My son and D-I-L have cats but make no mistake, they are his, especially the small one (Chloe). A while back they were staying with us while relocation, and went to the city they were moving to (400 miles from where I live but 3,000 miles from where they were living at the time) and left the cats with us. The cats were pretty cool with me and my wife and would hang around but were not interested in too much interaction (read: do not touch me). But on the third day I think, the small one, Chloe, got 'horny for humans' and jumped up in my lap, insisting I stop everything and cater to her. She actually walked up my chest and just 'let go'; if I did not catch her, she would have fallen to the floor. Still not close enough, she crawled into my neck and laid there for quite a while, eyes closed tight, singing and 'playing piano' (whatever you call it) in my shirt. She showed zero interest in my wife, only me (as I said, she is tight with my son only so apparently likes males).

Of course I tell him his cat is a wh...... er, a 'cat of ill repute' and will 'snuggle' with any human available after he is gone 5 minutes. :-)

But again, whatever floats one's boat regarding pets: dogs, cats, birds, snakes (I guess), whatever. I have a soft- spot for dogs, a big one, and get along with <almost> all of them, even the obnoxious ones.

Actually, now that I think about it, I have cats, I am a man, and I am a bit crazy... maybe I could be....

Like Brian, I have never heard of this issue before.  You didn't say WHICH oil....  if it is related to the clutch (and I am not saying it is), keep in mind that generally you should use a motorcycle grade oil (synthetic or not) because it has the right amount of additives for wet clutches.

You should add the model year to your signature and/or avatar (and minimally each post), and also indicating how many miles on the bike would also be useful for those trying to help you.

Duly noted, sir.  AMSoil Synthetic 10W-40, I do not know what type of gear oil is being used right now.  I bought it from a friend.  I'll check with him. 

Thank you.

Well first, I did not call you 'the crazy cat man'.

Second, I do not think there is a minimum number of cats you have to own to be called a crazy cat man.

Third, remember, I am 'pulling your tail' a bit so take it for what it is worth: nothing. All in good fun (for me anyway).

Fourth: nothing wrong with cats. I like 'em myself. I do not own any, and prefer dogs. but would not rule out owning cats. And I can usually 'make nice' with them when found in the semi- wild (someone else's house).

Funny story: up until very recently, a young woman living next to me had a boxer and a cat. Now it took a year 'cause the boxer is really, really timid but eventually it got so I could touch her (Easy Boys! it is a dog for cryin' out loud). She would come w/in about 10' from the front of my garage and watch me work on the bike with her 'stump' wagging at 100 MPH but no closer, and if I moved toward her, she gave ground to maintain that 10 feet. Anyway, finally, we are buds and every night she comes to my house, scratches on the door to be let in, visits, has two bones (I stock Milk Bones for [not my own] dogs), hangs out a while and then leaves. Now the dog's owner's cat is really the dog's cat, and wherever that dog is, the cat is w/in 10'.... except in my house. He comes to the door, clearly wants to come inside (where 'his' dog is) but cannot quite bring himself to step over the threshold. Funny to watch. It usually provided one of my three required 'yucks' per day.

At least I only have two cats, so I can't yet be called "that crazy cat man"

I finished the first season of Daredevil and was pleasantly surprised.  In many ways it is as good or better than The Flash.  I am about 1/3 into the second season and it isn't progressing as well as the first, but it is still early.  But I give it my "thumbs up".

Season 2, while not amazing, it isn't as good as season 1.
Jessica Jones (only season 1) was also amazing.
The other two are good, but not great, but you may find them necessary prior to watching Defenders.

As far as the crazy and annoyed thread, I think you may be OK but Max still has that 'when I wear my helmet in my house it confounds the cats' thing following him around. So he was already half- way to the crazy thread. Er, I mean the crazy and annoyed thread.  ;D

If you'd like to watch it, make sure you watch Daredevil,

I finished the first season of Daredevil and was pleasantly surprised.  In many ways it is as good or better than The Flash.  I am about 1/3 into the second season and it isn't progressing as well as the first, but it is still early.  But I give it my "thumbs up".

Just watched "The Lost City of Z" last night and was underwhelmed.  Seemed to drag and lacked something, and the ending was predictably disappointing.

Hi, new to the forum here.


Welcome!

Thirdly, is there one good fix to lower the pegs that you have heard? 


Not really.  If you have long legs, your best option is to get a taller seat.

And finally, any other suggestions or things you think I should look into being a newbie?


Of course, you should definitely read the owner's manual.  The Concours has a lot of interesting features.  http://www.kawasaki-techinfo.net/showOM.php?view_lang=EN&spec=US&book_no=99987-1748&lang_code=EN
