Ah...your question is whether it covers a 2009. Can't answer that but a dealer can.

Great thread. I have had this same issue for the past year on my 4010. It is a 2010 model but has only 990 hrs. I have submitted a question online to the selling dealership as to its eligibility for free repair. I am hesitant to take any of my units (I have 3) to the local dealerships having nothing but bad repair experiences at both that are local to me (Austin TX area). Anyone have any suggestions as to where a Kawasaki product can be dependably serviced? I've thought about just buying the service manuals and taking the units to my local (very dependable) auto repair shop and let them work on them? I wish they were still building the 1998 mules (yes carburated) but VERY dependable. My old 'dependable', while small, is a real workhorse. And for those wondering why I'm not doing the repairs myself? Old age and agility have taken their toll.

I had same rough idle develop with my 2011 4010 with only 250 hours. Repeatedly cleaning the TB was a temporary and unreliable fix. Dealer fixed under extended service (two trips) , then it got rough again about 100 hours later. Like many I was fed up with the fuel injection design. Then I realized that cleaning the throttle body was treating the symptom and not the cause. Inspecting the TB revealed that there are only three things going into it, filtered air, fuel and vapors from the crankcase (EGR). Another forum suggested disconnecting the EGR completely, after the frustration I'd gone through it seem worth a try.
I cleaned TB again and disconnected/plugged EGR tube from the TB. Results were not immediate, but got progressively better and now runs great! 150 hours later it is still running smoothly. To "rhaus" i would say this is a very simplistic repair, 10 mm wrench, socket, carb cleaner and a shop towel to plug the holes. Truly a low skill, low effort repair. 20 minutes tops. (don't remove TB, just loosen it enough to access both ends. spray carb cleaner and wipe with towel or toothbrush)
Good luck.
