The 11 is a great bike and I have ridden one many times. The only suggestion I would have is stiffer springs in the front if you get it. Waaaay undersprung stock. Other than that do it up.

For all your ZX-11 info needs check out http://www.bigbikeworld.com those guys will answer any and all questions you might have, great bunch on that site with a wealth of knowledge. Despite it's age and heft the 11 is a great bike and will surprise you. Big ZXs are fun to ride......I know first hand have an 89 ZX-10 (slightly modded) along with my 04 10R both in the faster black of course.:mrgreen:

Did you get it?
Yup- just rode it back 85 miles or so, little rain and wind, felt good.

Muzzy (not carbon:sad: but still nice), K&N, jet kit and YES the springs are a bit soft up front, noticed that already.
New pirelli diablos, clear and smoke screen, jacket, 2 oil filters, owners manual and bunch of papers, both original keys, 1 unused....

Thanks for the advice and comments. Will post some pics later.

Very clean but has scratches on each side from falling while still.

I transfered the tag today AND got the title in hand, in my name, for $7.00 extra no waiting.
New option so I had to do it- instant title.:eyecrazy:


Bradshow- will let you know if CBR is availiable before listing anywhere other than the two friends.
Hoping the guy I bought it from can buy it back now, he wants it but life is expensive.

Try to avoid the Corbin seat, lowers your hips decreasing leg room, and that seat is hard as a rock!!!!! The D model responds very well to careful tuning. Although it has a 40 degree ignitor rotor, it wants 45. The last version of dyno jets' carb kit works very well.
Interesting point and correct judging by the one I tried for a while on the cbr.

To old IMO but I guess it is good value for money and it is a KAWASAKI of course! :wink:
I kind of like the older bike thing as 2nd bike.
I feel more comfortable parking it and going somewhere.
Newer than the RR anyway.:mrgreen:

not bad,what mods r u thinking of putting on the bike.
Probably not much, already have soft luggage so maybe a throttle locker, throttlemeisters or a cheapy.
And maybe a touring screen if I find one, or a wing thing for the screen it has and fork springs probably.

Oh and braided lines eventually......so basically nothing, just like I told myself.:crackup:

congrats and how about some pics?
Will get some more pics up later, gotta get those HUGE ninja stickers off in the future, hopefully a bunch of the marks from falling will go with, others could be gone with a color sanding.

Nothing too major, the kind that pass as sandy dirt dried on mostly.

Wierd that tail has no marks nor the tank or pipe- static fall each side.

Just mirrors, upper and sides marked some.
