Kawasaki Other description
1984 Kawasaki KZ550-F2 LTD for sale.
6 speed, shaft driven, 550 cc displacement, inline four cylinder.
This bike was a barn find last spring, non-running and had 16,500 miles on the odometer. Matching dents on either side of the gas tank do not affect functionality, just looks, previous owner didn't remember how they got there. I fixed it up and just hit 20,000 miles on it a few days ago.
Here's everything I did:
Rebuilt the carbs
Balanced the carbs
Chased out the electrical gremlins
New spark plugs
New fuel petcock and fuel hoses
New low-fuel sensor
Newer tires (June 2015 - 3500 miles on them)
Newer battery (June 2015)
Changed fork oil
Changed shaft oil
New rear shocks
Steel top box with adjustable backrest (I have the original sissy bar as well)
Fork seal boot protectors
Great-running bike, averages 40-45 MPG depending how hard you run it. Has no problem cruising 80-85 mph on the highway, the 6th gear and windshield really helps. Has highway pegs as well to stretch out you legs.
This is a great bike for around the city and to cruise around the metro. This is the bike I learned to ride on. I am 5'11" and I can easily flat-foot this bike with knees bent. Bike weighs around 450 lbs wet. I have always used non-oxygenated gasoline in it. Holds about 3.3 gallons of gas, low fuel comes on after about 2 gallons are used up, around 80 miles or so on the trip meter.
Let me know if you are interested or have questions.

A big thanks to all at Newcastle Motorcycles for lending me a Honda CB1000F on Saturday to do nothing other than join mates for a blast round some fantastic roads in the North East. The buddies in question were Alan Smith (Bradley’s dad) and two stroke addict and race fan Chris Berriman. We headed east over the moors from the ‘Toon’ heading towards Barnard Castle then back through Consett before finishing up at the picturesque Tynemouth.Fri, 16 Dec 2011 00:00:00 -0800
MotoGP star Randy de Puniet commissioned Deus customs to build him a motorcycle for the streets of Sydney. Randy's brief was for a middleweight, 2-up twin that would be light enough to slice through the city streets and have the power for blasts on the open road, and have orange, black and white for the paint. Deus chose the Kawasaki W650, lowered it at both ends, fitted an SR500 tank, lobbed the old air box and added K&N filters, stuck on a custom 2-into-2 exhaust system and added low-profile fenders to finish off the clean and simple look.
