Hi John,Just setting off to the dealers to pick up my UK 1400GTR, it's been in stock for 6 days but a minor paperwork problem held up delivery. All sorted now so can pick up today:rofl
Hi Ken,Hi John,
I have mixed feelings about your mixed review!
The screen issue is not a surprise as every bike I have owned has needed either a taller screen or an aftermarket addition such as the Laminar Lip.
At 5 feet 8 inches the seat height could be a problem for me but when I sat on the bike it didn't seem to be. I suppose that being used to riding the Hesketh at 838mm height and only getting my toes down, the 815mm of the GTR seems a luxury.
The heat issue on the legs has been raised a number of times and this is the one I would worry about most when travelling long distances. I can only assume that if the guys in California find it a problem Kawasaki will come up with a solution fairly quickly!
I don't pick mine up until mid August but I will have a 500 mile journey back to home - a good test if ever there was one!:runaway
Did they say what the paperwork problem was. I should have picked up mine today but the dealer told me that there was a problem with the paperwork, and that was it. Hopefully will pick up early neaxt week.
Have noticed my bike is now running with less heat on my leg than when first ridden. Still warm but much much better.The screen and heat issues were ones I noticed as well. The screen will just have to be replaced when it's available. The heat on mine was bad when I first got it last Saturday, but after 200 miles it seems to be running much cooler. It's still warm, but not hot like at first.
