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....
From yesterday and today removed front brakes and MC, wheel, forks, took apart head stem (after finding slight 'notching' when checking bar to bar movement - thought now was a good time to replace headstem bearings). Later today will put in new headstem bearings (including seals and races).
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!
I'm currently assembling the ZX-12R in Japan. (I've taken three A1s in the past.)
Quickly, I made a rear seat up hinge! (Photo shows the prototype)
There are three things that make it different from what has been sold in the past
Torque hinge can be used to hold any angle.
Parts other than...
Question about autotune, I've installed it and calibrated the gears and done a couple runs to get the initial trims sent them to the fuel map and everything is working well really happy with it.
My question is how lean and how rich can you go. There seems to be 2 schools of thought...
2003 Ace Performance cyl head
A1 cams at 105/108 CL
2000 short block.
Cooper back cut trans
Stock crank and rods
KZScott preped Wossner 1199 turbo pistons.
Didn't want to let perfectly good parts sit on the shelf.... :)
