Kawasaki ER6n - silver and black - modified - asking 185,000 THB
- 649 cc
- Model year 2010, first sold by the dealer in 2011. I'm the 3rd owner, Greenbook all in order, in my name
- currently has done only 12,8xx km
- tax and mandatory minimum insurance paid up until April 2019
- first class insurance paid up until February 2019
- last oil + filter change April 2018 at Piston shop
- Since I've owned it, the bike has always been stored under roof and covered, never sat still longer than 10 days at a time. Never had an unexpected issue, always starts first time. I've never crashed it or dropped it. Runs and feels as good as you'd expect any proper ER6 with less than 13k km would feel regardless of age.
- I bought it in April 2017 when it had just 9,7xx km. The 2 previous owners as shown in the greenbook are both male farang, aged about 50 and 70 years old respectively, and acquainted with each other. I was told the bike had been dropped once in its life (on a slope while stationary) but never crashed. Reason for sale by second owner; too heavy for an older man like himself.
- Upon purchase I took the bike to Piston shop for a thorough checking just to be sure; flushed and replaced all the fluids like engine oil, brake fluid, radiator coolant, front forks fluids etc, fuel tank cleaned, sealed the front forks, brake pads front and rear, brake cables, wheel bearings front and rear, and new Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires front and rear. I cannot stress enough how awesome these tires are! The further the bike is leaning down through a corner, the grip just gets better and better. This is because the shape of the tire viewed from the back is more oval than typically round. It makes the bike tip in easier from center balance point because of a 'pointer' contact patch. But as the bike leans over further the contact patch between rubber and road becomes bigger and thus offers increasing grip at higher speeds. The easier tip-in feeling makes the bike feel lighter and more nimble while rolling through traffic, and is just as good a feeling for many switch back corners on a smaller mountain road. Also, the bike has shed over 15kg in dry weight with all listed modifications.
-Next I had the original seat refitted with foam and covered with fresh leather. The riders seat back edge is now slightly further back to allow for a taller guy like myself (195cm) to slide back a bit for legroom while cruising but still keeping the flat surface towards the front of the seat for more aggressive riding ergonomics as an option also. Rider seat surface area is raised up a little less than 1 cm. Fits shorter people just the same as it is now but also easy to make it fit to your arse specifically if you like. I'll tell you where I had it done for a couple thousand.
- I've got 3 different handlebars available for this bike, all included in the sale. The first is the standard factory bars, too narrow and low for my size, but otherwise in perfect condition. The second is an original ProTaper 800mm in perfect condition, kind of 'scrambler style' look for this bike. It didn't offer enough sweep for my liking after some cruising time so I bought another online from a Chinese manufacturer along with raisers (Brand name Mofaner). This setup is a little lower and narrower (780mm) than the Protaper setup but with more sweep for easier elbow angles. Overall the preferable ergonomic setup I've calibrated thus far.
- new headlight and brackets to clip on to front forks, LED daytime running lights white color, hi/lo beam white color (original headlight comes with the bike)
- changed the bike body color from red to silver and black. The change has been properly registered in the greenbook. (original headlight still has red color)
- frame sliders, swingarm sliders, X-mount for phone, tail tidy, radiator protector, bar end weights, new original Rizoma bar end mirrors (doesn't fit on Chinese bars, currently using original mirrors with bar end weights), adjustable clutch lever and front brake lever (adjustable by length of grip as well as how hard the squeeze is. Factory parts also comes with the bike)
- new original Delkevic UK exhaust slip-on with custom link pipe made. The slip-on has a removable db killer, which I've never removed.
- new original BMC air filter installed.
- new original Power Commander 5. fuel and ignition 2in1 controller. Overrides the factory ecu 'plug n play' style. Unplug it and everything falls back to original factory settings automatically. This unit also plugs into the versys 650 and ninja 650 models of the same generation. In combination with the new exhaust and new air filter, this tiny but expensive add-on gave new life to this bike. On the dyno it showed about 60 hp before and after I got it near to its original 70 hp. (can go to 75hp, even heard forum claims of 80+, not recommended for long term use). Can be retuned to suit your riding style at a dyno shop here in Chiang Mai or with a Power Commander autotune add-on kit which you could order online. Another add-on that I have included is a "map switch" installed on the handlebar left cluster next to the turn indicator switch. It allows the rider to switch between 2 preloaded fuel maps while riding. As is loaded now, tuned to the current equipment (exhaust and air filter), map #1 is running slightly lean to offer a little better fuel economy, eco friendlier, and also better balanced air/fuel ratios when at higher altitudes running on fun mountain roads. Map #2 is a more aggressive fuel map that adds cool gurgling sounds out of the exhaust under deceleration as well as a noticeable boost of power above 7k rpm with a full twist of the throttle. Metaphorically speaking, this engine breathes/performs like a professional athlete that trains at high altitudes but competes at low altitudes :p
- recently got a new Pirelli Diablo Rosso III front tire after running over a screw. Less than 1,000 km on it so far. Back tire has just over 3,000 km but still looks almost new.
- the state of the chain is debatable. I don't know its age in yrs or kms. With proper care it can easily last another 5,000 km. Keep an eye on it.
- All original parts are included with the bike. It can be converted back to its original state quickly/easily, with the exception of the seat shape and the new body color compared to the original headlight color
