Kawasaki Finally Died
My original Kawasaki that I've had for 10 years finally kicked the bucket yesterday. I knew it was about to but was curious to see how long it lasted. I'm guessing this machine had done 2000 plus hours. The ignition coil slowly died and it blew a pinion gear in the gearbox.
Pulled it down after work today, the bore was unmarked and like new, no scoring or wear in the rings either. Even the clutch shoes were only 40% worn, so need for some replacements. The autopsy was me being curious but I honestly expected much more wear than I found. I doubt anything we can buy now will be in this internal condition after the work it had done.
