Summary:

An awesome bike, that is worth what I paid for it

Faults:

Last year when riding, a loud clicking sound started to come from the motor when riding. When I stopped the bike, it would not start again. When I got it home I pulled the motor down, and discovered it needed a complete engine rebuild.

General Comments:

What an awesome machine.

The bike handles and goes awesome.

Summary:

Our first Kawasaki and you can bet not the last!!

Faults:

Piston due to racing.

Brakes on the rear quit for no reason, rebuilt them & works great since.

Throttle stuck 3 times. After a few hours on the cable, it's been fine.

General Comments:

We bought it at the track after the owner had a wild spill. He thought it was junk because he was very pro Yamaha.

This bike is very fast, & if the handling was a little better, it would perfect in the 125 class.
