Hi All,

Just a quick introduction. 29 years old. First big bike (tbh, first actual bike). From Lancashire.

And i've just purchased a really nice condition ZZR600 E3. At least I think its an E3, they're the 1995 ones right?

Ill no doubt be needing lots of help along the way as ive always been a car man, rather than bikes. However times are changing for me.  Cool

  1992 C wheel finish and VIN
Posted by: AndyMac - 13-06-2017, 04:46 PM - Forum: Tech Talk - Replies (1)

Hi

Newbie to the forum. 

Just got myself a 1992 reg Kawasaki ZZR1100c Black with silver frame and purple & silver decals (black frame painted silver...Frame number in low 600000s). 

Wheels are very dull and I wondered what the original finish would have been? These look polished but now very dull?

Any pics of 1992 wheel in original spec would be great thanks.

Also it has 12 digit VIN stamped on headstock starting ZXT10C with a six figure frame number after that instead of a 17 digit VIN...
...thought  UK imports were all made in Japan...

...Anyone?  Huh

Hi

Newbie to the forum. Just got myself a 1992 reg Kawasaki ZZR1100c Black with silver frame and purple & silver decals (might be a 1991 model?...VIN in low 600000s). 

Wheels are very dull and I wondered what the original finish would have been? These look polished but now very dull.

Any pics of 1992 wheel in original spec would be great thanks.

  ZZR1100 run for 15 miles then dies.
Posted by: Big Red Z - 31-05-2017, 01:02 PM - Forum: Tech Talk - Replies (2)

Hi All.

Just managed to get the bike back on the road but now have another issue, it started fine and ran very sweet. Got about 15 miles down the road and it died. Ignition is on and it turns over but will not fire. After about 10 minutes got it started, it ran very poorly for 2 minutes then stopped again. It did this a couple more times then will not start.
I have clean the carbs and everything looked fine under the tank. It is like the something electric got hot and decided to go on holiday.
The bike is a 94 M plate with stick coils, the valve clearance were done 1500 miles ago. 
Any thoughts as planning a trip this weekend.

Cheers

Craig.

I for one is guilty as sin for not posting..viewing..adding info to this forum.
It appears it's turned into a ghost town lol..
Weather is improving and I for one has been on my Black Beauty several times and enjoyed every minute minute. Maybe others are doing the same hence how quiet it is on here.
Shame to lose all the brilliant folk on here and if not used and as the  saying goes. You is or lose it doesn't become a reality.
I for one would like to see posts and the good crack it once had.
Sam.

Hi all.

Looking at doing the NC500 this coming weekend, just wondering if anybody has done it? if so are there anything to look out for (apart from camper vans). Are there plenty of petrol stations, eating and drinking places etc.

Thanks

Craig

I may be late with this tragic news..however Nicky Haden has died. 
On his push bike and knocked of his bike by a cage of all things.
Tragic. He was a decent fella.

  ZZR1100 Front brake problem
Posted by: Big Red Z - 12-05-2017, 09:39 PM - Forum: Tech Talk - Replies (2)

Hi all, been off the road for a while and am now wanting to get back in the saddle but have hit a problem. Had my 11 booked in for it's MOT Smile (I had given it a quick check over and all looked fine), jumped on it and went up the road, came to the first junction and applied the brakes and they ending up sticking on. Had to ride the bike back home (about 1 mile) with the brake sticking and cancel the MOT. Angry
I have since freed up the caliper but can not get it working correctly, the lever is firm but goes back to the bars, I recon only about 25% braking efficiency Sad . Over the last three weeks I had tried everything I can think of ( see below ). The calipers are off a GSXR600 K1 and I have braided hoses.

Cleaned, inspected and replaced the seals in the master cylinder.
Stripped and replaced the piston seals in the calipers.
Bled, bled,bled and bled the calipers, every method (open,pump, close / vacuum / reverse filling / leaving the leaver held in over night).

I just cannot seem to get them working right and I don't want to have to take it to the garage and it end up costing me a small fortune. If anybody has any thoughts please let me know.   Thumbsup

Cheers.
