- Apr 7 2009, 09:02 PMI 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 !!

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!

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)!

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
