  • New Katana owner and new user on KR

    Hello all!

    I hope to be talking and discussing with all of you soon. I just purchased a '98 (Red) Katana 600 with 7K miles. I just got done installing a bolt-on Yoshi Carbon fiber exhaust. Everything else is pretty much stock. While I'm posting, I have a question: Has anyone installed or seen the indiglo gauges for the Katana? They look pretty sweet on the product website. Opinions? Install difficulty?

    Also, similar question. I don't seem to have a clock on my bike.. I suppose this is normal. There is an empty gauge on my bike with the 'Suzuki' logo. Wonder what happened? Anyways, hope to talk with everyone soon! I've been lurking for a few days and decided it's for my benefit to sign up.

      First Welcome to KR!!!

      The indiglo gauges are very easy to install and are great. They do require the removal of the fairings so that you can get access to the front headlight and dash assembly but once that is done there is nothing to it. They have great instructions.

      All the 98 600's did not have a clock while the 750's did. The only solution to this would be to install a 750 dash

        The one thing that has frustrated me with the Katana so far is getting the bike on the center stand. I'm sure many of you are laughing at this, but I'm sure some have had issues when they first got their bike. Any tricks? I know balance comes into play, and rocking it backwards doesnt seem to help too much =/ My old dirt bike stand definately doesnt work either, I will just eventually learn this centerstand!

          Thanks UFO. Haggisman - Thanks for the info. I may purchase them shortly. I love both your bikes btw. Those visual mods on the Kat really flow.

                The stand is tricky, you need to almost get your body into it, takes practise thats all.

                    Welcome fellow Tennesseean. The center stand is just something learned. Glad you like the site and decided to join up. Just about every subject is coverd and can be found with the search button. Once again welcome to KR and enjoy the ride.

                    P.S. There is going to be a Rally up at the GAP in July for the site. Check out the forum for that.

                      Thanks Highsight,
                      I will most likely go to the rally, I definately want to see your bike. The Gap is only a short drive from my home.

                        Welcome to KR. Get on eof your buddies to ride shotgun on the right side of the bike & practice putting the bike on the centerstand. By the 4th or 5th time it'll seem like old hat.

                              Hey any chance you get make mention of how close to the GAP you are to Need4Speed. It drives him nuts. I get to Knoxville ever so often with work. I work for TEMA and we have a an office up there. I think everybody wants to see my bike for some reason. I just hope I can keep it in one piece for the rally. You live in KNOX county right? I know the GAP is over in BLOUNT county. So that would put you at the GAP in about what 20-30 minutes tops?
