    Heat shroud takes most of the heat! But........on really warm days in traffic it will give your leg a exhaust tan!

    I owned the vastly more powerful KE-125 back in the 90's. Doesnt look like they have changed them much other than a square tailight and the tank is a bit different.
    I would guess they are no longer sold here in the states because of the evil polluting two stroke motor but Kawasaki may still sell them in other markets?

    Drum brakes, I bet a lot of younger riders have never heard of them.:huh

    This gal was 750 (checked receipts again) and I put some cash into CDI box, air filter, a set of plugs, oil filter, and a VRR. She also included the fairing shown elsewhere on my photobucket page, as well as the sissy bar and luggage rack. I did get a set of soft saddle bags and a touring rucksack set for her. I only need bag supports now (they are rubbing on the shocks).

    This is the other side, and the fairing...

    Greg and Mtl-Marc, thanks to both of you for the leg up! I have not figured how to get my photobucket images onto the thread yet, other than just sending a link. Do I HAVE TO load them to a pay site to make them show here?

    Mtl-Mark, that is one sweet cafe conversion you have there! I will keep you in mind, because I have been dealing with some minor issues that may require some parts. The seat I have is in very good shape at the moment, but who knows what I am going to find underneath it. I have already been wiring, tightening, oiling, greasing, etc., all sorts of things on the bike. Every now and then I run into a problem and have to dig more pennies out of the couch... Then my wife shows me the bills, and I give them to her...:deal

    By the way, where did you find that fuel tank? I would like to locate one that will bolt up to my bike that is larger than 3 gallons and change. A closer to 5 gallon tank would be nice...??
