Thought I'd better introduce myself here. Been biking since 1969 when I passed the test at the tender age of 16½! and only in the last 18 months have I been on the Kawasaki bandwagon.
I kicked off with a ZR7-S which is a bit like a small Rex and then upgraded to an 02 1200 "S" last September. Within 10 days I was giving it a good runout on the Mountain Circuit and couldn't stop grinning all the way home. My 18 year old son has a 1995 Suzy GS500 and he seems have 2 wheels in the blood as well.
Have just done the 15000 service and learned a lot about how these things are put together and I'm impressed.
Been biking since 1969 when I passed the test at the tender age of 16½!......
Sounds like most of us on here, Passed our tests when all you had to do was ride up n down the road , and not fall off. But after 30 odd years of riding, and were still at it. I think we have learned a lot.
Which part of the country you in.?
Sell my Kawasaki ? I'd rather shove wasps up my ass. I've tried reading books on motorbikes, but the books always slide off the tank !!!
I'm in the sunny New Forest, well its sunny at the moment! Thinking about a quick tour of the local roads. Only shame is there is a blanket 40mph on all the good roads, to give the loose animals a chance, but they never get u[p to those speeds!
Hey! I didn't say that I stay at 40. the twisty bits are far too good for that. We've developed quite a good little route round the back roads that are usually pretty quiet except when all the grockles are out, and this does give both the bike and me a good work out, even if its not often in top gear
New Forest, I think I have seen you and the majestic grey out not soo long ago. Im in Fareham, (but drive a tesco artic all round that area) do you go down to poole at all, if so be nice to meet up, convince michael to come and we will have three majestic greys together.
Now there is a thought
Could bring Floog, the sight would send him even more
Yeah, I'm always well up for that, as my kids say. You can often see me on the A36 to Ferndown, Poole and beyond. If your in Fareham, what about somewhere like Bishopstoke, Shawford, Bishop's waltham area?
Open to suggestion really . A pride of silver "S"s - now that sounds reeeeeaaaaaaaaalllllly cool
Looks pretty stock - but we'll all help you deal with that in short order
Pretty much. Braided hoses, powerbronze screen and Givi bits at the back on a Renntech carrier.
Renntech are only down the road a bit and I have bought several bits from them. Good people who know the power of CASH! . Always get a good deal that is lower than you see in the catalogues and their own site

drack1: Hi, Question, I am rebuilding my ZRX1100-C2 I have just installed new bearings to the swing arm. Looking at the diagram in the manual the diagram I believe is wrong.
Jan 29, 2017 2:48:12 GMT
drack1: the diagram shows The top hat spacer fitting to be on the left. But it will only fits on the right side running throught the seal and upto the large ball race bearing. Anyone else found this issue. ?
Jan 29, 2017 2:54:23 GMT
drack1: dodgydal: The C1,C2,C3,C4 Relates to the bikes model year. Eg; C1 = 1997 C2=1998 C3=1999 C4=2000
