exhaust — Kawasaki Z750 and Z800 Owners


I've got a 2008 z750 and i want to change my can, anyone got any advice on best price and performance? also on how easy it's going to be to do?


  • id go for a akrapovic race can (road legal version) they are VERY LOUD ! and have a removable baffle so it can go even louder on track days,

    it will add about 4BHP to your bike with just the can, or 11.5BHP if you get the whole exhaust system.

    you can get them from www.twinshack.co.uk

  • i have an akrapovic sp series can with removeable baffle....coupled with a k&n filter and tweeked with a power commander III....it sounds sweet as and cackles more than the wicked witch.

    you'll never know what suits you till you try it so i'd recommend to go for looks and let the rest come at an advantage as most cans have similar traits.

    installation is easy too....just release the jubilee clip at tthe bottom and undo the bolt into the rear footrest... and voi'la the can pops straight off

  • I have Sc-Projekt on my bike, really nice whit removeable dbkiller...

The 500R was a bike for mileage for me and not a racing bike. It has me on 2 wheels having fun and it will break every speed limit here in the states. I used to ride cruisers and this 500R is much quicker than my last bike which was a Yamaha Virago 700. If I get another bike I still want to keep the 500R for sport bike fun but I would either like the new Vulcan Voyager or Concours. I like them both and I would also like to have a KTM Dual Sport. I guess I will have to win the lottery.


what is your favorite trackday racing track — Kawasaki Ninja Riders

what is your favorite trackday/racing track

Hi all

tell me what is your favorite racing track and have you done any track days and what was it like.

  • I've been track riding for 3 years now. The tracks I've been on are:

    Pocono(East, North, & FUSA)

    Summit Point, WV(Shenandoah & Main)

    New Jersey Motorsports Park(Thunderbolt)

    A lot of people complain about Pocono because of piss poor track conditions(lots of ripples, runoff is treaherous, and transition patches are rough) and they don't usually like to cater to bike clubs. However, I can't complain much about it because it's my home track(only 30-40 minutes from where I live).

    I ran Shenandoah twice in '08. First time I did it I hated it in the morning but fell in love with it by the afternoon...so much that I made my way back there 2 weeks later...and crashed, but still loved it.

    Thunderbolt @ NJMP is really nice( very fast & technical) probably because it's a brand new facility. I unfortunately made a run there while I was sick and ended up puking after almost every session so I didn't really get to enjoy it to the fullest. This year I'm really looking forward to hitting it again, only under better health conditions.

    This year I'm hoping to add a couple more tracks to the list including BeaveRun, NJMP (Lightning course), Summit Point (Jefferson) and maybe even VIR.

    Sorry for carrying on but when I hear anyone mention trackdays or racing it gets my blood pumping again so I love to hear about other people's experience and share a few of my own.

    To sum it up I don't have a favorite track because I'd gladly take any one of them over a day at work anytime.

  • i've done california speedway, willow springs, buttonwillow, and las vegas motor speedway. I like willow springs the most because it has lots of elevation change and the whole track is high speed.

  • Buttonwillow! Streets! then the Big track at Willow. Love Mazda and Lost Hills at Buttonwillow. Can't wait to get out there again on April the 20th! Not quite ready for Laguna. Maybe next year.

  • Went to Cadwell Park for the weekend, trackdays on both days, it was wicked!

  • I've done Road America, Brainerd, Grattan,Autobahn Country Club, and Jennings GP. As far as track days go; I don't ride on the street anymore and don't miss it. If you do a track day I would recommend trying to find a 2 day event if you can afford it. Seems like 1 day gives you just enough time to learn the track and then, sadly, it's over.

ZX8R — Kawasaki Ninja Riders


I've heard there is a new XZ8R Kwak are working on, I'm just wondering is there a need for an 800cc machine? Apparently based on the moto GP bikes it will deliver the power of the ZX10's with the movement of the ZX6. Speculation or fact??? I ask you fellow Ninja riders...

  • I think they are planning on it but you have to consider what yoou are sacrificing. I highly dont beleive that it will have as much power as a zx-10, also it will be bigger so theres no way it will move like zx-6. If you are looking at something like that, i read an article in a mag a while back where they had a modified zx-6 (636 i believe) compared to a stock zx-10 and the zx-6 did a lot better. I cant see it being that long lasting either. theres really no category for it, like the 636, too big for the 600cc category, and would have to race with the 1000cc.

  • Ok, anyone know if a ZX10-R 04-06 rear swing arm will fit a 2000 ZX9-R. Would like to know before spring arrives. cheers

  • i've seen the zx8r ninja as a project . it's beautiful . i think it'll be the ideal choice between 636r and 10r ninja . i'll upload a pic

I have had an '07 SE since December 2007. It is a great bike & awesome for 2-up riding. I really enjoyed it in Arizona but all of the roads are straight!. I just moved to Italy 2 months ago & my bike will be delivered tomorrow! I can't wait. I have not done many mods as of yet, but my future ones include pulling the secondary flies, PCIII, either M4s or a full system, & replacing the the front stock fender w/ a ZX-10R fender. It looks sooo SICK! What I have done to it is removed all of the flame decals, blacked out the windscreen, & installed a Kawasaki yoke nut cover. It is good to see a group out here w/ this many members.


Southeast PA riders — Kawasaki Ninja Riders

Southeast PA riders?

Any SE PA riders here? I am in Warminster.

  • Do any trackdays with TPM?

    I'm up in the Scranton/W-B area.

  • I haven't done any track days at all. I would like to do one but I don't want to have to get track gear and change stuff on the bike. I would like to just get out on a track on my own to sharpen my riding skills.

  • You really wouldn't need to change anything on the bike. Just dial in your suspension and make sure have a good set of tires w/75% tread or better. As for gear you could rent a race suit.

  • I have about 4,200 miles on the bike now and I have to replace the rear tire already from one riding season. I had it inspected in October and they pointed out the flat tread in the middle of the tire. They siad it would need replaced soon.
