The 9 was damn clean for 24k on it.


yeah,had the wheels,swingarm,fairing bracket and sidestand powdercoated, new brakelines,seatcowl and matching hugger and undertray and a new (ebay) exhaust on for the start of last summer....no expense spared.....and then i blew the cylinder head gasket (just before i traded her in :lol:)

she was beautiful and i miss her so........:mrgreen:

i got one bro! i still would like to have my 9 back. but by no means whatsoever to replace my 10! i just want it to have a friend!
:eek:ccasion1haha thats a funny way to put it. i remember when i first saw the '01 zx-9r back when i was a senior in highschool. every friday night on erie blvd in syracuse cars and bikes would line up, show off and race for a lil bit. i must have spent 20 min walking around that bike looking at it.

I had a 99 for 7 years, I miss it, but I got the 04 to replace it, but I had alot of good times on the 9r, very underrated bikes, mine put down 144hp with full Akra, and Timing advancer, BMC, and Ivans Jet kit.

Wow this is like secret confession in this thread. Ok I admit it, I miss my blue '99 ZX9. Traded it for my '04 10 almost four years ago now. I wouldn't give up my 10 for anything (even an '08 rode it, dont much care for it), but I miss that big ol comfy girl.
Of course the 10 is quicker and scarier, thats what appealed to me when I tested it all those years ago, but the confidence I had on that 9, I'm sure on some days on some roads I was quicker on that tubby blue thing.
Damn, I promised myself I wouldn't cry :crybaby2:

This one isn't mine, but I put almost 70k and 2 topends on one just like it.


I miss it a lot!!!
Had to buy a zx14 and a zx10r to help me get over it!!!

My bro-inlaw has a 2000 zx9r with like 6 or 7k on the odo and the 2" chicken strips. I keep buggin' him to just give it to me! ;)
