Just for your viewing pleasure

Kawasaki x2, 750 small pin. Best performance was 7200/7300 rpms 53/54 mph.

Was just cruising around, maybe 1/2 throttle. Starting missing. Went to shore checked plugs.... nope, not the issue.

Was 3 to 4 miles away from a thing. Made it home under it's own power.

The top end was old and loose. I knew it was going to go at some point. Just didnt realize it would be so dramatic...

Shopping list now inclues,
New cases-
New crank-
New pistons-
Fresh bore and hone-
New gaskets-

Oddly enough what's not on the list is new domes for the ada head, they were untouched by this.


Part of me wants to go back to a 760 in the x2. It was an absolute rocket with that motor. But I have a bunch of goodies for the kawi motor... lightened flywheel, msd enhancer, ada head, rebuilt e box by jss.
