Another Aussie

G'day All!


I'm Don from Down Under, have a brand new left over 2015 H2 on order, (last one in Aust. I believe) should be in the local dealer's by end of April.


Been lurking on the forum for the past year, so have got a lot of useful info for future mods and what to look out for with maintenance/servicing etc. I see there are a few other Aussies on here, not sure if any in South Aust. though.


At the moment I have already got the Evotech tail tidy and radiator guard, have been looking into paint protection - the only option where I live is to get a pre-cut stencilled 3M kit that covers virtually all the bodywork plastics, as no local automotive place here that specialises in professional fitting (that I can find anyway).


The bike will come with the Akrapovic slip on as part of the dealer package, but I have already contacted Vandemon and discussed their new polished H2R replica exhaust - looks similar to Stradale's hand polished exhaust that I can tell, but will see! Also looking at the Sprint air filter.


I'm aware of the potential frame rust spot in the bracing gusset on the 2015 so will look out for that and attend as needed. And also aware of the rear wheel/axle mounting issue where members have noticed a loosening of the wheel possibly due to the inner securing nut not being tight enough!


This bike will be company for my A1 zx12r (with 1287 kit), and will be taking it to Phillip Island for my yearly 2 day track ride in November - can't wait!


Anyway I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions in the future - very informative site with noted professional advice (Brock etc.).


Cheers,


Don.

Don,
Hi mate welcome to the forum! That 2015 you ordered is that the one that was up in Darwin Northern Territory? If it is I was interested in that one last November and was offered a super deal, but decided getting one locally here in Sydney instead and went for the 16 anyway.
Looks like your already pretty well informed, yeh this forum has plenty of info.
When do you expect to get the bike?
Cheers mate

Jeffro, yep the one from Holeshot Kawasaki Darwin, getting it sent to S.A.Kawasaki near me (the only H2/H2R dealer in S.A. I believe).


Also got a good deal on it, and was going to get it sent down myself, but I would have to then get it inspected pre-registration etc. so the cost was about the same as getting the local dealer to get it down and do the rego etc.


The dealer here will do Woolich mapping on the ECU, and are fitting Vandemon exhausts to other owner's H2's - if I get one I'll put it on myself as I like to have as much hands-on as possible. They are heavily involved in the Aust. racing scene with bikes in Superbike and the Ninja 300 series.

Yeh right, from memory I think they offered it to me for 32K then when I refused ( as I got even a better deal on the 16) they went to 30K the next day. By the time I brought it 4500kms from Darwin with transport costs and rego I didn't worry about it. Anyway that's history now, I am happy with what I got and I am sure you will be happy with yours!
Keep us updated...
