I had an old seat from a Suzi gsxf (like an armchair for comfort) & cut & taped the foam on .I've seen prettier but 500 miles through France I didn't care about the looks .Try Digger seats in Newport Gwent if you've got the cash. Or buy a Harley !! :P

Mini Intro

 by patty
Hi. I'm Patty. I just moved to Seattle, Washington USA!!! I got my Ninja 250 in late ''07. I love it. I took the motorcycle class in Wisconsin and did not have to take anything, but the written test at the DMV. But now that I have moved to Washington, I wonder if they will make me test again??? None of you can help me because you all live across the big pond.

I love my little sport bike. I have been out on it three or four times since moving here in January. Too much snow in Wisconsin.

I always feel like wonder woman, when I gear up in all my leather. And the men go gaga, when I take my helmet off. Riding my bike makes me feel so good! I feel sexy, beautiful and alive.

I would like to get a little bigger bike. I'm all of 112 pounds and 5'5" and can barely push this little bike around. I'm thinking the 500. I love the sport bikes. Mine is so cute, but I can't keep up with the boys! And she really just doesn't have all the power a girl wants. I get the most pleasure screaming through the gears. Is that hard on a bike?

I've been on the back of motorcycles all my life, but the front is so much better. And Kawasaki's are reasonable and with all the racing knowledge behind them... I can't believe I waited so long to get a bike. I just always thought they were out of my price range. And I love the mpg. I get 65 mpg most of the time and sometimes 73 on the freeways.

I shipped my bike. That was the longest 10 days of my life. I was so afraid she would return to me damaged, but she's as cute as can be...

Forgive me... Sleepless in Seattle. Have a great day!

Patty :644

Hi everyone, new to the site but far from new to bikes. I've now reached a "Certain Age" having had bikes cotinuously since I was twenty. Had lots of British tack, one Bianchi, two Ducatis, three Laverdas and am about to take delivery of a ER6F. I have had two Kawasakis in the past, one was a KDX125 and the other a Used Z200 that cost me £180 !. This I purchased for a lengthy trip to France on the premise that if it broke down I'd chuck it in the ditch and thumb a lift home. In fact it went to France twice, northern Netherlands on a rally, two weeks around Scotland including the Isle of Skye, and used it for work for years, knocked up a phenomenal mileage. Roundabout 2000 it got really too horrible to ride, the local scrapyard wouldn't have it unless I delivered it so my angle grinder went through it and a trip to the tip sufficed, should've taken it to the Stafford show and placed a sign on it for £500, somebody would've bought it !. Looking forward to some good trips on the ER.
Regards to all.

Well I am beginning to wonder if I will have to go "restricted". I am riding on my US license, but must be tested and pass by June if I don't want to lose the privilege on riding on UK roads!

I have been working with an instructor, when my time permits. Great instructor. However i am trying to do the dam--d U turn on my 500! Extremely tough for me. I did it on his loaner 125cc - no trouble. but heck, this is driving me nuts and I will fail on the day at this rate! Test is in late march.

I got so tired today, trying time after time after time on various bikes that I dropped his (ouch)!

gpz500 alternator oil

 by kennyv50
:oop Hi to all at the owners club, have just brought my first "big" bike, ok only a 500, but its big for me. Started looking through the site, and it seems to be a bundle of infomation for some one like me.
I hope Im not alone, but my first input is to be asking for free info, I brought the bike as a non worker, no spark at the plug, possible cdi fault , the pre owner brought a 2nd hand cdi unit, but still no spark. Both units could of course be faulty. Ive started away from the unit ie junction box, main coils , pick up coil connections and caps. all at present, being guided by the Haynes manual, appear ok Two questions, 1 is it possible to check if the pickup coil is ok, other than ohms testing the unit, ie can one check to see the pulse being sent?, and two 2 when I took off the alternator cover a quart of oil came out. Is this normal, the bike was on its centre stand, or do I have an oil seal gone or has the bike been over filled?
If anyone can help with one or more answers, I would be very grateful.
Sorry one more question, is it possible to have the cdi units checked out at a kawa garage, and does anyone know a good garage near the Croydon area.
many thanks again
