Lack of grease on spline, etc
I believe that someone here posted that their dealer did regrease their splines as part of Warranaty svc because it is widely known that vn750'
of certain years did not receive anywhere near enough grease on the splines.
My dealer acknowledge that many Kawasaki's don't have enough grease on their splines, also acknowledged that he heard the coffee grinder sound (clutch slipping) but said it was minimal, said the smoke was from condensation burning off..(riders behind me can see the blue smoke)
The clutch slipping is a safety concern and Kawasaki should immediately take care of the problem, I read on the net that KAW has an upgrade to the clutch that solves the problem, dealer says he has never heard about it.
