Hi all... from France !

Post by benja » Wed Aug 26, 2020 2:21 pm


Hi All,

After 14 years with two Hayabusa (first stolen, second on sale)...
I don't except to live this but even if the Hayabusa was a terrible and lovely machine even if for yesterday, now, i want an easiest bike for every day...

After trying several bikes (speed, Z1000 SX, etc) ... i've tried the H2 SX and i was totally in love !

After 700 km travelling during my holidays, i kept it ...
H2 SX 2018 with Performance and Travel pack.

What i added :
- transparent covering protection for headunit (rpm and screen),
- tracker using low cost SIM card and domotic monitoring.

I will modify the Akra exhaust (sorry my busa have 2 akra without dbkiller and for everyday Akra is not so noisy !) by removing db killer. Just waiting adequate rivets.

Some questions in the aim of joigning you :
- how do you tighten the chain with H2 rear wheel ?
- i except to remove some parts to reduce weight. I'm looking for a full titane line as i have on my Busa (Akra line) ?
- does someone make its maintenance ? I've done mine since 20 years on my previous CBR, Busa bikes...

Some pics :

Image

Using SMS tracking, plus domotics software, plus virtualization on my home server plus traccar admin server...

Image

Adding a double-USB ports (switch on/off) for mobile phone and tracker charge :

Image

On my previous Busa, i've added a TK104 with alarm, data/SMS tracking piloting horn, fuel pump, lightings...

Using 60$ aliexpress bag on the tank ...

Image

Adding screen protection :

Image

Supercharge your day :) !

Kawasaki didn't include a chain adjusting tool in the tool kit so you will need to buy a C-spanner to adjust the chain. I bought one from Motomfg.com here in US. It is for a Ducati 748 & 916. I originally bought it for my Triumph Sprint so a tool for any of those bikes will fit.

Here is a video on how to adjust the chain on a single-sided swingarm.

Hi Champ87,

Thanks for your reply. I'm pretty sure that i already have this product in my toolbox.
Check it during the weekend and sent you pictures to be sure.
I need to spent time to understand how i can unmount the rear wheel block to adjust it because i never had a single-sided swingarm.

Benja,
There are 2 fasteners that need to be loosened so the chain tension can be adjusted. When re tightening those fasteners, take up the slack evenly and slowly.

I need to check it during the weekend.
Finally, when i bought the H2SX i've planned to sell my abba used for my busa in order to buy a front stand (due to the central stand).
After thinking, i bought yesterday fitting kit and front lift system...

Hi @Thunderdawg ,

Just to be sure, when you speak about fasteners, are they them in the red curve ? No more ?
Image

I've tried to measure the diameter of the circle block to order the best tool to adjust it. I found 125mm, is it okay ?
Does anyone have already order it ?
I found this but i notice the handle is too small ... i except a longer one.

https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Kawasaki-H2-SX- ... Sw~gRVhxKl

Code: Select all

What about the methodology ? It is the same as a classical bike ? on the side stand (not on the central stand), measure nearly 2cm of deviation ?
Sorry, i saw the video, methodology is the same...

benja,
Yes, those are the 2 fasteners I meant. See Champ87's post above. The Ducati wrench works as well as one for the Triumph Sprint which is what I use.

Some news.

After ordering a oil temperature cork plug (not sure about the term in english), received !
I used this kind of temperature sensor on my previous bikes... so do it again.

Thanks for your message about the chain adjuster. I received mine, match perfectly and simple to use it !
