    KFX120 - My friend had a similar issue on his 250F. He had his dealer contact Kawasaki support and they replaced his shrouds free of charge. Seems they changed the manufacturing process on them, it's been a few months now and he hasn't had a problem since. If you can't get help from your dealer try contact Kawasaki directly for assistance. 949-460-5688. I've always had excellent luck with them.
  2. The "stay" only means that the manufacturers do not need to have certificates for the parts and vehicles in order to sell them. They still have to test each individual part to make sure it conforms to the 600ppm lead content limit before they can sell it. Unfortunately, that's going to take time.
  3. I +1 the suggestion to get a degree in Business. Reality with the engineering jobs is that you'd be better off moving to Japan and learning to speak Japanese. It's mostly sales and marketing stateside with the big 4. Find out what you like doing the most. Better to be happy with what your doing than to be able to tell your buddies you work for ABC Motors, U.S.A. All of the OEM's stateside are just like any other corporation. There are jobs ranging from the swapping out lightbulbs to the head honcho's who decide if the brochure will say "Bold New Graphics" or "Completely Redesigned for 2010". And move to Socal if you want to be in the industry. You could always hang out in the local watering holes around the corp office on Taco Tuesday's, just look for the guy wearing the obnoxiously bright BLUE, RED, YELLOW or GREEN clothing then buy them a drink. Always best to know someone.
  4. That's why I have a 2500HD diesel now. Now my problem is I want a bigger trailer.
  5. I have a 2003 20' Carson Fun Runner. Bought it from a friend a year ago, he bought it new. It's been pretty reliable. No major problems. I have the front kitchen model with the combined shower/head for more cargo space. I used to pull it with a 1/2 ton 2003 Chevy Suburban, which did fine for the most part. It struggled a bit on steep grades and loaded trailer but not too bad. The trailer has sway control and weight distributing hitch and I added Air Ride air bags in the back of the Sub which helped a lot. I now have a 3/4 ton Chevy Diesel that pulls it like it's not back there.
