The fines for speeding is high in Norway, so I want it to be correct. I don't think it will be perfect with 14/40 but hoping for some experience from someone? At least I will get better acceleration
With a 14/40 change your speedometer will be off even more. I went to a 16 tooth on the front and the speedometer is very close to being correct now.
If you want high performance, you have the wrong bike.

Thanks, but I know it will be more off. I just wanted to hear someones experience. And there is a difference in wanting more acceleration in special moments, then wanting high performance

It's called downshifting.

GoonerYoda,
That makes sense with the Norway tag.

So RiderFromNorway,
That is a nice looking W650 (2000?) with very reasonable modifications.

Thanks. I have now(after these pictures were taken) relocated the indicators (new neutral indicators) to its original position front, and moved the back ones to its position under the saddle. I am going to relocate the Lucas light closer to the saddle, remove the small reflex under the reg. plate and maybe chop the rear fender. I also need bar-end mirrors folding type. I ordered ace bars, but sold out. Maybe they can have them back in stock around eastern. Dime City have Clubman bars in black. Maybe I just order from US
I've had a general service on the engine and brakes. Had to change the hole sump because the plug was destroyed.

Anyone know how to check oil/spring in front shocks? Is there a spring inside the shock originally?

RiderFromNorway,
Fork oil change at http://www1.cncm.ne.jp/~yamaguti/W65...e(E).html#folk oil exchange

There is a Yahoo Group for the W650 at
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/W650ri...ec=group&slk=1
which has a files section with information on just about everything you can do to a W650.

Also http://kawasakiw650.co.uk/index.html
