Hmmm, I've got a hopped-up '81 KZ750 that puts out 74 hp at the rear-wheel on a Dynojet.



Pretty much set up like I suggested. Seems a lot faster than 74 hp though. Maybe it's all that mass in motion.

Generally that wisdom is true. But there are exceptions and those old Kwacker 2-valve inline 4s are about as tough a bunch of engines as you could find anywhere.

Midwest/southern softdrink - popularized in the seventies by Radar on MASH. Pretty crappy stuff, actually. Commonly know as bellywash in Mississippi.

Default Gas mileage?

Gabe,



Thanks for the review! How many miles did you go before you hit reserve?

I think Kawasaki has missed the point in that every new motorcycle has to do at least one thing well. Otherwise, the newby just buys a used bike for much less money. This bike offers little wind protection, buzzy engine, vestigal passenger perch, no storage, etc.

The few newbys who survive their first accident on such a powerful machine will never take the time to do all the maintenance. And a future newby will buy the bike as a used motorcycle from them when they see it rusting under a tarp next to the garage.

Wind protection is good, engine in street legal rpms is totally smooth, soft luggage is cheap. I have one, I know.

Given the nature of this bike, I think the 170 mph speedo is a bit much. I'd rather have something that I could read. I think 120 would be fine.
