I hate to be "that guy", but the bike in the pics is a 1979...1978 had mid mounted number-plates and a different shock body. The lateral finned aluminum body shock was 1979. Maybe check serial numbers, anyone can modify some parts and pieces, but these ... more »

Nice job on the Kawi Steve, if you really want a beast engine try a Boyesen V-Force. I added one to my 2006 and "WOW"! Ran an FMF Gnarley and the short silencer and it was a rocket for sure.
