Rather than edit everything, it is appearing that I have a 1 off, as many have mentioned a Corbin seat from an 07 will fit the 2015, my Corbin would not fit my 2015. Whether I caused the shift in the wire harness or it was from the factory ( which I think, because I don't cut wire ties anywhere on a 45' angle which is what was under the seat. I have several Panduit wire tie tools , in fact one of my posts for the Polaris regulator has the GTS in the picture posted)
Since I like to be proactive I thought it prudent to bring this to the attention of the members
, FYI in my case it would take probably 30,000 KM to cause damage if I left the wire harness the way it was. Since 100% of the replies have found lots of clearance, accept this as the same thing discussed about a tight chain
. Speedy mentions to loosen the rear axle before lowering, many have commented that the chain if adjusted properly shouldn't need loosening, well I followed Speedy's direction, however the axle nut was still hand tight, and my chain was tight also, before I loosened it. So anyone sitting on the fence in regards to this lowering link process, there never ever was a problem, and that goes for anything from Moto Werk, I think I have everything made for a 2015 except the bar riser.
I am posting this as have a look, to all 2015 Lowered
owners. The wire harness everywhere is short TAKE NOTE KAWASAKI
even a inch longer wire on everything / every connector, would make a 100% difference.
I think I should have put more emphasis on the wire ties,
as this was the root cause and is a problem on my 2015, around the airbox on both sides.
What I found was a wire tie below the seat bracket ( you may need to remove the seat bracket) that wire tie was pushing the harness downward, there is a heavy wire tie in front of this bracket and is inserted into the bike frame, into a hole provided for this.
I have posted this in the how to forum , but thought it important enough to post.
If you have lowered a 2015 with speedy or other lowering link
, you have made all your rear shock adjustments, have a CLOSE LOOK
at the top of the rear shock, with the seat removed, and the plastic off,my squared edge was tight against the main harness, and was in fact wearing into
What I did; cut the rear wire tie, used a large slot screwdriver and pried up on the harness, and inserted 2 100 LB wire ties, set my tie wrap gun to maximum and while prying up on the harness, I tightened the ties. What a POS
FYI between the air box and other problems I ran into doing the valve shim, plus this latest, I am up to 14, of the 100LB wire ties, correcting the install of POS wire harness. Dam good thing there isn't a Kawi rep knocking on my door like Bell Telephone does, I would recommend putting in ear plugs and
no best not ring the door bell, may accidentally let the guard dog out, only problem is he may lick them to death
One last edit March 2017, my standard of wiring may differ to that of Kawasaki
