    You've asked about bikes on here before, so were you actually expecting anyone to say that it is decent? It's been said many times on here before, don't even look at a full suspension bike under $1000 and since you're new to mountain biking, don't look at a FS bike...find yourself an entry level, $500 hardtail.

    I don't know why you're even asking this question. Yes, it is garbage. Save your money.

    Funny you should ask, I had two friends that bought that exact bike. Yes, they are fugly. Out of the two bikes, we went riding this past Sunday, one of the bikes basically fell apart. One was riding along and his left side crank fell off the nut came loose. We tightened it up and a couple minutes later it fell off again. It happend about 4 or 5 times. And then nearly at the end of the ride, his rear derailluer got caught between the spokes and that was it. I'm sure the other bike will fall apart soon enough. I was actually kinda embarrassed to ride with them...but they are noobs, they were just testing the waters to see if they would like the sport or not. But anyways, listen to everyone, do not buy that junk cause that's what it is...

    Oh yeah, before we hit the trail, I made them take their reflectors and kickstands off...or else I wouldn't right with them...lol

    Kawasaki? More like Kawasucky Did you even read the FAQ?
    Rules:
    1. Read the damn FAQ's
    2. See Rule #1
    3. Car and Motorcycle branded bikes are to be avoided like the Plague (The Honda DH bike that nobody can buy is the ONLY exception to this rule)
    4. Full suspension bikes under $1000 SUCK (The Suck factor increases the cheaper you go)
    5. NEW Full Suspension bikes priced at or about $200 aren't worth the powder to blow them to Hell (There can be notable exceptions on the used market but the good and cheap ones are either stolen or broken)
    6. If it can be bought at X-mart it's not good for anyone not even a newbie
    7. If you don't know **** about decent MTB's DON'T TRY TO BUY A MTB ONLINE

    There were a bunch more but the server dropped the first incarnation of this post

    Come on guys. It has "genuine" suspension.
    You could get that, or you could go find one of those old 70 lb motocross bicycles from the 80's. Has full suspension, gas tank and all the goodies.

    ok, chill out guys.

    while that kawasaki looks like total crap,
    i happen to be a co-owner of a cheapo kawasaki fs bike,
    complete with 20" wheels and garbage components,
    and in signature green and white paint.
    and i will be the first to say that it's a fine TOY bike.
    don't get me wrong for a minute,
    it's not a rig you trust or ride on any serious terrain,
    but it's a great TOY bike to kick the **** out of and play on.

    for what it's worth (which isn't much) it IS a good TOY bike.

    This isn't the TOY bike forum.

    My suggestion, ghost ride it into to east river.

    Not like those nasty ones with the bolts that come loose.

    Hi,
    I want to say hi first; I'm a newbie.

    Anyway, I have a kawasaky(toy) bike(I wish I knew this site first), and I bought some parts such as Manitou fork, Shimato stuffs, bar, headset,.....And fox shock( I thought the one comes with was bad), ETC.

    I'm upgrading those stuffs, but after I read this post I'm afread that I should go with different frame.

    Do you guy think this Y frame is that bad? evennthough I upgrade those parts?

    man, I already spent too much for now.
