Yeah it was. You need to lift the tank and remove air box to get to the spark plugs but it was plug and play. It cost about £230 pounds and is so easy to use. Only slight issue is that the standard link rod was 5 mm too long so I had to move the selector 1 notch forward and have th lever sitting a little low but once I get the rearsets then I'm sure that it will be fine or I will shave some off the rod.

Sp synchro tech is the brand and it works as it should but I have heard good things from healtech quick shifter.
I did get a faulty healtech servo eliminator purchased through bikerdiscountstore but both companies customer service was excellent and it was changed without fuss.

Thanks for the info and advice. I am still thinking about the bazzaz unit so if I do go for that I will get the qs built for it. Weighing up all my options.

Another question did the bike feel better once you fitted headers and mapped it?

So installed the r@g mirror blanking plugs tonight. Literally took seconds. Thought they would be better quality maybe aluminium but they are just plastic blanks with plastic fixings. I suppose that's good weight wise but don't seem quality for £30
Look cool though

Update as haven't put anything on here for a while as been busy with the camper and other projects.
Got a few bits today as with the riding I plan on doing getting closer and closer and the start of the biking season in the U.K. Not far away.
Managed to get a few cool Kawasaki official bits to make life easier and just beacsue I wanted it lol.
First off bought a first aid kit that I can install into the camper, better to be prepared.



Also bought a Kawasaki card holder to stick under my rear cowel so I haven't got to carry a wallet anymore.


Now on to the bike bits. Got a set of gb sliders race version and managed to get them fitted. Installation is was so easy and anyone could attempt this.


Also picked up some racetec British made tyre warmers. Always try to buy British if I can as to support my home economy and push us all forward.



Also got an indoor cover as to keep the dust off the bike when it sits for long periods.


That's it for now but will come back with pictures of my diamond rearsets when they arrive and I fit them.

bikes looking great bud.

whats the cover like quality wise? I fancy one of them myself.

as for the tyre warmers are they on constantly? I've never thought of this but be nice to basically take the bike out the garage and know you can confidently put a bit of power down instead of waiting on them warming up.

The cover is great quality, as it's an indoor cover it's very light and easy to put on and remove.

The tyre warmers don't stay on I just like to come into the garage and see everything ready to go. But before you pop out chuck them on for 20-30 mins and you'll be ready to scream out your road annoying all your neighbours.

Looking forward to getting some free time to chuck on my rear sets. I've been waiting for months to get them sorted.

thanks, I shall look to investing in one.

ah i see, be nice because there is a bike roundabout not far up the road and I've always got to take it easy round it because my tyres are cold and its a nice wide open roundabout so be nice to get some lean but without the heat in the rubber i would be asking for trouble.

look forward to the update. I'm running Gilles titanium sets atm.

Well the difference was night and Day. prior to the remap it made 110 BHP at the rear wheel, after the map it made 118.1 bhp.
The bike breathed so much better once the cat was removed and it was splitting flames on the dyno and it pops on deceleration (hehe)

The bike will get remapped this year once I put the new MWR filter on it to see what gains I get.

The bike is much better to drive on the road.

I can't believe what they charge for these. Seems absurd. I just pulled the mirrors off and leave the bolts in place.
