Kawasaki ER-6F owner report

I purchased my ER-6F in April 2007 and use it to commute through central London to Farnborough. I am a member of the "80 a Day" club. Although I didn't really want ABS, I got it, and like it. This is a commuting bike. My DR-Z400S and Honda Interceptor are for fun. I have had NO frame cracking problems, and...

Cool comments from a fellow...

Kawasaki biker. Good to hear someone get so much from a cheaper bike and not feeling the need to go over the top with the horsepower - respect my friend.

Top Bike..

..ER6F, just the job for traffic busting. Kawasaki have got everything right, it deserves to be the best selling bike of the year.

fairing top panels.

I had to get both plastic fill in panels replaced under warrenty after they cracked. less than 6 months later they are broken again ( check at the screw holes) I have a 2006 er6-f. just wondered if the new bikes have different plastic?

MPG????

What's it like on the jungle juice and does the fairing offer much protection? My Hornet 600 (naked) is shocking if you rev it and it's no fun if you don't! thinking of getting an ER6F as an all year round commuter

plastic panels

each review i read of the er6f and the mpg goes up,70mpg is Honda c50 territory, I hope it's true i've owned a er6f for a month and mostly done short stop start commutes done 430 miles and been to pumps four times but usually only 10ltrs a time which is only 8 gallons overall.as for the plastic panels mines a 2007 model I put on a 08 plate, but the vibration I get particularly on the left panel is on low revs and throtle backs is really getting to me and spoiling my rides,if it was my car making the noises the bike is I'd think the engine was blown.putting my finger on the panel stops it but thats not a good way to ride.It will have to be sorted at 600 mile service.

My new er-6f mpg

Hi there i was wondering if anyone could help me please, I just recently bought a brand new er-6f (LOVE IT:tongue:) and due to being 19 obviously i needed it to be legally restricted. i am keeping it under 4000rpm always as still breaking it in (until next sat then i can take it up to 7000 :biggrin:) but i am currently gettin about 120 miles out of 9litres to 10litres which i work out to be about 52 mpg max? i've read though that this bike is capable of 80mpg... do you think that is because of the restriction that im gettin quite a low mpg or maybe because im underpowering the bike? any help would be greatly appreciated please!!

 

Many Thanks!

Dave
