Thank you onewizard! Kawasaki ought to give jdrocks a call. The bikes on that thread are super cool! I'll most certainly dig into his methods when I'm ready to dive in. Fortunately, Versys motors look sort of available. Ninja conversion may not be necessary. Have ordered a Cyclepedia shop/service manual for '07 to '14 bikes but a vid is a priceless tool when a boy who has been raised on Clymer's knows that there are blurbs in print that go: Step 3- Warning! Locate, remove, rebuild or replace the diostat. Or, they forgot Step 3. Great looking source!
And, Mr. brwster, I have an update. I forgot I posted that thing about the bent rims and the Blue Ridge Pkwy. The trip was coming fast and I didn't take time to check for replies. Unfortunately, all of that pre-trip stuff is true. One boy got lit up and tried to make a curve go straight and the other packed into a Caddy Lac while celling. One, the Caddy kisser, learned. The other? Well, his/my bike is the subject hereto. The rim story turned out excedingly well. I bought the China rims and had a local machine shop press bearings that had dems that fit the new rims as well as the axles and things still spin swimmingly. Also, nobody got killed or even hurt on the trip and we had a blast! I feel serious guilt that people were praying. Ayyyyyy.
