  1. Tonight on my way home while driving down the interstate at about 75mph the car all of a sudden started to slow. Pushing in the throttle did nothing. No check engine light. I got over to the shoulder and the engine was still running but no response from the throttle. 

    Set the parking brake. Turned the car off. Restarted it. Engine fires up but still no response. No CEL. So I turned it back off. 
    Reset the parking brake. Restarted the car. Engine fires up. No throttle response again. No CEL still.
    Let it sit for about three minutes and then tried the gas pedal and it was working again.
    What happened?? 
    Made it the rest of the way home with no problems.

    Oh. And might just be a weird coincidence but when I started the car each time the speakers all popped even though I didn’t have the radio on. Never noticed that before on startup.

  2. I had to find a solution because having my wife follow me everywhere in her Chevy Tahoe to quench my thirst whenever I felt the need arise wasn't cutting it anymore :)

    These are large/deep cupholders. I've had a bottle of Snapple and a medium drink in a regular soda cup fit with no problems or worry about tipping and I'm still pretty crappy at shifting gearsl so it's pretty rough here and there.


  3. I saw on some older posts about people using a whole slew of different ideas for cupholders. One of the most popular being one from the Miata store that slides under the floor mat.
    I really liked that but didn't want to spend $40 per cupholder.

    So, my solution was to get two of these for $7 each:

    Then I took a blow torch and heated up the tab and bent it around a piece of 1x4 scrap wood.
    Added a strip of hook fastener on the bottom of each cup and slid them under the floor mats. Passenger one is on the left side next to the center console and the drivers side is on the left side next to the door sill.

    Here's some pictures:





  4. Hahaha. You guys are awesome!  

    I don’t have that cool Provenance paperwork but I have the window tag. 

    I was reading about the Verdi Mantis and it seems to be a pearl paint. Mine definitely does NOT have pearl. It’s just green. Bright Green  😃


  5. XXAARRAA- It’s gorgeous!! The dealer said mine was the only 2018 in Kawi Green. It was shipped to the states in December  

    Simon- I would love to know if it really is Verdi Mantis. It said Kawasaki Green On the window sticker, the invoice and in the maintenance log book but I can’t find a code anywhere??

    i saw some sort of code on the door sill plate that said B132U0504 . A bit long to be a paint code though. 


    Thanks everyone for the great comments! I’m having a blast taking this beautiful beast out and about.
