I don't want to say too much on the internet but I do know of one case where Kawasaki honored a warranty claim with a Flashed ECU just so they could study the data.


Normally they wouldn't.

Well, to keep things in perspective, a 600 would "Murder" an H2 around the track. The H2 really wasn't designed for that. More of a showcase of Kawasaki's engineering prowess.


As far as straight line and sweeper performance, I simply don't think anything out there can touch an 'uncorked' H2.


Yes, I've seen the Vids of S1000s giving H2s fits but the H2 riders were either really overweight or just couldn't ride for beans. Squids doing highway runs and roll-ons that are terribly out of sync are terrible indicators of the performance of these machines.


Brock's H2 was clocked at 219mph. There is simply nothing out there hitting that speed. Period! Not WSBK bikes, nothing! You need a Turbo or Supercharged Busa/ZX14 running tons of boost just to be in the ballpark.


IF I were to get an H2 I probably wouldn't flash the ECU for warranty reasons. I would probably just get a full exhaust, a custom shock made that had ride height adjustability for track days, a PCV, and a custom map for race fuel and that might Give me a genuine 220HP at the wheel. The last 20-40hp from the flash really aren't worth the reliability concerns that come with that tune.

Turbo329 :....and an H2 melted a piston around these parts.


Everybody's having issues.

TLRSKUNK I mean at least they are fixing it unlike all the Kawi 600/636 owners that had trans issues constantly and the early ZX10's that had tons of trans failures...

Also BMW is having trans issues on one of their models. with very similar issues.

From what i'm reading it sounds like the gear manufacture screwed up the heat treating part of it.

sburns2421 2015 Yamaha YZF-R1 Recall Will Affect All Units Sold in USA

Saw this today that the transmission issues affect all US and Canada models of the R1 and it takes almost 16 hours to change it. Huge expense and I would wager more than one will be put together wrong and actually worse than when it left the factory.

I know Yamaha is trying to be proactive and get this resolved quickly, but this looks very bad. Not unlike the first Aprilia RSV4 engines going bang due to faulty connecting rods and Aprilia exchanged hundreds of engines. Not sure if Aprilia has actually recovered the reputation of the bike since to be honest.

R1/R1M might be the same, at least the 2015 models will be ones to avoid on the secondhand market, even if that is unfair.

Sweet!!! THAT is a cool color scheme for the R1... If I wasn't super happy with my Beemer, I would seriously consider the R1 you are getting. Enjoy!
