Default Kawasaki Zxr 250 4 Cyl. 16 Valve

I always thought they should have brought in the 4 cylinder 16 valve 250 Ninja the Kawasaki Zxr 250-4.



It would have been the perfect update for the 2 cylinder 250 Ninja.



But Kawasaki USA is too cheap to update the little starter bike.

Heh, heh. You are a robot, ya know.



Perhaps you can tell me HOW he did it? Explain to me how the President "created" this great economic expansion, oh great Economics guru.



Forget it, I already know the answer to that one. That's why there are three different posts here. You obviously have no idea what you're taking about and are running around the Web trying to find all of your little factoids. If you were such an authority, you wouldn't need to.



I especially love "more to come." That's great. I can't imagine how anyone could be so oblivious to start another argument without actually having an [i]argument. You then have to interrupt yourself midstream and find more support for your "rationale." It's classic.



Classic lunacy.



The budget was balanced because the Republicans threatened to shut down the government.



If Clinton was successful in passing Hillary's national health care plan, it would have been much harder to balance the budget.



NAFTA. You should be against this, but, curiously, you never seem to mention it.



The Internet Explosion/Implosion. Almost everyone lost their asses on this, jobs were created and then destroyed. Investors stopped investing in tech afterwards. It had a negative effect almost everywhere in the economy.



You go ahead and keep believing this fantasy that the government will fix everything for you.

I owned a 1989 model ZXR 250 in Japan for two years. They sell for the same money as 400 or higher engine sizes over there. They were popular due to licensing laws and insurance costs, some of which have changed since 1998 when I came back. The 600 cc models are gaining popularity there now, as are larger motor models exported outside Japan and then brought back in and sold as export versions of Japanese bikes. The Japan market models are usually detuned a bit with different valve timing and horsepower output lowered a bit.



ZXR 250's are fast, light and fun. Mine had a red line of 19,000 rpm... It was a waste to go much beyond 16,000 though since it tailed off after 16,500. The parts were so light and the valve timing on that model so aggressive that it revved very quickly/freely and was a scream to drive. 250 cc, 45 hp, 345 pounds weight or so. It was my all time favorite bike and I have old/new Brit and Japanese stuff of various engine sizes...



It would go 135 with the race speedometer kit. With the normal speedometer it was speed limited to 112 mph, (180 kph) like all Japan home market models so for street use.

It is interesting to note that my post said nothing about Kerry or Bush. I mentioned Socialism and he started with his Clinton/Kerry defense anti Bush rant.



I wonder if the lunatic knows that after the Repub congress was elected in '94, from 1994-2000, not one piece of legislation introduced by the Clinton White House was ever signed into law. Not one! A six year shutout.



You can go ahead and join the ignore KP club. It makes him even crazier.

Yeah. But, you're stupid! And a right wing gun toting wacko!



And you watch Bill O'Reilly! (Though it was fun to watch Bill destroy that left wing loony from the NYT last weekend).



Kook's a Republican, but hates every Republican you can name except McInsane.



And Bush is stupid too. Though his SAT score was 1206 (1280 by today's dumbed down standards... dumbed down by the liberals who run the schools, but we don't want to discuss what the liberals have done to our educational system... 10 million children on ritalin and counting).



I wonder what Kook's SAT scores are? Or Kerry's? Or Algore's? Or Al Sharpton's? Or Michael Moore's?



I could be wrong though. I've been out of touch for a while. You see, Nixon ordered me to attack Cambodia......

Do your econ professors factor in how a massive terrorist attack affects the economy?



You wouldn't be so desparate to post your crap if you actually packed up your motorcycle and took that big trip you've been flapping about for years now. I know leaving King County is a big step but try a couple of 500 mile days and maybe you won't be such an a-hole when you get back.

You know, I swear I was going to mention that. Funny that the mention of "socialism" tripped his switch. Telling too.

Yeah but at least we can still wear tinted face shields and split lanes.
