It will be the same as all those. My brother and I were sitting around drinking shlitz and laffing about all you stupid biches with you girl bikes. I said somebody that buys a 4 cylinder when Boss Hoss makes a 8 cylinder can't be too intelligint. We laffed and laffed for a real long time.



Anyway, you will all be happy to know that I got the wheelie bar back on the Hoss so I can really take off fast from lights down town since my woman gets real mad when she falls off the back even if I don't laff at her. Now all I have left is to fix the damn car port.

Actually that would be pretty cool, a new motor, monocoupe frame, it would be a great start for the new Connie.

Anyone have some real world experience with the monocoupe frame 12, and how it stands up to the real world abuse?

Since the original Conk was ZX-10 material, I would love to see an updated one off of this bike too. As long as it is still a shaftie. I need to have shaft or belt drive in a sport-tourer because of it's user friendliness and lack of maintenance. I'm sick of chains damnit. Oh yeah, I have a friend that just turned 22, and he's looking for a 'Wing. His Conk hurt his girlfriends a$$ too much or something. I think she's just a pansy or something.

Don't know on this one JB, the quick glimpse I had before they took it down kind of makes me think the Yamma, and Honda will have there hands full in the styling dept. Have to wait for the comparoes for the shake out by the rags, and MO.

Default Re: connie II chain drive

New chains are pretty well maintainance free anyway, just squirt 'em once a week.

If this one formed the basis for the Connie II and Kawasaki put an auto-oiler on it, it would be "almost" as maintainance free as a shaft except lighter and with no power loss, plus you could change the gearing if you wanted.

Replacing a chain and sprokets every 20K or so isn't that big a job

Agreed. A few years ago, the ZX-9R got everyone hot and bothered only to have their affections diverted to the Yamaha R1!

I'd hedge that the bike carries fuel under the seat. It would help explain the funky exhaust routing. It's going to look pretty homely if the Yamaha and Honda are sporting underseat exhausts. (bun toasting, aside). haha
