Kawasaki Other description

I purchased this bike in 2009 for my then 17 year old son.  It was in sad shape and was last plated in 1982.  It had 3200 miles on it.  I bought it on a bill of sale and obtained a clear Indiana title through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.  The frame, swing arm, side and center stand, steering head, and other associated parts were power coated.  Everything rusted was either replaced, cleaned up, or painted.  The cables, tires and tubes, grips, battery, air cleaner, oil and filter, bulbs, headlight bucket, carburetor spigots, and helmet lock were purchased new.  The seat was recovered. The inside of the tank was coated.  The carbs were rebuilt several times and have new diaphragms. The mufflers are original and are solid.  I struggled with a lean condition on the right cylinder that no one could resolve and the bike sat until early this year when I took the bike to a shop that figured out the issue.  It now runs perfect ans has another new battery.  My son is no longer interested and I have other motorcycles that I ride.  It is probably as close to a new '78 Kaw 400 that you can find.  Its time for it to have a new home.  It is for sale and if I get an offer I can't refuse its gone.  Feel free to call with any questions on (765) 744-5518.  Please leave a message if I don't answer.  You can also contact me through ebay.

2014 Kawasaki J300 Scooter Spy Photo Surfaces

Mon, 07 Oct 2013

A spy photo of the new 2014 Kawasaki J300 has emerged, a week after the maxi-scooter was first spotted being filmed for a promotional video in Milan. JOIN THE COMMUNITY: J300Forum.com As previously reported, the J300 will be Kawasaki’s first scooter intended for western markets. The J300 sports a broad front fairing, not unlike other maxi-scooters such as the Yamaha TMax or BMW‘s C600 Sport and C650 GT scooters.

You want a nice little car, you do.

We ran a couple of stories last week - both, coincidentally, about new Kawasakis. One was the first peek of the new ZX10R – hot stuff you’d imagine – the other, the new W800 retro parallel twin. I suppose it shouldn’t have shocked us, which story was most popular in terms of hits but it really does mark a seismic shifts in British biking attitudes that the W800 story doubled the hits of the ZX10 piece.

Kawasaki Celebrates 30 Years Of Ninjas With Anniversary Model ZX-6Rs

Tue, 06 May 2014

In 1985 Ronald Reagan is President, Back To The Future is a box office smash, New Coke is introduced and so is Kawasaki’s first 600cc Ninja sportbike. Thirty years later we’re still riding Ninjas but, thankfully, drinking original recipe Coca-Cola. For 2015, Kawasaki celebrates three decades of Ninja models with a 30th Anniversary Ninja ZX-6R and Ninja ZX-6R ABS.
