Miss my 2002 ZZR1200; I hit the highest top speed of any bike I have ever owned on that bike.  Never forget I was racing a Bandit 1200 off the line, neck and neck until about 100 and then the ZZR just took off and left it getting smaller and smaller in the mirrors.

Sorry...not a current pic.  It was dark when I got home.  That pic is a month old...purchase date.  I'm in Zeeland, between Holland and Grand Rapids.  I still have snow, but not a ton.

Beautiful bike!  :bigok:

But from what I've read, the hard luggage options on the newer Ninja 650's are extremely limited because of the lack of mounting points. Some sort of a one-off bracket and the new generation of "formed" luggage (throwovers like soft bags, but made to hold their shape, unlike soft bags) might be your only option.

2012 Ninja 650, very comfortable mountain twisty bike! Added Two brothers racing exhaust & mapping systems. OEM rear cowling, fender eliminator with LED turn signals, SpeedMetal bar end mirrors. TechSpec Snakeskins on tank & rear cowling. 4.2 gallon tank and goes over 150 miles before I need to start looking for gas.

This is my first post on this forum, and here's my Little Red Ninja.  She's a 2007 and has three Iron Butt certificates (she did all the work, I was just along for the ride).  The pic is on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the quote was modified from a unicorn poster my niece has (she giggled when she saw this).  Apparently I need to work on sizing my pics, it shows larger when clicked on.

Welcome, Baxter. Nice set up on your Ninja.

Thanks.   The Old Girl has the usual touring mods: chain oiler,  heated grips,  taller windscreen in particular.   I've found adventure style drybags to be very versatile luggage.  While I occasionally think that ABS may be a good improvement for a new bike, and maybe even locking hardbags,  this might be my Goldilocks bike.

It would be (IMO) the perfect Kawasaki. :drool:

Agree.

IMO - Kawasaki makes the absolute best shaft drive system, bar none!
And really, at most about 20lbs. on a 500lb. motorcycle.

I'm not gonna say never, but if for some unknown reason I ever buy a chain drive motorcycle again, it'll have a single sided swing arm.
Title: Re: Show Me Your Kawasaki
Post by: Skee on September 23, 2019, 06:23:06 PM
IF a shaft only added 20 pounds I’d go for it.   Not being a mechanic or service tech, I have no idea how much one weighs.   Somehow I’d imagined it would add a whole lot more. 

For how long modern chains last, and how little maintenance they require, chain drive wasn’t a deal breaker either.

The 4 is smooth enough that adjustment is a very spaced thing. Mine didn't need adjusted ( first one ) till over 5 k and I was being anal as it was still in the top of the range at that point.I put it back in the middle and will see how it goes.

Put over 30,000mi. on my '06 ZX14, chain & sprockets showed very little wear.  However, I was anal about keeping them lubed. :thumbsup:

Automatic chain oilers seem to do the trick.  My Scottoiler makes travel easy, I just have to check the emitter tip for clogs periodically (happened once) and fill the oil resovoir about every 2000 miles.  I still clean the chain, but not very often.

I should get out and take some glamor shots with Ms. Noire.  I need to something good to blow up and hang in the garage.  Maybe Lambeau Field or the Fuel Café in the background?  Eventually planning to ride the Going to the Sun Road and revisiting Tail of the Dragon.

These will have to do so far.
