1987 Kawasaki GPZ600R
For its age, it's the mutts nuts
Fork oil seals blowing / leaking regularly.
High carb maintenance.
Hates cold weather.
Gear selection when hot is hit and miss.
Keeps up with modern bikes.
16 inch wheels don't help cornering.
Rear wheel slide on braking is cool.
Rear suspension is no good for me when I have a pillion rider, but I weigh in at 17 stone, so I shouldn't really complain.
Good fun to ride though.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
