I've bought a Kawasaki W650 from a friend for the princely sum of $4000. As if I didn't have enough grandpa bikes in the garage already. It blows no smoke, runs quite nicely and is all there - though it's in rough cosmetic condition. Matt never cleaned the bike in the 60,000km's he's had it. (All up it's got around 90,000km's on it). It's got quite high mileage but I'm not too fussed about that. It's such an overbuilt and under-stressed* engine it should have another 40k or so on it before the top end could do with a look-over. So while it runs okay it has a few things that I need to address. It needs a new front disc, pads, some stainless lines while I'm there and a pair of shoes for the rear brake. I'm not a fan of the rubber on there at the moment so that'll go sometime over the summer as well. It's been dropped at very low speed so it's got one cosmetic issue that really, really annoys me. The RHS header is brand new and immaculate and the left is pitted as all hell. At some stage I'll be doing the exhaust, the shocks and springs and a few other cosmetic modifications so I can live with that in the interim. Until I go all happy with a grinder and cut everything back it's just going to be a commuter. They're awesome bikes. Boring as all get out really, but so well built and so damn reliable (fingers crossed). *Yeah, it's slow.
