Kawasaki KZ650 description

A rare find ... great example of a classic Kawasaki.  Perfectly maintained and a beautiful ride. Kept original.  Needs nothing. New Metzeler Lasertec tires. Custom rack included.  Tail bag (pictured) not included.

This is a D2 Model - Differences from 1978 D1:

Chrome was used on the headlamp shell, clock lowers and chain guard.   The rear tailpiece was dropped in place of a painted rear fender. The front exhaust downpipes were crossed over and the mufflers were made a bit shorter. The rear wheel was now a small but fat 16-inch item for that all-important custom look. In America there was also a D1A model in 1978 and an E model in 1980, which were very similar but did not have as much equipment. The D2 also got the drilled brake discs and sintered pads from the C3 model of this year as well as the new "automatic" cam chain tensioner mentioned in the B3

Don't miss this one!

From Cycle Guide -

With the limited-production KZ650 SR, the latest of Kawasaki's factory-built, custom-like boulevard buzzers, the company has created a flash-cycle which will provide pleasure for more than profiling. Although the 650 SR has received a full complement of chopper-esque styling touches from its wide, 16-inch, flat-black-and-polished alloy rear wheel to its bobbed and pin-striped front fender, the stylists apparently remembered that after the ogling is over, someone has to actually ride the motorcycle.

For example, consider comfort, one of the most-often sacrificed aspects of semi-chopped boulevard cruisers. Look at the SR's carefully styled seat which recalls Triumph customs and yet still complements the Harley-like suggestions in the tank and rear wheel. When you're done looking, you can climb on and know that it will be over two hours before the saddle even begins to feel stiff. The handlebar looks right but isn't radical enough to ever cramp your arms or bend them at awkward angles. The lean-look front fork glides smoothly over most bumps and the rear shocks keep the ride comfortable, too.

Kawasaki Issues Recall on Unauthorized Concours 14 Police Models

Wed, 28 Aug 2013 00:00:00 -0700

Kawasaki announced a recall on 44 2012-2013 Concours 14 potentially faulty motorcycles allegedly converted for police use without the manufacturer’s consent. Back in early 2012, Kawasaki announced a recall on 278 2009-2012 Concours 14 police motorcycles because the add-on equipment installed by Idaho-based Beaudry Motors suffered electrical problems. According to the recall documents, the electrical system installed by Beaudry could overload the charging circuit between the regulator and the two batteries and eventually blow the main fuse.
