I have heard that engines are easy to get. I have only one spare and its spoken for.
So if I sent you my bike, how much cash for a turn key bike?

I am getting lots of requests for this, and thanks for that. Its the largest compliment.

I will for right now be devoting my time to testing the bike. Seeing if I can break it.

Anyone with questions ,or needing help to do it themselves please keep asking.

It's ok Dave I feel the same way. I would love to have a bike that can do what my KLR can do and what my GS can do. I think this is the bike, absolutely freaking awesome!

I can't weld, but I can fab, wrench and have the garage for it.

Love your bike. Will be following this thread for further developments. Maybe I missed it but what forks and clamps are you running?

Great thing! And more than well done ... The world is watching you and takes notice. Hopefully, Kawasaki will do so, too!
Kind regards, Bambi

Awesome, Repsolrider! Much deserved.

Sure hope Kawi's product people read "Canadian Biker"...
