Isn't that why the regulator rectifier recall only applies to certain bikes within that generation? Now, it's entirely possible that my dude's bike is just tuned nicely enough to where all of the quirks weren't noticeable. I'm no expert. I just know that when I rode yours, it wasn't nearly as enjoyable and it felt a lot more subdued than the one I rode yesterday. A nice bit of handling, a nice smooth unrestrained power curve, etc.
mmmmkaaayy... lol.

"Mechanically identical" - From the mouth of the Kawasaki western regional service manager that services both dealers I've worked at in the last few years.

Again... suspension setup probably had a lot to do with that. I also thought I noticed his bike had the stock exhaust? If so... good reason why it pulls better in the mid range rpms.

You probably didn't like mine because it wasn't setup for you. It was setup for me. And I ride a shit ton harder than you do kiddo.

Lol I'm not gonna measure dicks with you, kiddo. My understanding is that there MAY have been some mapping changes in 2010. But that's what I heard from MY source, if ya want to be silly about it. But in the end who REALLY gives a shit?

I guess the moral of the story is that I liked his better than yours.

To be fair, I actually didn't intend it that way but I found the irony pretty damn hilarious.
