How'd you get the Hazard like switch, isn't it OEM? I saw it on the manual, buy my 500R doesn't have it.

Kawasaki dropped it after a certain year, 1996? but never updated their manual. I don't think the 500 will last much longer especially with the new 250. It is no longer available in CA and NY.

My father in law didn't make the turn. He got hurt but he's okay now. Insurance totaled the bike and I bought it back and fixed it myself.

Thanks.

I love the flat blackness! I know the ex has to be your baby, after all the time spent fixing it, but how often do you ride it? Does it feel funny jumping off the zx and hopping on the 500? I rode my buddy's 500 just after getting off my zzr and its was a whole different world (slower, upright, loose, rough, but still fun). I would love to get one for the wife.
