Ok I know it's not a Kawi, but one of my girlfriends is buying a bike tomorrow with my blessing that it's mechanically sound. It's a... OK here it is...... 1997 yamaha YZF 600R. The bike looks great and runs really good. No shifting issues, brakes feel good, chain and sprockets are in good shape and has been female owned since day one. My only gripe is it feels "heavy" in the front. Tire pressures are good, steering head bearings are good. It's been lowered too about an inch or two and the forks look like they have been lowered about an inch and a half.. Could that be why it feels heavy?
