Quality built motorcycle


Since owning the Kawasaki 800 B Classic, I can say that there was not one problem in the 33000 miles I have owned it.

General Comments:

The Kawasaki 800 B Classic with some added options made my 800 B a real pleasure, and having an economic impact while driving at the same time.

The 800 B handles beautifully on mountain, city, and or just plain twisty roads.

With zero problems, regular service is all the 880 B requires, and I do change the oil every 3k, but in the TEXAS heat I've changed the oil twice, with one filter every 3k.

The seat should have been designed more for comfort vs. mass production.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
