Might be an idea to take ll's offer and try the '05 to compare. Will be in Exeter myself in a couple of weeks time. Could arrange something for then if you want to try mine.

Must be a problem with the Ti finish then. Not good though. Sad

Fellas,
am going on holiday to the south of France with the family today for just over a week, but will be more than willing to try and see if our bikes are similar vibe wise. will be in touch to see if your still up for it around 10th Aug, hope we can get together and see. Bridge would be an ideal meeting point though.

Fellas,
12th would suit me better. but would have to be later PM. If weather is OK say we meet at Bridge by 3pm, would that be OK? If weather is shit, make it Sunday same time.

Quick update,
My 10 has been with Kawasaki Bristol for a couple of weeks whilst I've been on holiday and during that time they've changed the bar ends and a few other bits and pieces. The result has been astounding, the bike is sooo much smoother to drive, no vibes throught the bars at all and I'm now a happy bunny.

The thing that pisses me off, is that at first the shop didn't want to know,it was only when I wrote, quoting the sale of goods act that they started to take notice. Anyway, thankfully it's all sorted and is even smoother to ride than the test bike I took out all those months ago.
Point to note, that crap weekly paper MCN, mentioned in the superbike test this week about vibration on the 10, so perhaps Kawasaki UK will acknowledge there is a problem with some peoples bikes and look into it.

Hi Torque,
Apparently the engine mounts are adjustable, and they played with these to get the best position, also, I think they put a tube filled with silicone in the clip ons. It's made it a different bike! All things I could've done myself, but, as it's under warranty and all that, think they should have done it.
Ref the holiday, DazK, my brother has been a very bad influence, we pissed up every night and did no phys at all. Felt very good though, just lounging and drinking, talking about bikes, birds and life in general, shame the wives and kids had to be there to spoil it!! (Just joking, love to take the kids on holiday..... Laughing )
