    Ninja Riders Club :: Topic review - Anyone know anything about the Kawasaki Eliminator ?

    Kawasaki EL Eliminator. The Kawasaki EL is no ordinary mini-custom. Its engine begs to be thrashed, it doesn't look cheap and - shock horror - the brakes work. They are bought by newly qualified riders wanting to ease their way into motorcycling without spending much.

    The new EL is Kawasaki's attempt to make them spend more. All the advantages of a mini-custom are there, but with fewer hassles and more quality. Like Suzuki's GN and Yamaha's SR, the EL gets a low seat for easy paddling, a low centre of gravity for easy balance and a relaxed riding position.

    But unlike the cheap and cheerfuls, it gets modern fixtures and fittings that make it easier to live with. Instead of a wheezy old single-cylinder engine that only just manages to pull four gear and struggles to go over 70mph, the EL gets an eight-valve parallel twin that used. In still air and on flat ground it can push the EL up to an indicated 80mph.

    This is performance beyond the wildest dreams of the GN and SR. A following wind will send the EL hurtling towards the 90mph mark and only steep hills beat it down to below The speedo takes the edge off the feeling of outrageous speed because the needle never gets past 11 o'clock — in one of motor-cycling's greatest feats of optimism it is calibrated to mph.

    The price of such neck-straining speed is the EL's inevitable buzzi-ness. A bore 20mm greater than the stroke means on its way to a redline of ll,rpm the EL sounds like a racing trill phone.

    It's as Harley-like as granny's Datsun Cherry, but the modern engine gives the EL a large dollop of practicality. The daily 30 mile trek into work was not a sluggish nightmare. Although there's little gumption in the bottom half of the rev range, car-beating performance can still be had thanks to the six-speed gear box.

    Scurrying up and down the gears doesn't fit in with the long low image, but it means the EL can pull from 60mph to 70 briskly enough to get past lorries without terrifying rider and lorry driver. Equipment is just as practical.

    The main beam emits enough light to see where you're going at night -novel on a mini-custom - and instead of dodgy switchgear that's been kicking around Japanese warehouses for 10 years, the EL has clean, efficient switches that have only just been phased out on ZXRs. Indicators are push to cancel, idiot lights are useful, and the choke is bar-mounted. Starting from cold, the choke operation itself is odd. The motor starts instantly and idles fast but after thirty seconds slows and soon sounds as if it's about to stall.

    Knock off a bit of choke and the idle holds, but is so fragile that a sniff of clutch is enough to stall it. The ride to work starts with 11, revs ai irritable neighbours. The low cent of gravity and adequately stiff frari mean the EL feels stable throuj smooth slow and medium bene Only when the straight is lor enough for you to get up to 80mf does the corner at the end becon worrying because of the EI increasing vagueness.
