Was just thinking about the thread a few weeks ago about how good our bikes are bullet proof and loaded with extras. How about the things that would make this a perfect bike. Lets see how many "improvements" this bike needs to stay in production. Maybe send it off to Kaw or maybe they would see it on this site.
My first selection would be fuel injection for better power and economy, and a redesigned frame that allows easy access to the engine without having to pull it for stator repairs etc.
Add to the list please, nothing exotic just what does this bike really need.
damng a 5 gal tank?!?!? that is gonna be huge...... i mean the bike will be top heavy. look at the size of a 5 gal tank, they would have to strech the frame. i would say just go to FI and drop the displacement to 650-600, cause u would get the same curves as the 750 with about 15% more mileage
nat'l cycle deflector shield
westco 12v30 MF, 30A/h w/ 350 CCA's w/ custom box
TOC stator cover w/ Frankenstator mod!
Soon to have (own or on order)
Mez's 110-FRT 170/80-Rear
Custom rear fender and tail light
Givi hard bags w/ custom rear turn signals
Larger gass tank, better designed gauges, grease in the splines...
Whata you got against the guages? I'm just curious cus I tend to love the style dual coffee cans. =) Although having the speedo properly set would be nice.
As for things I could see improved, I think the seat is nice, but i'm comparing it to a 81440 that was all beat up, and an 05 800 who's seat is the same as putting a bandana over a piece of plywood. I would like to see a rear disc brake, and a factory integrated PTT (push to talk) button on the clutch bar. And more color options would be nice.
I think the frame redesign to allow some engine work without pulling it, and a better charging system; Fuel Injection would be nice too. Adding fins to the jugs would make it look better and cool a little better maybe. Different location of the r/r for better cooling.
