New Exhaust, 33000, oil usage
« on: June 30, 2012, 06:06:38 AM »
Hi Guys,
Just some feedback, now done 33000kms - got a Kawasaki 1150 exhaust which is brilliant, quiet and good performance, got it at a scrapyard for R 300.
Still got original front tyre but need to replace soon.
Belt needs another replacement, did it at about 15000 and it still looked good but "grabbing"" now.
Use a lot of oil if do hiway trips at 130kph - round town at 100ish still ok.
Every now and then I still manage by accident to go way into the red on rev counter, mustn't bend the valves again.
Still think it is a great bike and I would certainly buy one again, just next time I wouldn't abuse it as much.
Regards,
Doug
