So......should you need any parts there's a chance I'd have something you need. Feel free to post other questions if you have any, since I have an actual Kawasaki manual for the F7 as well as some of their other "enduro" bikes.
I got the nicest one running of my three, and intend to sell it when the weather gets a little bit nicer. The 2nd one with a title, is in process of re-assembly in sort of a "street-tracker" style. I plan to ride it for a while.
Best wishes with your bike.
Thanks Lynn. I ordered a Clymer's manual a few minutes ago. The battery on the bike is dead. I know the bike NEEDS to have a battery installed, but do I need a working battery? Isn't it basically a "current sink" in this application? I may need a factory front fender at some time in the future. Would you have one to sell? Thanks again, Kelly.
