For Sale / Re: Free: Stock 2009 windshield with under 3k miles

I'll take it.  PM incoming...

If it is comfortable after 100 miles, you have the touring seat. If you feel as if you are a contestant on the new hit reality series, "A$$ Torture Survivor," then you have the stock seat.

Is the picture that fartymarty posted the same seat you received? That is the Touring  seat, $650 @ Partzilla 😳, they were like $420 when I first looked for one and I bought a used one for $350ish!

Thanks for the descriptive help. I can't seem to get my pics to attach. Comparing the seat to stock photos and the accessory catalog photos, the 53066 "looks" like the 99994 touring seat. Stitching and cover matches. But I do not have a stock seat to compare thickness. The p/n 99994 is nowhere on the seat pan, only the 53066 number.

Regardless, it does not make sense for the same seat to have two different part numbers and Iisted in two different sections of the parts diagrams. Overthinking? Probably. If it weren't such an expensive seat I'd mount it up and try it but then I own it.

Am I wrong to expect factory parts to have only one specific part number?

Seems to me the seat should only have one part number! A guy was trying to sell a seat on eBay as a Kawasaki touring seat  and it wasn’t one, I,let him know but he left the add up the same.

Accessories and Modifications - C10 / Re: LED headlight
« Last post by Boomer on July 06, 2020, 01:31:45 am »
Of the ones I tested I found the best ones had rows of 3 or 4 dots and a kind of lip or cup for the dipped beam end (farthest from the base).
These lines of 3/4 LEDs best simulate the filaments in a halogen bulb and so most closely replicate their pattern in a conventional headlight.


This gives a good clean flat cut off and makes it less likely that you will dazzle other road users.
Certainly I never get "flashed" by oncoming cars when I am on dipped beam.
Once you have fitted the LED you will probably need to adjust the headlight as their "filament" positioning is not always perfect.
I had to adjust mine down substantially but compared to the halogen it replaced,...well lets just say I'm not going back.  ;D

The Bike - C14/GTR 1400 / Re: how many miles until you hit reserve?

This has got to be a record, no?  2777 days between posts in the same thread?

Just picked the most appropriate thread instead of unnecessarily creating another one :)

I think this must show how important that C14 owners think fuel mileage is.  :D

Not really.  I don't care about mileage all that much, until it matters (like when running low on fuel).

I have a touring seat, post a picture of the one you received and let’s compare.

For Sale / Taken: Stock 2009 windshield with under 3k miles
« Last post by SVonhof on July 05, 2020, 03:01:34 pm »
Just pay shipping from Central California (or pick up).

It is pretty clean since it has had little use and was stored in a special bag that the CalSci XL came in since I got the bike in 2010. Just cleaning out the garage and figured if somebody has a use for it, I would pass it on.

Difficult to get a non-blurry image because of it being shiny and transparent, but here is what I got:


The box under it is what it will be shipped in.

Yeah, and besides this is no where near a record- I have been maybe 60K, 70K, maybe even more miles since I hit 'reserve' (low fuel warning on  a C-14).
