Got all my work done and took the bike out today for a precheck before I put it through the paces hard tomorrow for the day. Got the TST integrated tail, fender eliminator, Nexus side markers, mirror block offs, Zero Gravity Marc 1 screen, double wideband install so I can now monitor and data log individual cylinder AFR and combined AFR. Just need to clean her up, clean and check the chain tomorrow then I'm off for a few hours drive out to Tortilla Flats tomorrow. Checking initial data logs, quite a huge change from Norton stacks and Norton Ram Air install. Will be good to get more data and compensate for at speed.Was last night...
Took out on the road today and she feels GOOD.
- Replaced Oil pump gear
- Replaced OEM clutch with Barnett OEM beefier clutch pack
- Installed HD clutch springs
- Installed Spears shift kit
- Installed Evolution Technology radiator guard
- Assembled and installed Kawi OEM shift cowl
- Installed RG hanger and blanking plate removing the passenger pegs/seat
- Installed new clutch cover and gasket
- Applied new liquid gasket maker
- Adjusted clutch adjustments
Waiting on the relay kit for the auxiliary 12V accessory so I can run my second wideband kit in cylinder 2. Have to make a daisy chain harness to run both data loggers. Will then do some extensive data logging of both cylinders along with dragg data.
Will then fit the Norton Ram Air and V Stack kit. Repeat the process and see how the fueling is impacted.
Then by the end of the week hopefully install my TST Industries care package and enjoy Sunday riding and dialing in the tune by cylinder for all the recent changes.
Sorry to see ya go. I had a Ninja 650R before my Ninja 400. The forum I used to be on is part of this one: RiderForums.com - Kawasaki Motorcycle ForumSold it. 😕 New owner can't ride yet so she got left in a storage unit for now. Moving up to the 650, want something a bit bigger and a little more power. Was a fun 6 months learning to ride and this place has been amazing. Wish there was a good 650 forum out there like this place. Will definitely check in once in a while I'm sure.

Looks fantastic! No more sliding into the tank. Price is way to steep for me though.Excited to see how this feels. Included invoice as the ordering options with Corbin can be overwhelming. Love the design. Took 10 days from online order to delivery.

Amen to the road 6! Love those tires! Got my Corbin seat on as well. Feels like a leather couch!Broke her out of her hybernation early due to an 80* day here. At 03:30 it was a tad cold but the ride home was amazing. As for the bike.....15w fork oil rocks. gsxr rear shock rocks. The road 6 tires....rock....like really really good. (still breaking them in obviously). The Barnett clutch grabs hard... the removed smaller inlet snorkels makes the bike sound like a hog when downshifting. The valve adjustments i really dont notice. The steering head bearings....also dont notice. All in all the winter maintenance and mods were a hit. 10/10 would do again and recommend. Look good Last long time.
Swapping to the "oem" Akrapovic slip on soon, but it's still pretty huge though lol.That white and black is stunning. Just ditch the huge stock exhaust now.
white bike is looking really good. what static balancer is that? it looks sturdy. you like it?Went out to the garage today and found that my wheel weights fell off. The tech at CycleGear probably didnt care to properly clean with alcohol when applying the weights.
Fortunately had some new weights so rebalanced myself with the trusty static balancer. Added some duct tape so they're not coming off this time.
