So I spent this past weekend with my daughter out at Ocotillo Wells riding with friends. My daughter wanted to go for a night ride. We have never done this because her bike has no light. Anyway, I borrowed my buddies KXL450 and let my daughter ride the WR. In short, I can't believe Kawasaki can sell a bike like that. The headlight was HORRIBLE. There is no way the engineers and test riders took that bike out at night and said, "Oh yeah, this headlight works great. Our job here is finished. Now on to the kickstand." It just blows me away that there wasn't a single person there on the test ride with a tiny bit of clout and a tiny bit of courage to say, "Wait, this light sucks, we can do better on a $7000 brand leading off-road flag ship." My daughter had to ride next to me so that we could both use the headlight on my WR. When she rode directly behind me, the light on my WR was so bright that it cast my shadow directly in front of me and I could not see. Yep, the KLX literally did not have enough light to illuminate it's own shadow. Also, the instrument cluster did not light up so if you needed it, you would have no idea how fast you were going or how far you had traveled or how long you had been gone. I actually liked the other aspects of the KLX although this one was modified with a pipe, spot on jetting and suspension work.
