In reality, lower end torque is just a sprocket change away.

Too much low end torque will be too hard to hold the bike down in drag racing right??????

Can you tell me how much room there is under the seat for storage?
There is absolutely NO space under the seat. All the junk under there is FLAT with no gaps or pockets, except for the tool kit compartment. There is a *very* slight indentation in the under-side of the seat near the ECU, and as fish said in his review (if I remember correctly), you could probably fit a power commander or a single pack of cigarettes there, but THAT'S IT!

Bottom line - forget about storing ANYTHING under the seat. I don't even think a scrunched-up bungie net would fit in there.

Whats up with the storage with the new bikes?? Isn't none.. WTF? Something I like on one of my very old bikes 92 ZX11D was the neat little compartment for your wallet or something on the top side of the fairing close to the triple trees...

I don't think I've reved it over 7k rpms yet, but it pulls so hard from 4-7k, I can't imagine what it's going to be like once I open it up a bit. I took it up to about 130 or so on the way home tonight... DAMN it pulls like a freight train in 6th gear even!!

I've only got 70 or so miles on it so far, but I plan to put 300 or so on Sunday if I get my work done and get to ride with my buddies.




Already void your warrantee?

The warranty doesn't say anything about observing the manufacturer's recommended break-in...

I'll be breaking in my bike however *I* chose to.

You don't start that drag race that low - rather mid-range

Actually I was hoping for HUGE low end torque
so I could easily set the sprocket the other way around
Just to save some gasoline at high speed

Just quoting from another thread "http://www.bikeland.org/board/viewthread.php?FID=27&TID=23078&set_time=1145777424"

I personally dont think the ecu does data logs rpms/miles so as to provide KMC info to deny a warrantee claim, or for any other purpose.

I dont believe that a Kawi is any different than a Honda in the area of metallurgy, or engineering.
The 929 Honda had NO specific breakin procedure in the owners manual and was/is a very reliable long life engine. Is this because Honda has better machining tolerances, better metalurgy, better engineering, better quality control? I dont think so.

I remember back a few years when Muzzy did the top speed runs with the ZX12R. Muzzy broke in the bikes on thier dyno. It only took a a few hours to accomplish this breakin, not 2000 miles as Kawi had recommended. Think Rob was trying to make the bikes dogs so they couldnt beat a 'busa? I dont think so. Think Rob was using a recognized procedure, that accomplished the breakin effectively in the shortest possible time? I think so.

As you said, its your bike, do as you wish. To each his own.

I wont be breaking in a new Kawi until the GTR1400 is in my garage.That most likely gives me a few more years to wait, seeing as Kawi hasnt extracted the last ounce of life outta the Connie yet.
BTW, my ST1100 has 200,000 miles on it and I have no idea how it was broken in!
