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!
HI : Any one can help me my 2001 zx12r runs faster than ever before when full throttle and increasing speed, just when trying to go same steady speed
start bouncing like if we're
going not gas and gas again this happens at any speed and at any shift even in 6th shift even when going downshift...
Seeing that i am completely rewiring my 12, and thinking about the charging system issues that plague these poor bikes, i searched on here and around the net and found that people have successfully used FH mosfet regulators.
I am familiar with these because i systematically upgraded all my...
Hibs decided to have a huge family, so look what I have. Another project!!! Found on eBay for a song. 2004 roller with 5000 miles. The 12 is in great shape. I’m thinking this will make a real nice street bike with some basic bolt ons.
Hi guys, didn't like to go without saying goodbye. I sold my 12 last night £5000 and she's being picked up next week.
Not used her for a few years and to be honest cannot see me doing so in the future, I had a bad accident in 2017 on my XJR1300 with my daughter on the back which has made riding...
