History
The first owner; she never let me down even crossing rivers and mud holes so deep it got my seat wet or climbing steep rocky drenched trails and of course on the highway.
She is truly an all arounder, short sprints, or even cross-state travel, plus she doesn't mind at all taken her into the bush.

* I was hesitant due to $$$. However, it is a needed mod! Seriously, it's a day & night difference -love it.
Audio
What???? Maybe Cupholders
Lighting
Hela Halogen

2 Headlights - doubletronics
2 headlights run on low beam (check the pics), awesome mod, why Kawi doesn't do both highlights?
OEM runs only one headlight for low beam, then add the other when on high beam -so dumb Kawi!
