Are these covered under the Kawasaki warranty or are they considered common wear?

Yep. But be careful. The replacements are potted and cannot have the battery replaced. The old style can. Some have decided to keep the old style so they can replace the batt's. Me being one.

if you do the warranty the dealer has to turn in the old one per Kawasaki. I am in the process of getting my rear done soon.

It depends on the year of the bike. Not real sure of when the change was made though. My 09 has the old style of course. On the olds style the valve stem is completely round. New style has two flats for a wrench on the valve stem.

With the old style inquisitive Coggers have figured out how to replace the battery. The new style has the battery potted and no one to my knowledge has figured out how to change the battery. Yet.
