I recently picked up a zero mile new old stock Kawasaki Mean Streak for a great price from a dealer friend.

I have tooled around on it just a bit, but not enough to really say much other than it sure rides like a much smaller bike, in fact it sits and handles better around town than the old 900 I had for a while.

Snap the throttle and it is quite a bit of fun for an old geezer! It smokes most of the guys I ride with.

What are the issues with the Mean Streak?

What maintenance or reliability issues am I facing?

Anyone know the real reason Kawasaki dropped it from their lineup?

1. Addictive!
2. It (the engine) couldn't stand the environmental regulations. (Don't know the correct english term for it)

I have an 04. I love this bike. The biggest down side for me was taking long trip with the wife. Anything over two hundred miles in a day was to much. She needed more leg room. So we bought a Royal Star Venture for riding two up. I take the MS when I ride solo.
