Strip screws

Hi All,

I got my Versys about 20 days ago. So far, love this bike, already had over 700 miles on her.

The thing that really bug me is that I found 2 screws that are strip on the right side of the bike. One is the fairing screw right next to the headlight. Looks like someone in Japan, while trying to put the screw in, went half way, strip it and left it the way it is. The second one is the top screw that hold on to the plastic piece next to the radiator.

I went back to the dealer and they took care of them both times. They are also amaze Kawasaki did this.

Wondering if anyone else have this problem? I had many bikes before and this is the first time ever I encounter this.

Thanks.

I believe that while in the crate, the fairing and the radiator pieces were not installed at the factory. Look to you dealer for them fumble fingers.

Good to know. I can sleep better at night knowing the important screws are not stripped! Thanks!
