Yamazuki Nissin 4-pots added and built a new tail this winter. Finally got that annoying 2-2,5k rpm bogging mapped.

71Rcode Thanks for your kind words, gents. And Don, that silver is a fantastic color. The 17t may go back on eventually, but I want to ride it with the original gearing for a bit first. I've got no true baseline with this bike as yet to truly ride/enjoy. Final challenge is a nagging brake issue I must first solve. I'll post the question below to see what the experts say.

BTW, I fixed the brake issue. The rear master cylinder return port was gunked up. Disassembly, thorough cleaning with brake cleaner, a .010" high-E guitar string and compressed air did the trick.

Duck00 Two points of issue...

1. The 17t sprocket does make a good change to how the bike responds from down low, especially from slow corners (on a track it really helps).

2. Red...Really?? Now a good Silver will improve overall performance!

Jokes aside, nice bike you have 71Rcode.

Don.

Mods are a full titanium Muzzy and a Power Commander (and with me undoing a prior mod of removing the 17t front sprocket in place of the stock 18t). Looking forward to getting her out and seeing how she really runs soon.
Tremendous
Very clean. Red is a very fast color. You will want that 17 counter. Get a speedo healer if you want the meter accurate. That little sprocket is a better mod than the muzzys and power commander.

Purchased Friday last week

A few issues but I'll sort them. Quick bike, but had a clutch issue that was nothing to do with the clutch!!! After fitting new clutch friction plates and it makes no difference. I think the adjustment issue is down to the aftermarket levers that touch the handlebars before disengaging the clutch fully. The lever is set with 2mm free play and this leaves a pull arc movement of about 12mm before hitting the grip of the bar! Lots of these aftermarket levers look lovely but are not well engineered, gripe over, wasted £55 and an hour swapping the friction plates to come to this conclusion. Hey Ho, that's life.

Thanks...
I figured joining here may well get me sorting the bike out precisely how I want it a tad quicker than I would if I just carried on being the lazy git that I am
It sure as hell won't look the same once I have completed all the work I want to do.
Frankly there are too many changes to list, I might just get up some kind of build thread (or rebuild) to spur me on.
However a few new bits include stainless braided cables, titanium & anodized aluminium fasteners, Ohlins rear shock, K&N air filters, mirrors removed & rear view camera fitted, new dash with gear position indicator etc, new gloss black bodywork, billet alloy rearsets, quickshifter that automatically changes up gear at 11,000RPM (or where I see fit).

Too much to list but it's going on a strict diet too.... There's so much weight to throw away, honestly! I nearly died when I popped the rear seat off, it weighs a ton!

2002 A2 ZX-12R..... I watched it going round & round on eBay for months after I asked the seller about delivery charges (£100), so I offered the bloke £2199 delivered.
I guess that was £300 off...
He took it & I have been gathering bits & knowledge ever since... Only mod seems to be the titanium Akrapovic exhaust [IMG class=inlineimg]/images/KawasakiWorld_2016/smilies/tango_face_smile.png[/IMG]
It's about to be very modified over winter... Solid bike, just some electrical connections were a bag of shite, now sorted, obviously.

A few bodywork cracks but entirely new bodywork purchased & now for the fun part, the electronics [IMG class=inlineimg]/images/KawasakiWorld_2016/smilies/tango_face_grin.png[/IMG]
