  1. New Kawasaki 800 in Chiang Mai.

    There was a big crowd checking out these Kawasaki 800’s.

    It was a good chance to try out my new camera.

    They look pretty good.

    All yours for 37500 baht.

  2. Sounds great. But the engine looks small, comparison with the FZ8's.
    Let's see which one do you like better?

    Yamaha-FZ8.

  3. Is it just me or are the latest Kawa's a bit over designed?

    Look at that clutch cover..:crazy:
     
  4. @MotoRex - I think you missed out a 0 there :)

    These have been selling in Bkk already the past two months. Note however that this is the non-ABS version.
     
  5. Lol. Yeh your right. Can you imagine how many zeros you would need if the price was in Lao Kip.
     
  6. Congratulations Sir. Nice Bikes I think and great Value for Money! You could just change Your Name to JimmyKawazaki! Or Jimmykawa etc! Enjoy them.
     
  7. Jimmy give us a report and road test once you have put the Z800 thru its paces please
     
  8. Only did around 300km before going back to work, but first impressions are good.
    Just about perfect for Thai roads. Not stupidly fast but plenty power.
    Both seats appear to be constructed with recycled barbed wire and crushed glass. I don't like the exhaust but have bought a road legal Akrapovic. Gearing is alittle low for my driving style so may drop a couple of teeth on rear sprocket.
    All in well worth the cash, origionally wanted the Z1000 but couldn't justify the price, will spend the difference on shiney bits instead.
     
  9. I agree, the seat is damn hard & uncomfortable just going around the block on the Kawasaki test ride bike!! Maybe buy a GEL pad & cut it into the OEM seat will improve things.

    You made a good choice with the Akrapovic, it seems to be the only exhaust that that utilizes the Kawasaki mid section servo butterfly valve & from what I hear from various z8 owners here, has a much smoother low & mid range performance with the added back pressure or it's just a better made exhaust.

    I saw a z800 being revved up thru the gears on a paddock stand in a tire shop last month & the bike was doing a 150kmh on the clock!! Be aware that the speedo sensor is on the crank & not from the front wheel, so dropping teeth will greatly effect the true speedo reading. (i think) :geek1:

    It's a great bike & good value for money...enjoy :happy2:
     
  10. I think so, too. The headlight area looks like out of a manga! But that's probably what the kids want these days. Or maybe I'm getting old. :)

    But Honda isn't going overboard with the design...?
     
  11. KLX Looks very Cool. good Job!
     
  12. Thanks, no where near finished yet. Big bore soon along with Ninja 250 wheels if I can find a set.
