The order of photos is at first confusing, it was a blue bagger, now its stock? Lol, I got it now, blue bagger currently? Nice job looks sunny and beautiful there, wish I could say the same about here!
I decided to make some changes to my 08 Mean Streak over the winter. Not sure what I wanted to do but I wanted to do something. Quite honestly I was getting tired of the handle ars and the riding position. I know the handlebars are so distinctive and a good part of what makes a Meanie a Meanie, but I found the riding position so uncomfortable that I was giving serious consideration to trading for something else. I Started researching handlebars and risers and combinations that would give a greater pull back, something with grips more perpendicular to the body, and something that would not require me to change out out existing brake and clutch hardware and lines. I ended up going with Emgo 1in. Street Sport Rise Handlebar - Chrome. I coupled this handlebar with a standard 2" riser. I took it out for about a 50 mile jaunt today after getting it back together. It was like riding and falling in love with a new bike. This coupled with the new Progressive 412 shocks that lowered the bike about 2 1/2" and I was in Hog Heaven.... Anyway, thought I would share some pictures of the changes if anyone is interested.
I put down a Sherwin Williams epoxy armor shield floor a couple of years ago. Love it. Oil and gas wipe right off of it and I have dropped tools on it, scoot chairs on it, drive on it, it really holds up well. Thanks for noticing. Rg
New to the group, hi to all! Still have some tank repair to do as you can see but I made the chin fairing from scratch at work and rattle can painted it with truck bed liner. Looks like something out of mad maxx! I love it! Best bike I have ever ridden!
Ya, stock color, it's a metallic black. Pretty sure it's different from the black in all the other years. Lots of various color sparkles in it. It looks kinda grey in the strong sunlight like these pics.
fender fab is almost done.....need my brother-in-law to weld a cople of nuts to the under part so that i can secure my edge tail light and then paint.....here's a pic of her late last year with the shorty rear virago fender fab:
Hi all, new here. Finally got the bike I've wanted for some time! 4th ride out the open throttle cable broke at the grip. Took it all apart but found that Kawasaki is no longer producing (discontinued) this part. Seem kind of early to stop parts production for a 13 yr old bike. Especially...
so I went and took off my plate holder and turn signals, and went with a side mount plate bracket... now im terrified im going to get hit, but I cant seem to find many accessories other then an integrated tail light by TOPZONE. If anyone is running that or got any other options or suggestions...
My 2007 meanstreak kinda bogs down/loses power on the freeway and it only really happens around 70+. Will be steady on the throttle and it will just cut off for a split second and then continue on its way. Any ideas?
