1st gear is useless on the h2 with traction control turnerd off at wot
It will flip you on your back faster than you can react. Cruising at 6000 rpm`s in 2nd gear with a wot wack will put you on your back too.There is a reason that Kawasaki did`nt try to make the H2 as light as possible. Every gear trust foreword as hard as 1st gear.It already pulls as hard as my Brocked out 14r. The supercharger is worth it`s weight in gold.
2000 zx12r 60,500 mile( Now 0 mile 2003 brand new engine} street bike 9.6`s in the 1/4 a few times.My 2012 14r stole me away.9.1 so far..Now my H2 piss`s on everything.It tried to flip me shifting into 3rd gear.
