I have read through a lot of the above, however which is the way to go, simple stand offs that fit under the xisting or the ones that allow fitting renthal type bars, what about wiring and control cables with the later, any help would be great,
thanks Devlin

Since I've posted on here and it's got an all new format!

Anyway though I'd say hi and give a bit of an update on my zed12.

So back in early October I was involved in a serious collision with a London Taxi that pulled across me on The Highway in London rather effectively writing off the bike and very nearly me too, I've been recovering since then but have been mulling over whether I get back on a bike again, the crashed bike languishing in the garage with my other retired zed12 with the possibility of making a good bike out of the two.

But I don't intend on returning to commuting so any riding will be social and holidays only, I don't have time to build a bike to the standard I would want, as I also have classic cars that need attention, so am thinking of parting out everything from both bikes and will buy a new bike later if and when I return to two wheels.

The bike took a full frontal impact shattering the front wheel, bending the frame and forks, breaking the top fork clamps and flattening the bike up to the exhaust manifold, All this at only 30mph too.

So you may see a for sale from me soon with lots of parts and accessories available.

The end of another Zed!

  Hello From A New ZZR 1400 Performance Sport Owner
Posted by: theoriginalmrp - 01-02-2017, 02:11 PM - Forum: Welcome to ZZR-RG - No Replies

Hi Folks. 

How are you all doing?

My name is Ben, and i'm new to this forum. 

I'd just thought i'd let you know that come March 1st, I'm taking delivery of a new Kawasaki ZZR 1400 Performance Sport. 

As most of you are already aware, this is the regular ZZR 1400, only with a specialised paint job, Akrapovic Exhausts, Double Bubble Screen, Ohlins Adjustable Rear Shock, and Brembo Brakes on the front. 

I've never owned a Kawasaki before, in fact my bike knowledge isn't as wealthy as that of cars. 

My current bike is a Suzuki GSXR 600 K2, which I've had for nearly 4 years. I only got my full bike licence in 2013, I was riding a new Honda CBF 125 before that on a CBT certificate. 

I'm keeping my Suzuki, because for what i'd get in part exchange, it just wasn't worth letting it go. 

So any advice on the ZZR Performance Sport, would be greatly appreciated. Its been my dream bike for some years, but only now have I decided to take the plunge. 

My extras are to include R&G Crash Bungs, Rear Hugger (Crucial on a bike if you dont want that Ohlins shock covered in muck), A Black Radiator Guard, and Oxford Heated Grips. 

It will have a ZZR related plate too. 

The bike is quite salty money on insurance, i've managed to get both bikes  covered fully comprehensive for £406, with 4 years NCB. I was disappointed my current insurer couldn't cover me, so as I am mid term through a policy, I have to lose 6 months NCB and start over. 

I think experience is key, because i have 17+ years NCD on my car, and most of my other car policies mirror the NCB... 

For those of you into cars too, I have a signature image underneath which will give you an idea of my other pleasures in life, which include....

A DeLorean DMC 12
Ford Focus RS
Classic Mark 2 Fiesta XR2

So I look forward to some advice on ZZR ownership, and I will report back when i'm closer to collecting it!

Cheers folks...

Hi guys

Just joined the group but sadly won't be here for years on end... recently acquired a 2001 zzr600 which was a bit of hound so will end it's misery there. All parts will be on sale, some parts are quite tatty but there's also a brand new Hagon shock, zx6 discs, Nissin gold caliper upgrade etc.. I'll post that in the For Sale section.

Other than that, I work in London's city as an project manager, had a ped as teen and naturally fell into bigger cc bikes. Been riding for the last 10years, I own & ride two (not both at the same time) Yamaha TRX 850's.. both quite modified... my black one has USD front end, wider rear wheel/swingarm, different fairing, FCR 41s, 2-1 exhaust etc. etc. and the white has had a cafe racer conversion! Other bikes comes and go, mainly fix up & sell or break for parts projects. Smile

Chat soon

I have had enough of phpbb3 and their crap update procedures.
I've installed and migrated a new forum software today.

If you have any problems let me know and I will try to sort it.

  ZZR1100 D Rear Suspension Common Parts?
Posted by: oldninjaronzzr - 17-01-2017, 07:44 PM - Forum: Tech Talk - No Replies

Hi, new to the site and to later model ZZR1100s. Just wondering if shock absorbers same or fit all models?
I bought a second hand shock advertised as fitting all D models - it matched that fitted to my D1 and is in cracking condition and I have a full Hyperpro kit, fork springs/shock spring /oil etc which might get fitted depending?

  Big Hi to All on here
Posted by: oldninjaronzzr - 17-01-2017, 07:33 PM - Forum: Welcome to ZZR-RG - Replies (4)

Been a biker since approx 1977 mostly on Kawasaki's: Z1000ST, GPZ750R, GPZ900R X3, ZX10B X2, GTR1000 X2, ZZR1100C Streetfighter, ZZR1100D1, ZRX1100 C3, ZRX1200R, ZZR1100D1, now any minute ZZR11OO D7.

It has been a long while since I have visited this site and I am not sure I registered last time. I had a couple of ZZR1100's but not for very long as I found a ZRX1100 then a cracking modded ZRX1200R which was closer to a ZZR1200 coming in at 150 RWHP with ZZR1200 barrels, pistons, cams, skimmed head etcZZR1100 carbs and gearbox. That bike is now sold. The only way to keep me going was to find a bike with enough poke e.g. ZZR1100 or Blackbird for the right price - no question it had to a Kwack so bike, ZZR1100 D7, will be arriving soon.

I suspect I need to catch up on specs across the ZZR1100 range and how they compare especially common parts etc.

Keep shiney side up.
