My friends have had good fortune with Kawasakis.
Overtorqued bolts though can happen to any brand.
I do not want to list every screw ups found ..
One crankcase cover was taken off (don't know why?) and replaced with silicon sealer instead of new gasket.
Drain plugs.
Sender units (ST1100 I think?)
Some valve cover leaks,

My experience with Kawasakis is...: Yes, the vacuum lines leak; Yes, the fuel fittings leak; Yes, the light fixtures leak; Yes, the coolant O-rings leak; No, oil doesn't leak out anywhere.

I won't get into the electrical & mechanical problems that weren't leak related :-)
