Can a ZX14 be made into a scratcher like the ZX10?
OK, I want the comfort of the ZX14 but the scratchability of a ZX10. I have no interest in drag bikes, lengthend swingarms etc. So has anyone carried out a project to make the ZX14 lighter, flickable, harder braking without fade etc. Can the 14 be improved enough to give the 10 a run for its money (or even beat it)? If so, what worked and what didn't, any recommendations. I can imagine fitting an Akro Evo titanium system and carbon wheels would go a long way to improving the handling and weight but what else?
My 10 is in the shop for a service on Saturday and I've booked out the 14 out for a test ride!!
