sounds like a dream bike... does it have all that? even the kick start??

have pics for it?

I am so sure that YAMAHA or Honda or Kawasaki.. are able to manufacture a new mechanical device that would bring kick starting back... for the big engines... some kind of a gearbox that magnifies the power of the kick...

Its got all that. It needs some work though. In fact the only way to start is w the kick start. The starter motor works... but the gear is stripped. The Tach doesnt work. Its leaking oil from the gaskets. The carbs need rebuilding but its runs. I was driving it until sept 2017 when I bought the scr.
Its a twin. Only 3 pounds lighter than the scr. If it was tuned up.. it would be faster than the SCR. You have to always give it a little throttle when you come to a stop , or it dies out. It needs work,but all the electrical works. Needs new brakes. I took the tank in the house so it wont rust. The bike is stock except for the bars and I have the original bars. Theres a crack in the flange on the left pipe where it meets the motor.... Loud as ever. Its a loud bike. Screwed up my hearing riding w no plugs. Its a beast but its your dream bike!!! I really like it. Just figured Id get something that was brand new. And the scr is like real real similar in style size and weight to the KZ. The KZ is way more comfortable to ride for me... But theres no comparison to a brand new bike vs one thats 41 years old. They feel way different. Its got the double gauges too. But the tach isnt working. Prob the cable. Im tellin ya. It was an easy transition to the scr. They are real similar in many ways. Il prob leave it parked for awhile now.

On the tag on the fork.. the weight of my KZ is 543 lbs.

Interesting thread on this on the Bolt forum (all 13 pages)!!: Koso meter

Seems it truly is plug-and-play, with no wrapping wires around HT leads etc. There’s input on the thread from a Koso rep as well. It’s certainly been added to my list!

Hey Mellowrider, when you store your motorcycle tank do you do anything to protect it? To keep it from rusting? I have a few tanks in storage too. I spray the inside with wd40, then wash em out and rinse with gas when I want to use them. Just wondering if there is a better method. Also, which forum thread are you wondering about that we cant see the posts?

Can you ask him what sort of delay/lag there is on it, or does it update pretty fast?
Ben
"The only delay that is noticeable is maybe 1/2 second on the shift indicator but the rest is super seamless, gas gauge and oil gauge are more sensitive but it's not bad"

I asked him what he meant by "more sensitive", he responded:

"Like just lighting up.. oil indicator will light up if you're at too much of an angle sometimes and gas indicator comes on maybe 2-3 miles earlier than before. Nothing bad, honestly worth all the features"

Ah, that’s great - thanks very much!! It’s still on my list, as I think
it is for a few others on here too.

Might be a Christmas present from Santa
Ooooh it haunts me every time I open my Amazon cross-website wishlist and look for price drops. It's been permanently "on sale" since April of this year, maybe earlier, on this website. It's the cheapest I've come across in "new" condition, just FYI.

You’ve sold enough bags now to afford one, surely?! @Schu ‘s purchases alone must cover it......!! :laugh:

Yes, but I've taken to investing in my leatherworking business instead of buying accessories for my motorcycle. I'm sure I'll break down and buy the new meter one of these days, though. It's only a matter of time lol
