Thumbs up hello ninjas

I am with you Bill, was at the local wreckers a while back, walked in thought That's a H2
The guy told me no write off, clear title, now its mine. Looking forward to having it up and running.
Before this I have mostly stuck to the Gsxr's, I have really enjoyed reading the forum
and checking out the youtubes some of you guys have put up. For me I like the technical side
of the bikes, finding out about the different set ups, what works and why.

New to here and am looking hard at the Z H2. I've ridden a number of Harleys, Yamahas, and own a Thruxton 1200 R. What's everyone's take on it? How's everyone's H2 treating them? Thanks!

22K miles on my 2015.No issues.Akra muffler(shorty).No sound chamber below.Flashed by Guhl.PCV setup from Brock's.Runs great.PLENTY of power(and fun).Kawasaki reliable.Seat redone for mileage.Have no idea the HP at this point,or TQ.But I'll never get her up to the limits.I think the Z model will NOT be as strong as the H2.But probably plenty of fun regardless.It is a different beast.

h2madness!

It's not really comparable to anything, you have to own one for a few thousand miles to understand. Most reviewers are 'wanabe's". Unless you are a very good rider it will at some time scare the sh*t out of you!



Mine treats me just fine because I respect it.

23,000 miles on mine and it has been pretty much flawless. Absolutely love this bike. It is hard to ride anything else. Because they all feel so weak in comparison.
SilverbirdH2 and H2015 like this.

yeah.Ya got that right.My 14R gets the switch for LONG LONG term rides.But my H2 gets everything in between.I guess riding all day is a 'long' ride?For me it's fine.Maybe about 4-500 a ride.I switch to my 14 once in a while.But it's similar in power a feel...so I'm good.

h2madness!

They are not a long range cruiser, if you have time to look at the scenery then your riding the wrong bike, I use my 1100 for that.

The H2 is a very angry bike and has to be ridden with a little aggression.

"The H2 is a very angry bike and has to be ridden with a little aggression".

Whattaya mean 'a little aggression'?I wouldn't exactly say mine is mean.More like,it knows it's the king and doesn't mind 'checking out the scenery' once in a while.I do all day rides all the time between 65 mph and 190mph.Mine is VERY comfortable.I redid the seat way back when just for cruising long rides.It cruises wonderfully.

ALMOST as smooth (suspension wise)as my 14r.Think it's the bike length and weight.Vibration wise..they're equal...virtually none.

h2madness!

For me I need a more padded seat to keep my mind of a sore butt when doing long rides. A bit off aggression takes my mind off of it, that's what!
