Well after 4 years of begging and 3 years of marrage my wife is letting me get my first bike.

By my name and where im writting this at you can guess what bike I have picked.

my brother in law has a 82 550 Ltd that i rode today( it was like 40* f here in ohio!) man I was impressed with the power!

This will be my first street bike.

I'm thinking I better start with a 550 or 750, and move up to the 1000 next summer.

luckely I have a heated gradge to work on the bike this winter.

with that in mind, only thing I didnt like about the bike, is the lack of drag pipes..........anyone make a set, or is it somthing im gonna have to fab up..

Ohio_LDT,

Welcome to the forum....look on the frame of the bike .....it will tell you exactly which model you have......Example...My Spectre is a ZK750-N1 our 550 is a KZ550A

Check around and see if you can get a hold the the manual for it. This will help you do maintenance on the bike. I have one for both of our Kawasakis.


Definitely interested in seeing some pics of you and your bike :D

Ride Sane, Ride Safe

Welcome to the forum. I have 2 LTD's. One is a 440 1981 with 325 miles and the other is a 1000. I think the 550 or 750 would make you a great first bike. If I can help let me know.
