I'm gonna say...H2.Busa and 14 are real similar handling and all.The h2 doesn't actually need anything for a kickass bike.Stock way better than a Busa...OR 14R(which I also have).Ya get into turboing the busa or 14,very different.Can't escape the weight factor though.I don't think I'd enjoy a turboed 14 actually.The H2 can be slimmed down pretty well.Mine sits at 480 lbs full fuel.Makes a noticeable difference tell ya that.

what was the biggest weight adjustment or part besides exhaust that made the most dif? Carbon fiber everything? Im 260 so I would also like to shed a few lbs if not crazy expensive.

The best bang for the buck as far as weight goes which if you think about it is stop eating McDonalds, KFC and all that other rubbish. Loose weight which lowers the Fulcrum point and weight to power ratio and you get to spend more money on devaluing your H2. Why do you think the Jockeys in horse racing are so light? The horses go faster that's why.



Check the difference in weight of standard over carbon fibre, calculate how long it would take to loose the same weight, ie, not eating between meals and the math will show that all the weight saving bling offered is just to get your hand in your wallet.



Want to go faster, just flash the ECU (and get your BMI under control), best bang for the buck.
NOLA and andreas_nor like this.

I was told it was flashed upon purchasing secondhand. But Im not sure I believe him. Has full brocks slashcut and a pc5 installed. Is there anyway to know without taking it to a tuner. If i were to take it to a tuner are they able to flash it and tune it or does the flash already need done before I take it. He gave me a video and a picture of it on a dyno and his dyno sheet says 242 whp. Is that even possible without a flash? The dyno guy he had it at also told him there was room for improvement. Im not sure how to tell or if any of its true TBH

More or less a bad attempt at him taking a picture of the screen at the dyno place he was at.

Okay.Has the rev limiter been raised?'Most' flashed ecu's have the limiter at 14,200.I did hear however that kawasaki raised the limiter to about that...but can't remember if it was an H2 or H2SXSE.Factory limit on at least the 2015's was 13,000.Is there anything on that sheet that verifies this particular bike?242 is good.But I'm not seein RPMs or anything.No specs on this run.

Apparently Kawasaki did raise the limiter by 2K on later models.But I only found the 2019's?I don't see anything referring to 15K...that would be 2K higher than stock.Doesn't sound right.Maybe someone will post up some facts?

From what I see the limiter has been raised form 12,600(2018) to 13,150 (2019).

The rev limit of the H2 is ~13000 RPM. The H2R is ~14000 RPM. With centrifugal superchargers, the boost rises with engine speed, so the H2R already has a boost advantage with the extra RPMs. From guhl motors back in 2015 posted here from when he was developing the first h2 flash
