I this bike new 4 years ago a Kawasaki dealer for just £4000 OTR with 0% APR finance 3 years with a £99 deposit.

I covered about 15000 so far, most of them I lived in Southern Spain and done a couple of track

I was 30 years old when I bought the and was a little disappointed to find the insurance was £229 fully when the bikes I had owned such as my ZX12R and a brand new 749 had only been around the mark in my 20’s. At 34 the insurance is £200 which is about the as quotes I got for Fieblades and R6’s so is nothing to save on that of things anymore.

Fuel economy averages 60mpg on the road with riding, on a track day I can start a full tank and still fuel left at the end of the day. over 200 miles is average tank refils. Fuel vs general performance is the best of any I have owned so far.

Oil are recommended every 8000 in the manual but I usually do them 4000. I had a new air filter at about miles as the performance and fuel had started to drop off, restored them. Tyres last ages and you can run pretty what you like as the engine stress them too much.

a twin grip is pretty in the wet compared to a four. The chain has known to go as many as 3000 without adjustment which is considering I like to pop the odd wheelie or I still haven’t worn out the brake pads.

Out of the box the handling was pretty rubbish, due to the crappy Dunlop tyres it came with. The biggest was lack of front end grip. the yokes down as far as the tappering 25mm) and fitting some handlebars which put more weight over the front helped but didn’t cure the

The damping on the front fork was up to max straight away which was right although when I do change the fork oil I will go thicker for a little more I can’t remember what I did the pre load. The rear shock was too so I dropped the pre load to the 2nd softest (I go up one for the track).

The damping is on the second or third setting and the shock is still working pretty good.

pressures I run are 32psi front and 34 during summer, dropping to 29 and 30 rear for winter. The best for grip so far are Dunlop D207RR’s and did at least 6000 miles in and a trackday. The front is still in not bad considering they were from a track bike on

The Michelin Pilot Road 2ct was good in this country but on spanish roads. It was also good at Malary Park but has a little more slippery on the since. Tyres do go off after run on a track but it isn’t usually to notice on the road.

As a general bike I can’t it, it will grind the footpegs on a sip fuel as the finest wine on a commute, tour and carry comfortably while still handy on those dirt in the spanish mountains.

I am 5′ 6 and have no problem with the height, it is actually lower my ZX10R superbikes seat by an inch. I weigh 62KG so the shock pre load would be ok for heavier riders.

It was a bargain at brand new, I could easily sell it for £3000 I wouldn’t pay the £6000 price for a new one now the low value for money rating). are SV650’s out there new for under having owned one of those as I would say at that price are the better buy. £6000 also buy a year old low mileage sportsbike with better more power and probably resale value.

I have seen a couple of bikes with around on the clock going for £4500, I think this is a little for what is essentially a low tech There are also plenty of new ER6’s around for £4800 on 0% this is essentially the same with more power and a riding position. If I was going to buy a new I would be looking to pay no more £5000 OTR, look hard enough and you just be able to get the old model for that
