Question how to find out previous maintenance?

Hi All,

I bought a used 2007 Kawa EX500 from a local dealer. The bike did not come with an original owners manual, or any maintenance records. I found a manual online and also got a shop manual.

Approaching 6000 miles, I wonder if it possible to obtain maintenance records some way? Any ideas? Would Kawasaki have this information? I want to be sure the critical first maintenance was done, and last time typical oil change/filter etc was done. My title receipt does list the name and address of what could be the previous owner. Is this typical? I would hate to bug someone.

The bike is running great, no issues so far. I have combed thru it best I know.

Do you know or can you find out where the original owner had the maintenance performed?
Most shops will have a file on service work performed.

If they did it there will not be records. I have never had any of my bikes in a shop.
