Default Building a Kawasaki H2A (750 triple)

5 minute factory video, funny that they don't mention the epithet "Widowmaker", which it shared with the H1.

I love those Japanese factory videos. There's an excellent one on YT from Suzuki about the RE5.

Great video, thoroughly enjoyed it (along with the backing music which sounded like it could be straight out of an episode of The Saint or something)

BTW the 500 was no different, from what i can remember you could actually feel the frame bend beneath you when giving it serious beans. its a very long time since i had a go on one but the 750 scare the living crap out of me.. not so much for the speed but the complete inadequacy of the bike. yes it was fast at the time in a straight line but fuk it was scary in corners and braking.

best 2t i ever had the priv of riding was an RG 500 Stan Stevens stage 3. that thing was scary fast. the only thing at the time it would not pas was a petrol station, fuker went through a gallon in a mile at full chatt.

I was behind a couple of Bikers on Kawasaki 750s and one of them smelt a bit like a two-stroke.Luckily we pulled into same Car-park coffee shop I was stopping in for a break.
Got chatting and one of them likes the 2-Stroke smell so puts a bit of 2-Stroke oil in his petrol just for the memories
