If the weather holds out I will be picking mine up on March 2. I am trading in my 15 Versys. We have put almost 40K on her and still love this machine. We are really looking forward to the SE. I will be doing some videos and a comparison blog post so stay tuned. I am jealous of the riders that already have theirs.

It may be just me, but so far I've found all the reviews mediocre. We all know how agile and powerful the Vk is, yes it now stops a bit better and may change gear a bit faster, but surely the major change is the electronic suspension. I await an in depth report on how it performs and how it can be tuned for different roads and riding styles.....

I think the lucky first owners from this resource will be the one to answer these questions in detail...  :notsure:

Anyone knows a source where to buy the red plastic clip for the fuel tank hose?
As usual, Kawasaki do not sell it alone (comes with the hose assy…) and I would like to get a spare or two.
There is a green version like this  :027:



From there people - www.kawiperformance.com/fuel-system.html  :028:

If it will fit a Mk1 V1k (2012) I would also be interested.

I would expect most any auto parts store to have replacements. Thinking it should be pretty standardized by now.

Yes you should have  :192:  :008:
Any gas (especially with Ethanol in it) goes off / gets stale after a couple of months  :125:
Use some Stabil 360 to keep it fresh  :123A:

Sorry to hear (whoops) of your ear infection, but look forward to your review of the new wheels, the screen does look good IMHO.....and the posh earplugs when you get them.

All great ideas/suggestions guys.  I keep the battery on a 'tender' so it's not a voltage issue.  I should've mentioned that the full tank of gas that came with the bike is probably at least a year old and doubtful if there is a fuel preserver in it.  I may wait for a dealer visit until I at least get a fresh tank of fuel in it.  I'll check the tachometer tonight and see were it settles after warm up.  Are you guys saying that the tach is sitting at 1,100 on initial cold start or at warm up stage?  Mine tachs higher for the first 30 or so seconds when first starting it cold, then settles down.  I'll follow up in a bit~  :763:
At first start, the RPMs will be higher, and will drop when the engine is at full operating temp. Make sure it is not below 1100 when warm.
