A very capable old bike
The anti dive unit on the forks kept leaking out of the adjuster valve.
The rear caliper need regular checks carried out on it because of the seals leaking.
The seat are bad quality.
The expansion bottle splits very easily and are very hard to get, as Kawasaki don't make them anymore.
Very average handling.
Great acceration for a bike of this age - keeps up with many new bikes.
Good top end speed ie: 164mph on a speed gun, done on the track.
Would recommend to anyone.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
