In the EU new riders are restricted to 33 bhp for two years after passing their full tests. The restrictor limits the bike to this. Australia has a similar rule for learner riders. The 33 bhp category disappears in the EU from January as more age related restrictions come in, but there will now be a 47 bhp intermediate licence category.

For the states the 33 bhp kit would make the 650 an excellent starter bike.

From another Aussie who has had it done.

We removed the ECU restrictor ourselves, very easy, under the seat/pillion seat.

For the restrictor screw my mechancic did it when the bike went in for its first service. Apparently they needed to take quite a few things off the bike to get to it properly, no way near as easy as previous models. Probably only cost me an extra $40 on top of my service charges.

I was told by the Kawa guys here that they won't have any unrestricted White Ninjas in Aus so thats why I bought the restricted one and them removed them.

I'm a girl so easier to colour co-ordinate with White/Black than Green. lol

How did you go with insurance / rego? I was planning on removing it when I get my R licence for a bit, and insuring it as a 650r.

Then when it comes time to sell just reinstall limiters and obviously cancel my insurance. The bike will most likely be traded for a zx6r, z800 or z1000 either way from Kawa.

Well that is the tricky part. My insurance company said it was fine as it is only a slight modification. Even though technically it isn't at all, since the model is still a 650! But VicRoads will not take the 'LAMS' off your rego. That is if you are in Victoria.

I am on a full license so am not doing anything illegal by riding a non restricted bike but Vic Roads said you are not allowed to remove the restrictors. So it could possibly affect your TAC insurance if you have an accident.

Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I'm assuming the 2013 650L model would be the same? Ie. removing the tank etc, gonna be on my open license within the next two months, so thinking about doing it.

Thanks for the quick reply Cozmonz. I've looked into the local laws and its fine for my situation. Is Rob's way the easiest method to get to the restrictor screw? I've never removed the tank before O.o

"The 33 bhp category disappears in the EU from January as more age related restrictions come in, but there will now be a 47 bhp intermediate licence category."

The Harley 883cc Sportster and the 400cc Ninja have about 45 peak horsepower- maybe the UK rule makers looked at these 2 bikes.

My Honda 600cc cruiser has about 33 peak horsepower with a custom exhaust and rejetting, giving it about the same top speed as a 250cc Ninja, but it is slower in corners because it weighs more and scrapes the footpegs sooner, with its lower seat and frame.
