I have (or had?) a chance to get a 1970’s KZ-1000 with 4,000 miles on it. It was a bit beat up from sitting, but who cares? Right?
It was shaft driven. Are there any downfalls to shaft driven motorcycles?
I’ve never owned or driven one.
Also, I’ve read that others say, if you need to stop quickly on a KZ, pray you don’t have to.
Is that predominately at high speeds, or is that an all-the-time kind of thing with the KZ?
I would think it would have ok stopping power at low speeds, but I could be wrong?
It’s either a KZ, or an endouro 650, they are both about the same price.
Tough decision, eh?
