Hi Nocny,

Yes, having use this (either 16/42 and 16/41 ratios) for a long while , like the slightly lower cruising rpms, fuel cons, less vibs and top speed on the highway. See no bottom end torque issues with our superb ninja engine.

Went to kawasaki to buy a new side stand, cost usd 61. Enjoy the H2 pictures, if I did not have to carry luggage, would be riding this sexy beast...

Mileage now at 22K km. Checked the front sprocket and the teeth still ok to go a few thousand K.

Rear brakes pads are also ok. Front pads close to 1mm. Changed to vesrah (VD355). OEM pads are made by Tokico.

Alternative front pads brands:
SBS no 806
EBC FA 379
Ferodo FDB2178

Side stand oem length back on with cheap usd 6 flatfoot.



Have a great weekend  :001:

Hi,
could you write me the part numbers of the front and rear sprocket that you bought?
and can you estimate how much fuel consumption you have reduced?

G'Day Marcin,

Have only been using Sunstar which is a 525 steel sprocket easily found here - https://sunstar-braking.com/amfinder/?find=on-road-kawasaki-versys-1000-lt-2018-4554818. IMO, the steel ones last longer than the aluminium sprockets. Will be using here front 16 / rear 41. The gearing will actually depend on you where normally you ride (either you want the pick-up bottom acceration or highway cruising top speed).

Sorry, I don't their part numbers but mention the number of sprocket teeth you need to your dealer. JT sprockets are also excellent -  http://www.jtsprockets.com/sprockets/. Towerman mentioned ognibene but not sold here https://www.ognibenechaintech.com/en/prodotti/6/ingranaggi-OE.html

Also never really calculated fuel cons but know that after on the last V1k change sprocket from standard 15/43 still had 1 bar of fuel at the same normal pit stop.

Hope it helps.

Managed to re-adjust my bike sag from front/ rear 42/30 mm to now 45/35 mm. See how this will feel.

If you want to get the Ognibene Silent sprockets, have a look at this extract I have highlighted from their catalogue HERE :028:
In the UK i got them from Bike Torque Racing  :7:

You will need 7182Rxx for the front
and 8047Rxx for the rear
Where:
R= silent sprocket (rubber damped)
xx = No. of teeth
I'm currently running this setup  :biker1:
Front - 7182R16
Rear - 8047R41

Appreciate the sharing on our wonderful forum  :028:

The gearingcommander.com can calculate the differences using the different sprocket ratios.

Test report; Ride with sag 45/35 mm is way better. Much info and troubleshooting solutions  in Racetech suspension book

Following CowboyJim clear fault issues, thought of trying to connect a car's OBD2 connector to the Kawasaki diagnostic connector (kdr version 3) -  where the gear indicator is connected, if installed.

Using handphone's app like torque pro (cheaper) or bluedriver, think should be able to read engine perimeters, read and clear any fault codes. they have andriod and IOS versions.

On the 2nd gen, kdr connector was 4 point wire (https://www.sportbiketrackgear.com/product_images/product_pdf/GPDS-K04_VERSYS1000_2015-2016_en.pdf) but see for the 3rd gen it has 6 wires. Had difficult pulling out it's cap this morning. Have to be sure before ordering obd2 to kdr connector adapter.

This morning pics, kdr connector (white) beside battery in sponge casing:





Order the obd2 V1.5 diagnostic tool (https://www.ebay.com/b/ELM327-Vehicle-Diagnostic-Tools/179474/bn_116012156)

OBD2 Adapter to kdr ought be like this but need to confirm on the pins ( 6 or 4)

Well, 4 wires, kdr connector is square ( in other kawasaki model) and the V!K 2019 is rectangular 6 wires kdr connector.

Had a go with the Torque pro app (USD 5 on google play) on my andriod handphone on the Mitsubishi pajero sport and Honda H-rv. The OBD2 works and able to clear the fault (I disconnect the air filter sensor to simulate a fault). Await for the obd2 adapter to try on the V1K. Amazingly saw a video the truimph bikes can connect to the obd2 directly. Note - only buy OBD2 version V1.5

Another interesting thing saw was a new bike shop selling bikes made in China with european KTM design and parts. Called CF Moto - http://global.cfmoto.com/MOTORCYCLES.html and https://cfmotousa.com/ and. The 650 bike uses a versys engine.

Browsing the net for the obd2 adapter, found on amazon at a decent price. Others were damm expensive with shipping more expensive than the item.

https://www.amazon.com/OTKEFDI-Motorbike-Motorcycle-Diagnostic-Connector/dp/B082MMNL78/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=obd+adapter+for+kawasaki&qid=1579844618&sr=8-2

Pls note the obd2 connector for KTM looks idenical with 6 pins but the occupancy is different : https://kds-online.de/en/obd-adapter-ktm-motorcycle-6-pin-to-obd2-k-line-can-bus.html

Hope it will work  :008:. If so, plan to place a phone to display bike's engine parameters on the move  :169:
