Driveline Lash
« on: September 16, 2017, 05:55:43 pm »
There is a thread on the C14 section about driveline lash. A number of people (including myself) wonder how the C10 and C14 compare to each other in this regard.

http://forum.cog-online.org/concours-14-zg1400-general-chat-and-tech/driveline-lash-71937/

When I demoed the C14 in johnson City, it felt like the C14 had more lash than my C10 (with about 60,000 miles on it at that time). I commented that to who I think was the lead Kawasaki person; he told me he knew exactly what I was talking about, but that the specs on the C14 were for less lash than the C10.

Can some of you mguys measure this on the C10 in the same way as people have measured the C14 nd post here?
It would be very interesting to compare the numbers.
To measure you stand on it, and while in 1st gear, roll as far forward s you can, mark the spot where the tire is on the floor, the roll backwards and do the same thing. Measure the distance between the marks.

WOW! we're doing research on the forum! :rotflmao:

OK... here's what I think has been measured so far (please keep in mind that there is some variation since we're not all going to do it EXACTLY the same).

C10              C14        Submitter

                     2.5"       khager01
3"                               Pbfoot
                     3.75"    Jorge

PS: I'm posting in the C14 area also.
