I bought my 10 year old GPX-250 a couple of months ago, but is now unfortunately in the shop waiting for parts (4 weeks from Kawasaki in Japan ). It had developed a major coolant leak. Although I appreciate I bought a bike that was older and cheaper, is this just down to bad luck or would the dealer have known this was a problem (I'm not mechanical :roll: )? If the salesman had pointed out that this bike wasn't relliable I would have coughed up to twice the cash for something else. Don't know if I feel ripped off, but dam after only a few weeks it seems mighty unfair. I'm hoping this will not be a regular occurance. While fortuantely I took out a 12 month warranty, I just hope this dealer was on the level. I thought about writing a letter to the dealer, but I don't want to rock the boat considering they have my bike and dosh. :?
