I have recently removed the fairings on my F model and have noticed that all the fasteners bolt right down on the paint leaving marks that show up if the screws are not tightened down to the same place every time. So I am at my local delaer today looking at Kawasakis and notice every screw on a painted surface has a nice plastic washer protecting the paint like it should. WHY Suzuki would not do this is beyond me. Especially on parts removed for frequent service. It just seems like anither way Suzuki cheaps out and falls below the other Japanese big three. Suzuki needs to wake up and smell the details. Rant off. Thanks for reading and opinions and comments welcome.
