You hold a mirror up to it and it makes a sentence.

thats alright, do the same myself at times.

actually, I was kinda reluctant to make the post BECAUSE
it seemed like that info should be easy to find.

I DID SEARCH.....and inseveral places.
Even in that custom search block up top on this forum

BUT for whatever reasons, I could not find JACK.

Using googl3, closest I got was zx12 junk, but no help.

So y'all.....please go ahead and blast away, yep the answer is out there.
so go find it......and yep, you old fool, if you are not really that good on computers,
you shouldnt be driving one.

Guess, this was my mistake.
Nearly 40 lookers here and not 1 willing to mention just how easy this is to find.

wow.....there now, I have lit off!

and I thought this forumwas different than the others out there, that was kinda why I joined.

and mods, if you would please cancel my signup, I will kindly go ask thiseasy question on another forum that has absolutely nothing to do with a kawasaki

bad search maybe

okay here is the custom search result I received.

http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...756j2463980j20

I have used this type of custom google search block on many other sites with great results.
maybe this forum search custom works differently, maybe not.

maybe i need many more words....but rather than hunt and peck, i asked a simple question asking for help

thankyou very much

I'm still not really sure what you're asking,(or drinking), but try this. http://tewarehouse.net/archives/557
Too easy, perhaps?

Search really doesn't work on this site! I don't know why?

Google will find it on this forum, but this sites search will not.

If you decide to leave you should at least read that thread on engine numbers and all the disputes about it!

You are right fasteddie and then it ended in a bunch of disputes. Why is it such a big deal and you may never know what the numbers mean or where it was built?

I don't think you should leave the forum because 40 members did not respond. Some of them may have read all the disputes and just thought I don't have anything concrete for this guy.
