New to the forum. Just got a new 08. Had to get it right home and ditch the tag bracket, reflectors, and stickers. I have a Hotbodies Growler want-a-b on the way( thanks to speedgsx9 for the 20 off code ). Also have the full spread of slide protection coming from Champindustries thanks to this site. Wish it wasn't 115 outside. Here's a couple before and after pics.

She's a fkn beaut man. Keep her clean and ride her hard. I think I'll sell my Gen1 one of these days and lay down some cash on an 08-09

Silky Smooth! almost wish I had gone with black when I got mine but can't go wrong with the Kawi Green I guess.

Thanks for the replies. Yes, she's a left behind. Can't for the life of me figure out why. These bikes rock. And to think, I was going to buy a CBR:lol:.

Great lookin bike and :welcome: Good choice on the 08, IMO the black 09 is not appealing. I too almost got black but green(faster) is better!!! :lol:

Yeah, I lust over the black from time to time. More manly than green. But I like my green too!

I'm glad you found my post on the hotbodies growler useful. You'll like it I think. If I had it to do over again, the pipe comes in two pieces that are slip fit together. I'd put the piece that attatches to the boom box in the freezer for a half hour or so to make it slide on easier. Make sure you get the slots/tabs for the exhaust spring lined up correctly as once I pushed the two pieces together, I don't think it's coming apart again. Fortunately, mine is lined up good, so no probs. It didn't come with instructions either, but it was quite self explanatory. I did use the washer from the back of the OEM exhaust mount and put it in between the mounting clamp on the rear footpeg mount to keep the clamp from being too tigh and cracking the carbon fiber potentially.

I have to ask, what did you pay for the bike? Assuming/hoping you got a good deal.
