This is your loss, a bike like this or an FZ1, ZRX, Bandit, Speed Triple, etc.. under a competant rider will spank the britches off most sportbikes on the street and be more comfortable than most cruisers in the long run. and alot more suited for day to day errand running and so on

Still you are a Great Prophet. Who am I, a mere pagan infidel to argue.

The GPZ engine is completely different from the boat-anchor I have in the KZ. They used the GPZ cases for the Turbo 750, too. Different clutch actuation module, lower end, tranny bearings, shift forks, etc.



Yeah, I remember the early 80's Japanese bike glut too. I got a new '83 XL600S for $1,800.00 out the door in 1984. Glendale Honda. Then the goons at GH forgot to put an air cleaner in it, and I got an un-limited warranty on the bike, from Honda, after finding an empty airbox after a big desert weekend. Didn't even hurt the mighty Honda.

I was thinking more of the theme music from "The Treasure of the Sierria Madre" when Dobbs and Curtian are following Walter Houston up that dusty trail.



360, 180 & 270 degree vertical twins are exempt. This does not include Dream Cycles, however.



Yes, technology lurches on, in some cases.

Your ever ride a pedal bike with rim brakes in mud or rain? Say good-bye to your braking power. I would be VERY suspect if a mfr ever caame out with this setup. There's a reason serious mountainbikers use disc brakes despite the weight gain.

They already do - it's called the Speed Four. Lighter, faster, but also smaller. Go check it out...

Actually I wasn't knocking Ksaki for it. I like the treatment. I wish there were more nakeds in that mtif.
