  • When you get old like me , you get home from a ride and you're bursting for a wee,the cat's giving you a bollocking cos it's way past tea time and you're wondering what WTF you did with your wallet, the last thing on your mind is turning off the fuel tap. Even if i did remember to switch it off i'd forget to switch it on again as i spluttered down the road!

  • Leave on, simple.

  • Nice simple answer there Colin .. And there generally the best answers!

Can anyone post a close up pic of the wingrack fitting arms in situ as I have a wingrack and no fitting kit - could buy one for £70 but can make them much cheaper just need the pics to see how it goes. Thanks

  • Thanks Phil. I assumed you were referring to the D series and if so yes please. I've even contacted Givi in Italy and they confirmed nil stocks anywhere in the distribution network and they won't be going back into production (suprising given the popularity of the ZZR1100/Givi combination).

  • Ah this may be a problem then. I will check with the dealer

  • I found a NOS item in a Prague bike shop going very cheap (P&H incl.) and they confirmed it was still available (Google's my friend). Problem was they wouldn't accept PayPal, couldn't speak/write a word of English nor I Czech. It's probably still sitting on the shelf today.

whats the solution for losing the ram air intake without losing power — The Kawasaki ZZR1100 Appreciation Society

whats the solution for losing the ram air intake without losing power?

dropped my zzr, while waiting for a new fairing it's been Rat fightered,

I've got the complete airbox but not the "lung" going to the nose. Goes like stink when you hold your hand a cm in front of the intake!

%d comments
  • Don't ride fast enough to notice? Ram air only makes an impact at speeds high enough to be ramming the air through the vents.

  • it makes the zed run awful above 6k revs and lack anything past 60

  • and I understand ram air normally kicks in around 120-130

The flatsides are fitted !! They sound pretty cool! The downside is ive junked the coolant routing around the crabs to prevent carb icing and the airbox now wont be a totally sealed one! Ive got more setting up to do next weekend or so, with Mike's colourtune . :)

%d comments
  • £54.11 each plus postage about £226 :O :O :O

  • A little update ! The bike goes like stink, with a grumbly burble from the carbs,its very very silky smooth on the throttle :) :) :) The only slight downside is its tendency to idle quite high it was 3k at one point . Ive got it down to 2k as at 1500 revs it wants to stall. But very very happy with it (Y)

  • Cant wait to see THE beast

I take it that this is a common problem with ZXR forks. Looked on Ebay & they all seem to be the same. Do any other forks fit a J?

%d comments
  • Spot on. Just won a pair of forks on Ebay for £52. Cheaper than rechroming :)

  • ZXR750 J model stanchions are 43mm and L model stanchions are 41mm. Both upper legs are the same 52mm.

  • Oh....oh.... that's why my mechanic said is been swapped.... :(

    thanks Barry.

  • My mate stripped an old Honda 250 elsinore in his lounge, made a mess, wife was a bit peeved but not as much as when the 34 ford coupe v8 emptied its sump on the lounge carpet.

  • Nice local tyre place took it off for free this morning :)

Thank you to the other V riders that recommended the Seat Concepts seat kit upgrade. I just installed it and it is fantastic!! No more sliding forward and a much more comfortable seat. For $169 it cant be beat. I bought a $35 air stapler from Home Depot that came with 5000 staples and it worked fine. I totally recommend this seat kit to all riders. If you have a bigger butt, then you will like this seat even more as the saddle is slightly wider.

  • Yep. Got the same seat. Love it.

  • @Andy: ups sorry ..i didn't know that ..at the first time , i thought this is an indonesian group, until @purepower asking me to write it down in english. then i realized that this is an international group ..fiuhhh...sorry for that . ohya how to register yah ? thx. My name is Farianto Kurniawan . Product: tee-shirt. Location: Jakarta, Indonesia. What's data else were needed ?

  • No Mike but now we got that cleared up I will get him on the books, the way registration works Farianto Kurniawan 吴华富 is that now you are registered, if another seller joins the group also selling tee-shirts then they will not be allowed to, it basically keeps the business sellers to a minimum.

  • @Andy: ahh thank you so much bro Andy .. #hugsFromJakartaIndonesia

An Event Hosted and Organised by Stephen Parr (Steve). Here is his message:

Hello gents

I've been doing some organising regarding the up coming event at Rockingham for another meet up. I have just received an email from Kawasaki UK saying that they will provide an area near the entrance for any one from The ZZR1100 Appreciation Society to park as a gesture I said that we would display our bikes for people to view on the way in?

All I ask is can anyone who fancies going please let me know as I have to inform Kawasaki of numbers of attendances.

Thanks everyone I will keep you informed and hope to see you there.

    Hello everyone I informed Kawasaki of a rough number, I told them upto 12 people we have 8 definitely and a few maybe's.

    They have said the will mark the area reserved for The ZZR1100 Appreciation Society

  • Ok update for me , I might be able to get cover at work my apprentice has got to talk to his boss indoors so fingers crossed
