Perhaps they have the mistaken idea that ignoring the problem will make it go away. Taking a leaf out of our ignorant head of state's book. Bunch of twits!

Odd comment that from Uni. I did not receive a prefilter in the pack I ordered from Uni from my 2014. Only the main filter and the two socks.

Nothing like proper tools to do necessary repairs.

Especially the large hammer! Perhaps that's for customers whining about the repair bill.

What about a machined stainless sleeve insert to true the bore back to std. Many brake refurb companies do that type of work to calipers and master cylinders.

Mid nineties zx6, zx6r and the early nineties Zephyr 550 and 750 had those rotors.
Motor was quite similar to the zzr1100. Great tourer with the kawasaki panniers. Did many rally miles on one!

If its the same as the /5and /6 models make sure the mech heats up the hub prior to pressing the old bearings out. If he does not your hub will be damaged and it is not easy to repair.
