Import

sorry if this has been asked before but, there are a few Import ZX-10's coming up for sale in the UK at the moment and I need to know if there is any difference in them depending on which state they come from. In the old days it was best to stay clear of california bikes as they were a little astmatic and laiden with omissions pipework. Is it the same since everthing has gone to fuel Injection.
cheers.

The question must be too hard. None of the tech people know the answer to this?

Anything made for the California market has been bastardized in some way or another...
best to avoid them....seems the demon motorcycle is more lethal than their black cloud spewing city buses (that are exempt from smog control...)
Waiting for the cat converters to be required on lawnmowers and weedwackers.....
Sorry, rant over....

Ahhhh. I assumed you were speaking of the 08 for some reason. As I understand it...the tank on the California model has a petrol breather pipe that is visable when you open the petrol cap, on the left. I do not beleive this is on the "49 State" models.

cali version probably has a charcoal canister to absorb evaporating gas from tank.

not quite as bad as the old days with different carbs and cams.

I know the 05 calis had carbon cans and a gas tank with different venting for the can.
