I picked up a Green A1 ZX12, with 25,000 miles on the clock, last week, for a good price.
17 tooth front sprocket,
static ignition advance,
quick action throttle insert,
front caliper strip and rebuild,
fit the alarm properly,
remove Oxford Hot Grips, replace with standard,
repair wobbly left mirror lens (will be on website soon),
'cat' already removed,
took Quill exhaust can apart, made it into a straight through, not optimum, but better,
air filters, k&n or bmc, choices, :headscratch::lol:
kleen air removal and vacuum procedure,
oil and filter.
re-make exhaust hanger,
replace right, rear indicator lens, melted for some reason, luggage I think.
and a bloody good clean:rant:
It had plugs when I serviced it last year, but will check them, NGK CR9EIX
And I'll have to have a look into a throttle body sync, not done that on a 12 before.
edit: its got a 'B' model front mudguard :thumbdown:
I sat on it then took my zx14r for a quick ride cause it has been on stands for over 3 weeks doing all kinds of work............Well i did`nt mean for it to happen but somebody coming down the highway got a 100 plus ticket cause my k-40 saved me again and the cop went after the wrong person....

Awaiting for return of '04 radial mount front forks with new RaceTech internals and will mount the zx14 MC and Nissin radial calipers I purchased...Then do my first throttle body balance with MotionPro set I just bought!
Sometimes I get just as much pleasure tinkering and fixing things on this bike as I do riding it!
2000 ZX12...purchased it non-running about 3 years ago. Finally tore into engine and found piston rings were melted to the pistons. Purchased new cylinder, rings, and put engine back together. The starter seems to make a bit of a screeching sound when turning the engine over. The bike will...

Hoping someone can help. I know zx12s run hot and have issues with heating up but what mine is doing can’t be normal.
on a run at any speed the temp is fine, either half way or just below it, if I’m stopped in traffic for 30 seconds, it’s up into the red and boiling the coolant out the over...
A while back I was on this forum and got some info about the oil pipes in the engine block with a photo showing the difference, the A model pipes were almost twice as narrow as the B model.
Does anyone know from which model year the wider pipes started and if they are a straight swap with the...
