This is the first Kawasski I have owned that didn't have a positive neutral finder. BUT I know why this doesn't have one. A positive neutral finder (with a 1 down X up) is some ball bearings that use centrifugal force to get out of the way when the counter shaft is moving. Those ball bearings receptacles are drilled into the gear that engages 2nd and when stopped the ball fall into holes in the shaft and gear can't engage. The H2 transmission uses dog rings and the gears do not move from side to side. A neutral finder would make the dog rings too thick and bulky and probably compromise them, and maybe bend the shift forks. The forks are very thin and a heavy foot could bend them."hidden neutral!" LOL. If I had a TFT on there from the start,I would probably really like it....I rode that SE.The display really was just too busy for me.They may have done better just having the info saved in there(as they do) and made the screen a bit less cluttered.I **** sure aren't gonna be checking my lean or my 'bike attitude' or front/rear brake application amount while I'm riding.lol.
And I'm not quite sure why Kawasaki didn't include a 'positive N finder' on there(2015's).Seems simple to do?I was surprised at that actually.But not bummed.I added a washer between the throttle tube end and the bar end.Adjusted the bar end for a bit of friction on the tube.Works great for removing that snatchiness.So simple.Don't even notice anything's a bit different.Throttle still performs like a stock 'normal' one would be(on any other bike that is ):laugh:
My original H2's positive neutral finder was neutral was at the bottom it was a 5 up trans.
