So even on new ones? How does Kawasaki stop people from blowing them up? Or do they just natrually limit somehow?

I don't think I have ever owned a m/c with a rev limiter. Are you sure yours has/had one?

I've never seen a motorcycle newer than 95 without one lol

I'm sure. It is an electronically controlled rev limiter.

I can fire it up and record it if ya like.

There is no need. I do not know and you say you do, it is settled at that point.

I did a short google. The only one talking about a rev limiter on this bike is you. OEM ET is 14.91? Egad.

I'm just asking cause my 800 has one for sure. I'm surprised the 750 does not. So what happens when you twist it in neutral?

Check that out... http://www.dynaonline.com/skins/down...ct/DDK2-14.pdf

They say it doesn't have one either. Amazing. I would have blown it up if I had a 750
