I have to sell the dear Kawie, since i acquired a Tri Speedy -- can't justify having 2 bikes. The Kawie has been thoroughly tuned up Dec 2015; new oil, filters, plugs, etc.; carbs removed, cleaned, & adjusted; new TruGel battery; new K&N air filter & oil filter; chain completely cleaned & treated with Dupont Teflon Chain-Saver dry lubricant; cooling system flushed & refilled with Cycle Logic’s Engine Ice coolant. No problems with the bike. Never driven aggressively, used for commuting & a little travel. See photos.
As everyone knows, it has very low seat height & wet weight, ‘twould be an excellent road bike for female riders. Also, as everyone here knows, this was the last year the Kawie 500 was made.
Dent on right side of tank & slight scrapes on windscreen & right hand deflector are results of being blown over by thunderstorm while parked on irregular ground.
I've put $2357 worth of extras on the bike. Here is a partial list: Additional stock seat ($130) with Russell Day-Long Touring Seat Modification ($350); National Cycle windscreen N2220 ($157) + mount kit ($75); Kuryakyn highway pegs [Longhorn Offset mounts ($72) + quick clamps ($42) + extensions ($36) + pegs ($36)]; Brakeaway cruise control ($180); Saddleman Express Cruis'n Slant Saddlebags ($150); Pro-Tac Driver's backrest ($146); Kuryakyn footpegs ($54) + stirrups ($72); Kisan Pathblazer Headlight Modulator ($110); Kawasaki rear cargo rack ($85); Memphis Lowers ($25) + mounting kit ($57); National Cycle Hand Deflectors ($81); Drag Specialties Tachometer ($80); Scootworks handlebar risers ($80); Headlight visor ($27); Kawasaki license plate frame ($25); Fork stem nut cover ($20); Chrome reservoir cover ($17); Front helmet lock ($14), etc.
I paid $6000 for the Kawie, so i have ~$8400 in her. She is for sale at $4500, minus the Russell touring seat. I think that will sell on eBay.
Interested folks can contact me in Utah at 435-259-6352, which is my house VOIP line that is down right now but should be up in a day or two, or at 334-498-1196, which is a cell ph.
Thanks. -- W.Cox
