Don't know that I will ever make it down that way, but it sure would be a good time.Bobx2
If you’re ever in northern Baja with your rig please look me up. Love to see the rig after you’ve accessorized it.
PS that rig looks like it would kick butt on the “Frog Canyon” trail
No, for whatever reason they don't come with a rear gate, just like the rest of the sport UTV's. I don't understand the reasoning behind it, but that's how it is. Kawi has a couple of OEM options for it, but neither one open and really can't be modified to do so since they are a molded plastic. I will end up with something like SuperATV has for the KRX. That is something I could modify to open if nothing else come out for it that opens.Bob is there no endgate on your rig or did you take it off?
It is incredibly smooth. Had no idea what I was missing with the relatively short, a-arm suspension on all four corners. It's a whole new learning experience driving this thing. I pulled the front sway bar off and I can really feel a difference out on the track. With the General, I really couldn't feel any more lean when cornering hard. Good stiff rear sway bar. With the trailing arm rear suspension, the rear sway bar mounts to the trailing arm at about the 1/3 point, roughly 1 foot from where the arm connects to the frame. That leaves about 2 feet from the mount to the hub, which gives it tremendous leverage to allow flex in the rear suspension. I can feel the lean.... The result is a perfect setup for rough, rocky terrain and a not so perfect setup for track use. Fortunately, I bought it for rough, rocky terrain riding with only a rare trip out to the track. :grin2:OMG Bob, cool video! The KRX looks smooth. The trail kinda reminds me of a short 46 mile trail we have down here from the turn off from El Arco to Viscano with the exception that trail is banked the whole way (like a slot car track) the KRX would rock it, heck even my ole fat lumbering General rocked it
Looks like attempt #1 went well for the KRX. Finished #5 overall, and first in the non-turbo class. Not a single Honda made the first page...Bobx2
They’ll be racing them, it’s In Kawasaki’s blood and with the announcement that Honda is putting together a full factory effort for their Talons, it’s just a matter of time.
I’m not a big “more power guy” because I’d venture to say most of us don’t have the skills to drive our rigs to their full potential, so Bobx2 drive this new machine to the best of your skills and if you get time, please check in time to time with your thoughts and impressions.
Have a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year
