2012 14 My $3.00 Fender Eliminator

Here she is. I got her 4 days ago I have a whopping 26 miles on her between work and the rain.
Tonight I put my $3.00 Fender Eliminator from lowes on and took off my front reflectors. While we was having a thunderstorm.

I traded in a red 06 14 for $9600 difference.
My first impression. It feels heavier and bigger but steers quicker. I havenít taken her past 5K rpm. But things start to happen around 4k rpm.

My 06 had a full muzzy, P/C, flies out, mid range velocity stacks, muzzy ignition adv, BMC filter. That bike was just scary. If it redlined at 6k rpm I wouldíve been happy. Lol

Iíve been ridding since 1988. My first street bike was a Gsxr 1100 I was 18. I look back on some of the things I did in my youth and wonder how I even made it to 42 lol.

I guess Monday Iím going to order a full muzzy with a round can(Iím still old school) Pcv, & muzzy fan blades. From my dealer for $1070. I like brocks pipes but damn the price.

Lol. After owning a 2000 Zx-12 for five years. Then buying a 05 zx-10. I said i would never own another race bike for the street. For me they are just too uncormfortable.

That would be nice. We are still getting allot of rain. My dealer just ordered my pipe,Pcv,fans blades,& block off plates from muzzy today. Least that will give me something too do when it's raining.
Have you done any thing too yourís yet?

Pazzo shorty levers on the way, throttlemiester is on, and removed reflectors, that's it, debating on what exhaust I want, I got to say I am very happy with what Kawasaki did on this bike.

So comfortable.

I sat on one at the dealership and was very impressed with the balance and how light such a huge bike feels...



Congrats on the new bike... with my 10r I can't imagine what even more power between the legs would be like.. I have my fill, but good luck to you

get bar risers, and use your legs more to support your weight.
