That bike started life like one of the dog turds on the front lawn. You know how you dont go out and look under the turd? Well, Ivan did, and found stacks of money under the turd.
The emissions back in 2008 were nothing like today. Despite that fact, Kawasaki had this bike so messed up it wasnt even funny. You know todays bikes are even more so. The bike was not nice to ride. Yes, it was pretty smooth, but the power was strange. You had to be at full throttle to know it. At one point, I considered custom throttle cables. What? Yes, I thought the cables stretched rather than opened the throttle bodies. It was hard to ride, at low speed. You had all the power, or none.
The flash started off at the amazing level, and just keeps getting better. Mostly, its been small tweaks . Ivan said this one was big....he explained what it was. One of the thousands of vacuum tables was off.....sounds good to me. I will ride it, somehow.
