The recall is another ground that you remove from the wiring harness on the carb heaters. You by pass the orginal wiring harness and have a seperate ground wire that you ground to the engine instead of the wiring harness. It took me five minutes to install. I also made sure of my other grounds like the one near the battery box. I made sure there was no paint where the ground wire connects to the frame.

Are there instructions on how to do this? I called dealer....they are backlogged with service issues. I don't want to go through the pita procees of taking to the dealer. They wouldn't give me the part, said a tech had to do it.

ground wire recall(do it yourself?)

My dealer told me that since I have doors, seats and harnesses, they may need to charge me for extra labor to fix the ground wire recall. They had to order the part, so I haven't taken it down yet. Are there any instructions that come with the part so I could do it myself? It sounds simple. Do you think they will they give me the part for free?

What's the part....a wire? I've asked that same question before, since I don't want to waste my time with the dealer, but never got an answer.

Someone who has had the mod done by the dealer, can you take a picture of what they did and post here?

Well I got 160 hours on mine and still haven't done it. I refuse to take my Teryx in to the dealer to let it sit for 2-3 days until they can get to it....to probably do no more than install a wire.

Somebody...anybody...tell me what the recall does....install a ground wire? Pictures?

carb heater strap

It takes 10 minutes to change, you dont have to bring it to the dealer. just pick up the part and do it yourself. there is also a recall for the roof, ask your dealer to give you the new straps for the roof recall also. this takes less than 10 minutes to do.

I have had my recall for months and couldn't find out anything. Can anyone take some pics of how they fixed it. So can I just add a ground wire from the engine to the carb heater? I have called 3 dealers that will not give me the part. I do all my own work. You don't want the dealers we have to air your tires up.

Local dealer told me yesterday there is a recal on the T4 already as well. Something with the fuel system. Not sure of the details but they were waiting for a part to put them on the sales floor.

Not to beat a dead horse, any info how Kawasaki plans to appease all of us who now own a door stop, 14K door stop.
I know Crap Happens as we should all know, but our dealer states no info about fixes and just leave it parked until further notice!!!!!!!!
