The backrest tucks in nicely.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

12,638 miles on a set of tires on a big, heavy, powerful 1,352 cc bike??? So far?? You know you could get a Honda Grom and add a windshield and top case and/or side cases, save tons of money on gas, insurance, maintenance, parts, it'd be waaay lighter, etc etc ... and it'd solve your inseam issue.

Yep, haven't you seen the tire thread posts?  My last set of PR4GT's lasted 18,020 miles before replacement.  I suspect the roads in this area are just not as wear-prone to tires.  Also, most of the miles are slab (unfortunately).

And it would be very slow.  Something I am not...

Well last weekend was the Tech day that I hosted at my home.  Got the Throttle Body Synch done.  The center screw was very hard to change and caused much Gnashing of teeth!  There was not huge differences between the 4 banks but they were askew and It was a lengthy process when you count getting the hoses connected and routed to an outside common point.  the actual adjustment was about 1.5 hours but likely won't take nearly as long next time now that I'm familiar with it.   The motor runs noticeably smoother at idle with not much variation.  I'm glad I did it if for no other eason than I know it's done and done right.

Kawasaki needs to add an adjuster to the center screw similar to the idle screw.  There's no reason IMO that a procedure has to be that difficult and with that adjuster it would be about 30 minutes.

Wow, that is a lot longer than I would have expected.
