    Hello Kat Riders from Wichita, Kansas!

    I've been a member of this site for a while now and finally decided to post. I bought a 2006 600 Katana brand new 3 years ago and love it! I removed the stickers, threw on a new pipe and windscreen, and got rid of the ugly "mudflap" and replaced it with a hugger fender. I don't get to ride very much more than back and forth to work, but I enjoy every minute.

    That is a score...they have never had anything in stock when I've needed it. I had a fairing bolt that was rounded off (probably done when they servied the back last year) that I couldn't get out so I had to drill it out. I'm not holding my breath but hopefully they will have one.

    A lot do, but you may also be seeing multiple groups that come and go, not one group staying there all the time.

    I'm currently rebuilding carbs on my Kat, so I'm out of commission till probably next week. I did have some good news today, MAP has the rubber plugs I need to replace in my carbs in stock, so I won't have to wait

    I meet up with some sport bike riders at the QT at Douglas & Washington sometimes. A variety of groups collect there, so you can find one to match your riding style.

    Check out the forums at wksportbike.com (regional sportbike board). They're a pretty good group, I rode around with them on an '84 Shadow (cruiser) until just this month.

    I'm painting a variation of the real fire look...it will look something like this when it is done.
