hey all, ive been a fiero nut for a few years on here, but recently acquired a new toy that deserves some interest in the internal combustion engine field. it only has two wheels tho. yep, motorcycles... i got a kawasaki kz550H gpz. one fast little eighties bike. its fun, my first bike, and id thought since there were no motorcycle threads on pff, maybe id start one in their other threads...
well, its red, four cylinder, chain driven, six speed, and you guessed it fun!.
maintenance calls for anything from 10w 40 to 20w50 motor oil, i have 10 40 in it now, and it runs good with that. new chain, realized afterward that i should have bought an "o-ring chain" which has small o rings inside the links that holds the oil inside the moving parts of the chain. making it last way longer. but its past experience now. and i have a new front and rear sprocket, new tires dunlop cheap special highway tires
they do decent on grip and so far ok on life but i only have about 1500 miles of driving on them. speaking of miles, i have only 16k on the bike itself!!! not bad for a free bike eh?.... oh i forgot that part too! it was free!!! :-) as was both of my fieros... lol
