Hello! New H2 in the stable

Post by windjammer47 » Tue Feb 19, 2019 7:05 pm


I just bought my new 2018 H2 SX SE! I'm in love with this bike and intend to use it as a touring motorcycle. This will replace my BMW F800R that I would use to tour around the US. BMW's maintenance was too expensive for reason and I moved on to a more reliable brand! I look forward to being part of the Kawi community and can't wait to see some of you out on the road!

I retired last year, my wife is still active-duty USAF though. So I get to live on base and play in all the formal events still.

Thanks for your service! I'm glad to know that some of our defense expenditures are being transformed into an H2 SX SE.

isn't it funny that one of the more expensive brands is one of the least reliable. and yet I always feel a little 'attitude' at the bmw dealer. I had a vfr1200 at the time. cost a fraction of a beemer, more reliable, and prob a better ride to boot.

got my h2 today. first ride will be tomorrow - any advise on surviving the first 1000 miles?

I'm another BMW refugee, having traded my 2009 F800 ST for my SE. I recall that it required patience to survive the BMW break-in period and that is even more the case with the SE. I go in for my 600 service tomorrow and can't wait to uncork full power mode... soon.

I will say that while BMW's reputation for grand larceny at the parts counter is well-earned, I find Kawi to be just as guilty. While shopping I contemplated buying an SX and adding the goodies that would make it (mostly) an SE. It quickly became apparent that building Frankenbike was a bad idea. I did not need to look much further than the 12v outlet, which retails at the Kawi store for a mind-boggling $84.95. The local auto parts chain store has them for under ten bucks. And don't get me started on the "optional" chain adjuster tool (I bought one for a Triumph that works fine and cost $15).
