Oh god, not the stock Zrx seat. I can do maybe 15 minutes on one. By that point, my ass has lost all feeling. By 1 hour, it's all numb and sore, and I kinda limp to my destination.

I'm also running a ZX11 ignitor box, ignition rotor and cams. JE pistons & lightened crank from APE. 1109cc - makes about 150whp.
That's a huge jump..
But I was wondering.. what about the fuel consumption?
Lemme guess. Twice as much as a stock ZZR1400?

The motor is built already - the carbs are the only new addition. Guy who made the prototype setup for the ZX11 carbs (KWICK over on the ZRXOA) is running almost the identical build and reports 40+ mpg. Of course it's all in relation to what you do with your right hand. Around town riding I'm getting around 40 mpg on the built motor with stock carbs, stock gearing.

I get 42-46mpg on mine with ZX-11 cams, K&N pods, Muzzy CF system, Stage 3 jetting, and Stock gearing.
This is doing 80+ on the highway.

MCN (UK) says that the ZX isn't heading our way. Seems strange as it was a fairly popular machine.

They'd be stupid not to, considering their popularity here in the states.
Beautiful machines for sure.
I get plenty of compliments on mine.
Oh, and it seems like I get better gas mileage on my ZRX with mods than my dad does with his stock one. He gets a constant 38mpg, versus my 42+ mpg. Kinda weird.

That bike, in those colors, is one of my all-time favorites. If one appears for sale near me, not sure I'll be able to resist. Love it.

The color I got on my bike is def. my favorite, followed by red.
That's a pretty bike though.
How's it do with that slip-on?
