Thought I'd give an update.
I talked to a guy named Rick today at Kawasaki's US distrib.
First question I asked is if CA models will come with the kleen Air system. The answer was yes, they will. That sucks, because now I gotta buy tubing, etc to remove that lame fucking smog shit. But it made a world of difference on my 636, so im praying the process will be similar.
Next question was about delivery date: He said that as of right now there should be the bulk of the first shipment delivered to the corperate by the first few days of feburary. After inspecting each, the dealers should obtain there first shipments roughly around Feb 14th.
Just two more weeks if thats true. Can't wait.
