Re: 15k Service

Just made my appointment for the 15K service, $1750 for the work. The dealer (Ohio) said it will require over 18 hours to perform the maintenance. How does the price compare to anyone else that had the service done? Ouch....1750 is pretty steep for a service. I paid 1100 for the 18K service on my B...

Re: OEM or Hiflo

What's the price difference between a hiflo oil filter and OEM? Why spend 22K+ on a motorcycle and then worry about saving a few bucks on the cost of a oil filter? Usually about half the price for the Hiflo. Saving a few bucks here and there is what allows people to buy nice things 😁 I'm guessing y...

Re: Glowing headers on startup?

Re: riding postion H2 se plus verses 1000sx

I test rode the 1000sx and own a 2018 H2SXSE and it seems to me the 1000sx had a slightly more upright riding position. There are a couple options to raise the height of the H2SXSE clip-ons from bar riser kit to the ABM handlebar kit. The ride position of my H2SXSE is a little to aggressive for me s...

Re: Seize bearing DANGER

Not at all. I bought the Brock's sourced bearings; the combined front/rear set. It was around $484 delivered to the door. I had my dealership swap them in when they did the tire change. Instantly noticed a difference. Only thing better will be when I get the carbon wheels one day. https://brocksper...

Re: Seize bearing DANGER

Not every unit is like this, though. There have been a number of people who have checked theirs and it's been fine. It's the whole cost/benefit analysis thing and there probably isn't enough data to warrant a full recall on all the machines. I had them do mine when they installed the new tires and ...

Re: bagster tank covers

I think with a little effort they could have done a much better job at matching the color of the bag to the color of the tank. They would have been better off dying the color of the bag black, any shade of black would look significantly better than the green. If I were looking for a tank bag that sh...

Re: 15k Service

I have a local shop that costs about half as much, and I trust them to work on most stuff (they services my 6R). I take it to a Kawasaki dealership though because I know they have the tools, and I know they work on other H2s as well so they have the experience. I think it's fine to use local shops ...

Re: WTS: 2018 H2SXSE $16K

Put an ABM kit w LSL bars on it and your issues are solved, sorry you have found yourself in the position of an amazing bike and only being able to put 1800 miles on it Thanks for the advice but I don't want to invest the 500 + bucks for the ABM handlebar kit simply because I don't normally keep bi...
