Nice.

My wife was practically drooling over the green one at the Cycle World show.

We were waiting on one from other dealer, we went out for a Saturday drive and stopped by there shop. Well they had one sitting there "Sold", and deposits on 7 others(so they said). They had a tag saying $3900, now taking deposits. I was like, 3900 + tax & license??? They said yes! So I was like, 7 deposits on 3900 ??? Then two sales guys started yelling at me...... YES - Shipping - set up fees. Anyway, yelling at me is no way to make a sale.

She got to see it, said she wanted one for sure.

Had noticed on the Kawasaki site there was another dealer up north a bit. So we went there, walked in they had a green one sitting there(just the color she wanted now). I asked how much, they said $3499! I said, we'll take it! Also mentioned it was on the floor for two hours, just put it out. Had a list of names they called, but nobody showed up yet.
So our Saturday drive turned into a race to the NavyFCU, back to the house for ramp & tie downs. Then to pick it up before they closed at 2pm. Was a pretty cool day over all

Got them from Bikebandit. The pegs were 27.85 Ea, and the adapters were 35.05 for both. The one site I seen, showed all the adapters for Kawi's had same p/n. I ordered for 02-636, and pegs were universal replacement/adapter use.
Wife loves them, good up-grade

A big to MotoGPracing for the links and guide.

Just ordered and hopefully it'll get here before I pick up my bike this weekend (doubtful but at least I know I'll get them next week).

I'm gonna see if I can have someone fabricate a plate so I can make the rearsets adjustable.

Yeah, I like it too but I really don't understand why more companies don't make full systems. I guess it involves too much $$$ for R&D.
