Added a power supply for the phone over the weekend.  Wasn't too bad, but man the leads there for the +/- wires are NOT lengthy like they were in my last bike ('19 ninja 650)

Definitely took some finesse to get them pulled out and useable, but overall wasn't too much of a chore, and will be nice to have some phone charging for music/maps on the longer rides.

It's not mounted to anything yet, just kind of tucked in there, but is secure enough for now that I'm not worried about it.  Will look for some way to mount it eventually, but hitting the mountains again soon for an "it's Fall and the leaves are turning" ride, so I just wanted something to keep the tunes going

Winter will soon be upon me here, so I'll look to figure out a more permanent mount during the downtime

Are you taking into account the crowning of the road for drainage? Your post reminds me of an old joke: The patient says, "Doctor, it hurts when I do this." "Then don't do that!"

Modifications, Accessories, and Appearance / 105 db full system info….

Anyone fitted a relatively quiet full de-cat exhaust?

Noise limits on track days are around 105 / 106 db here in the UK. Euro 5 is 96dbs I believe, or that’s what the Akro Performance kit can says on it.

Anyone interested in this Garmin give me a shout. I’ll be heading to eBay / Gumtree this week if no body from the forum wants an early Christmas present.

Kawasaki's frame sliders are different between Gen 1 + 2 but why would you buy them at the astronomical price they sell for anyways??  :027:

Agreed. I wonder if the parts are different because the frame was strengthened/ stiffened between G1 & G2 and the mounting points changed slightly?

Question PJ, did you keep your Versys 1k or get rid of it for the Z9 ? I absolutely am loving the Versys and definitely the right bike for me at this point in time.

Thank you
Ray

No, I chopped it in after “accidentally” going to a Kawasaki Demo Day in mid July at our local dealership.

Impulse decision, I sent a photo to She Who Must be Obeyed and got the go ahead, she liked the colour (typical) so I went for it.

I loved the big V too.

Today I stripped it down for end of Summer deep clean and prep for suspension upgrades, brake lines and pads.

Now it really is Super Nekkid.

You would think they would do away with the steel portions of the line altogether. Plus those steel portions turn back into rubber lines at the pump, so what good is it if you leave those small sections. It is the lamest jacked up design.
Complete pictures do not exist and if you ask the guy selling the lines he won't have a clue. I gave up on it.

I’d have to agree. I’ve ordered some and drained the front end ready to fit them. They come as a set of 6. I’m assuming 3 for the front and a full 3 for the rear, replacing the alloy block junctions. I won’t fit the rears anyway, most likely.
