Z1000

Any other Z1000 riders out there?
I just bought this bike (2700 miles on it)


There must be a Z1000 forum out there on the interweb somewhere.
Perhaps someone could point me in the right direction.
Cheers.

Greg

kawiforums.com might have a z1000 section

put a zx636r front end on it(near bolt-on), top clam kit with some 1 1/8" bars and a better shock on the rear

congrats on getting a fun hooligan bike.....nice to know some people on here still get fun bikes as it seems like many are buying the most economical/sensible bikes that are the equivalent of driving a toyota corolla or minivan .


I'm thinking about getting one in the future....one of the best bang for the buck used bikes there is. Also looking at the sv1000's because I'm over the 600SS and not ready for an old man bike Hopefully when I get one it will be in as great shape and as nicely farkled as your bike

Greetings,

My wife picked up a used 2003 a couple of years ago after having a cruiser. She loves it....calls it dragonfly. It's the black one w/ red wheels and seat. She is slowly learning to have fun with the power of the bike. She's toured on it using a Puig windscreen and Cortech sport tail/saddle bags as well. I've ridden it a couple of times and like it.... a lot. I do really stupid things on that bike....

Nice bike - seen a bunch of goodies for them as well. Carbonfiber bits is the direction I would go. What ya plans for it??????? Do tell!

How hard is it to keep the front end down when launching?

Shane - should make you feel good to know I have 2 retard bikes! Too many gutless v-twins around my hood.

http://www.Riderforums.com has a Z1000 specific section where I got a lot of good info after I bought mine.

It's a great bike stock, and when modified really rips. Feels like a 4 cylinder heavy supermoto.
I have one, but have been bitten by the Adventure bug and don't ride it anymore.

Need a spare?
