    Maybe the ST13 will become the next Kaw Concours Gen I, which Kaw basically made for 25 years before finally walking it out to pasture for the mercy shooting.

    The Connie earned my respect when I once road 1,080 miles on it in 17.5 hrs.

    When we see that the BMW GT 1600 have some problems (transmission and electronic), we realise that the ST 1300 was made to last and give satisfaction after years.

    As best as I can measure on a bathroom scale a complete ST1300 rear wheel with drive spline and mounted tire weighs +/- 36 lbs. No brake disc or ABS ring.

    I am wondering if vfr1200f's single swingarm can be applied to st1300. I HATE flange and its bearings, all that spinning dead unsprung weight, rubber pieces, heavy rear rim, molly grease, all with passion....
    I think that this was covered earlier in this thread. One opinion is that there would be no weight savings, and possibly weight increase because the single swingarm has to have tortional strength.

    Or, has to be higher tech metals and fabrication techniques to handle the torsion without adding weight ... and that leads to higher price ... which it seems we're complaining about.
