Got the new race bike home (GEN5)

I would like to give a huge thanks to my buddy Nick Palmer at Big St Charles Motorsports for the support not only from Big St Charles, but the big help from Kawasaki themselves! I would also like to thank Eric Vallarta at Velocity Calibrations for shooting my bike on his magic geometry machine and coming up with some secret improvements that can be made. Can't wait to ride it!









Bunch more pics here:

I'll also use this thread as my build thread.

Here's what we got. This is off the showroom floor without any changes.

They are pretty nice lookin in person. As most people have already commented, front end is pretty stout. It'll be interesting to hear feedback.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Very nice. I'm curious to hear your thoughts on the new bike after you've flogged it at the track a bit.
