You're dead right Pecks' I know there's less traffic up here, but today it was empty out there, would have been a far different story if the sun was out, as Kielder Forest area is a big draw for tourists and activities due the water expanse. Plus it has the darkest spot in the UK, so lots of overnight start-gazers floating about.


The bike goes very well, the ride was a bit firm today, so I'm still adjusting the new shock to my liking, plus the rear tyre is a little squared off now, so not the best feeling from the rear.
It pulls your arms off in the right gear with a quick wind on the throttle, the brakes are very good now, quite a pussy cat at slow speeds too, but you can feel it's being held back low down, like a coiled spring waiting to go off! Laugh

Just thought I'd update things (for what it's worth)

Been out and about on the old thing a fair bit since sorting it, been in some torrential rain on it as well as some cracking weather. The new rear shock has now been adjusted to perfection Wink and performs very well.

But as is me, I've been tinkering again lately in an attempt to improve the feel of the brakes. Nothing too wrong with them to be honest, but I'm trying to get a little more solid feel to the lever after a bit of hard use, so just preferential to me.

Anyway, I have been doing some looking about and decided on a conversion to radial m/c which means I have to change the throttle housing and switch unit to separate items rather than a combined unit.

I have acquired ZX10R Throttle assembly, ZX10R radial m/c and a ZX9R switch unit, all of it requires some fitting, the wiring needs adapting, the cables need changing, but it should all be do-able without spending a fortune, and a worthy conversion.

But not a popular one. Grin

Quaz,i need a bit of educating...i thought the word radial referred to the mounting of the slave cyliders,not the master. Obviously I'm missing part of the story. So whats the advatage of getting a .'radial mc?

Both as it happens OB, you're right that the popular/modern caliper mounting is now radial, but the change in m/c is also considered to be this design, as you are now pulling the fluid towards you at right angles to the lever/applied force. All the earlier m/c have been kind of pivotal in line with the lever/applied force, now obviously bore sizes and ratio play a large part, but by design they are more effective.


Advantages well, believed to be more efficient at transferring applied force, creating a better feel, more effective braking power. I'm no expert, but as things have moved on the radial option seems to be the standard fitment today, and the Holy Grail of motorcycle braking.



Yorkie, you're dead right. Grin

ZZR no2

Aquired it off a mate for 200 quid, had a running issues on 3 cylinders, he wanted shot of it.

An old M reg with 22k on the engine, wasn't bothered about fixing it or not, wanted it for the spares alone.
Engine turned out to be "Idiot error" dropping a carb cap screw down the inlet cusing the issue.

Which set loose the shimm from under three valves making it all worse.
The balance shaft tensioners on the earlier engines were prone to oming loose and causing this issue..

I powder coated both sets of wheels, chnges the appearance of the bike, tones down the purple gayness. Gay

Good pics of the damage to the zzr engine, looks nasty but as you say for £200 a steal and if you needed to you could break it to sell some of the bits your not interested in keeping as spares on ebay and quite easily get £200 back after costs Thumbs Up

Gixxer looks good, can't tell but is that the 750 or 1000? (hope its the 750)
