Please check out and add your name to the list of the ZX-12R Clutch petition.
www.petitiononline.com/mod_perl/signed.cgi?zx12r&1

Many people particularly with 00/01 ZX-12R's have had problems with their clutches. Mostly with lack of lubrication which can lead to a number of failures, burned/warped plates etc. In some cases when drag racing people have had their baskets explode.
Personally I do not feel that Kawasaki should be responsible for making their clutches drag racing proof, but certainly with the power that was intended for the bike it should be able to handle a few large launches.
My clutch is fine at this point after almost 3 seasons of riding, but I don't drag often.

We may have enough people to make a difference. Bikeland and other sites are pointing to this Petition as well.

Mine had clutch chatter before I ever had the first service... I complained to mechanic about it then.... I broke it in properly also....

If her eyes aren't crossed and one eye lid flapping like a hummingbird wing your not quite there yet...</p>

on me...

i just added my signature and it was number 63. we'll need quite a few more before Kawi feels its a problem serious enough to address. BTW, why arent the VIN numbers included for verification purposes?

Liquor, then Pounder</p>
