Drifter 1500 only / Re: What have I got?!!
« Last post by chief on April 22, 2021, 12:39:36 PM »
After reading your previous post I tried to find the history section of the forum where the articles about the Cobra bike built by Berg but I can't find it. Have we lost that information or am I looking in the wrong places?

Seems to me there used to be the original Kawasaki write up about the new Drifter, the information about how many were sold each year and more. The original Kawasaki advertisements, a video or two...
From the Home page (not forum)...

Drifter 1500 only / Re: Will it fit?
« Last post by Troll on April 22, 2021, 03:47:13 AM »
One of the other guys just transplanted a 1600 of later vintage into his. I have 131,000 miles on mine. I had to go through the transmission at 125,000 because of a noisy/worn mainshaft bearing. The engine components, themselves are all original, pistons/crank/bearings, valves are untouched. The only issue was a bad bearing in the trans, so I'd say they are pretty bulletproof.

Drifter 1500 only / Will it fit?

I always like to get spares for bikes I own and I was going g to get a spare engine. If can't fi d a VN1500 engine, will a VN1600 fit with few if any mods? As I'm not familiar with the bike, I don't know what the reliability and the long term mileage will be. Cheers.
