I just had mine replaced 09 under original warranty but as stated it may be up to your dealer going to bat for you.

When my dealer replaced the one on my 09 he told me that the battery had a 5 year warranty on it. I told him I have an extended warranty on the bike and he said it would be covered for the full 6 years. He did say once a unit is replaced and it fails again they have to call Kawasaki but it's just a formality.

I just went through the same thing with my '08 last month. Have the extended warranty(thanks MOB) and it covered not only the front sensor, which I why I took it in, but the rear sensor was replaced as well 'cause it was getting weak as well.  Very happy with the service manager/dealership.  I saw the amount of the repair order they were sending to Kawasaki, and the extended warranty already paid for itself.

The sensors should be covered for five years if the bike is under extended warranty. The manual says the batteries should last approximately five years so I guess it could be arguable if the bike is 4 3/4 years old.

Even though the extended warranty is good for six years, I doubt Kawasaki will cover a dead battery that they claimed would only last five years in the first place. That is just my opinion though so if they do cover them up to six years then great.

It is not the dealer who will underwrite replacing the sensors under warranty, it is Kawasaki.

Or, put another way, IT IS NOT THE DEALER WHO WILL UNDERWRITE REPLACING THE SENSORS UNDER WARRANTY, IT IS KAWASAKI!!

My dealer just replaced the '09's rear sensor, no questions asked.  Helps if it is the dealer you bought the bike from.
'09 Concours ABS, Candy Diamond Red
'08 Aprilia RSV1000R Factory, Red Lion
'05 GSXR600 (track bike)
'08 Suzuki S83 (selling)

I was gonna call my dealer... but after thinking about if for a while I opted for a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Much less painful. :o

Dealer replaced rear on my 08 in the summer and the front last week.  Unfortunately riding on Saturday in mid 50 degree temps started showing the low battery warning on the one they just replaced!
