promptly closed out the notification and charged me $149.55 for a new belt lol.

Did you blow the belt or just getting a spare? Sorry, but that dealer sounds shady lol

Blew it. Not that I would expect them to replace mine with the mods I have. I just find it strange that if they are really about to recall them that a kawi dealer has never even heard of a problem with them. And when you a part up and it tells you to call kawi and gives you a number to call (especially when a customer has just questioned you about the dependability of the part) you just close it out ignore it and go on about your business. If my tyrex had been stock I would have pushed the issue.

I called Kawasaki on the belt. They said to not sell the 39s. If there is a customer problem to call them until the recall goes out.

If they would have told me they could not sell me a belt, I would have thrown a fit!! Maybe it's a good thing they didn't call lol. No belt would have meant no riding this weekend and that just can't happen lol.

If a guy wants to buy it after I tell him. I would still sell it so he can do his thing. They seem to be working. Nitzge has it and is working fine. I would put it on to ride Til they get it taken care of. It sounds like it is more than a different belt coming. Some part changes as well it sounds like. Time will tell.

Hey Quad, do you know yet if they re sending out new primary clutches, or just the fixed sheave/shaft and movable sheave?

They wouldn't tell me. Have to wait for another failure or the recall to come out. Nitzge is the only one we have had in the shop for the 800. No other failures.

My local dealer said they have had quite a few of the belts go bad on the 800's.

This is the same dealer that told me they had never heard of a broken floorboard!

My dealer MR Motorcycle in Asheville, NC will probably "know" something about this about 6 months after EVERY OTHER DEALER does. Their service department is the worst I have ever used in my life and it is WAY worse now then ever. Great.... guess I will be running my current new 39 belt a while. I may call them and ask once I get the letter, record the call then call Kawi and be like WTF are these guys on or what is the deal with them?
