Changed oil/filter today. Bike has exactly 100 miles. Have to get out that slimus that has the assembly lube, lint, chips and whatever else is in there from new assembly line at the plant.

Installed rear spools so I can use my ZX14 rear lift. I really miss center stands!! Installed windshield  Banana  . I have in the mail some other goodies!!    Bigsmile  

Have to be signed in the see pics.      Headscratch                    Sad

The windshield fits the bike nice! Looks wise.

Yeah, thanks. I would like it a bit bigger but no one makes one bigger. I hope it keeps more wind off the chest. Haven't ridden it yet!

I have a "Fly Screen" on my Griso that does well at taking the wind blast off my torso, but leaves the helmet in pretty clear air. Of course running 80+ into a 25 MPH head wind tires me out pretty quick anyway.

Other goodies in the mail!

 * A new set of handlebars and lower/adjustable foot pegs to make this bike really comfortable are on the way.
 * I have already received the decat pipe! The exhaust servo eliminator doo hiccus is in the mail. This weekend that 10 lb bread box under the engine is going bye bye. I'll lose weight and pick
    up HP!!


The 18t front sprocket is going on soon.

A few more days and I'll add the handguards, 12V power and I am trying to decide on a rear rack. After all that the bike will weigh no more than stock, have more power, will cruise the hiway a lot more comfortably and get great gas mileage. If I bump into someone that wants to play Marq Marquez, OK!.

Getting close. Bike has 569 miles on it. Have already changed oil and filter so I am close to beating on it.     Bigok

Have decat pipe and exhaust valve eliminator chingus.  Less weight more hp!   Bigsmile

Have new air filter and removing air box restrictor when air filter is switched out.    Bigsmile

Have new handlebars with different bend. Lower and adjustable foot pegs are arriving on Friday.    Bigsmile

After dialing everything in my buddy with the modified Yamaha MT10 wants to do roll-ons and see if he can stay with me.

After I run the MT10 I will install the 18t front sprocket. That will gear it up and make the 80 mph cruising better.

I got a good chuckle out of that. Of course, if I was to slip and fall down you would kick me as you walked by.      Bigok                   Bigsmile

Well..................last night I took off the exhaust and cut the pipe. Then I had to remove the catalytic converter(exhaust plug) from the stock pipe, re install the stock pipe and attach the decat pipe and the stock slip on and cover bolts right up. Bingo! WOW! It took hours to get the exhaust plug out of the stock 4-1.       Sad

I tried to attach pictures but no go.

That's it !!!  -- I'm turning you in to the green police...  messing with the intake, fuel-air ratios, and emission controls on a vehicle is a class D felony...     :pokestick:

Some prison time might answer what Blue is best at....  Bigsmile    

How does she feel with the added muscle and diet??  I think it's getting to be too much bike for you - you'll have to sell it soon...    couch

I sit out most mornings in the patio and drink coffee by the fireplace. I look up and watch the jets/passenger jets fly high overhead. We have the airport here and next to it is Kirkland AFB. I've thought about my criminal actions related to this terrible 50 mpg motorcycle and then realize in the time I actually thought about my actions the jets overhead have used more fuel than I will ever use!!! And the stuff they are putting out weights many pounds!! So I guess the saying "bigger fish to fry" comes into play here!!!

Last night I finished the exhaust system it is ready to ride. But, I lifted the gas tank and removed the air box restrictor plate. So I have to get off my can and finish up. Probably another hour to get the bike ready to ride.

Now as for too much power?! Nah. My ZX14 was a monster after I put the Hindle 4-1 on. Made the most HP of all the different brands back then. I had the ECU reflashed to open the secondary throttle plates way faster(almost like pulling the secondary throttle butterflies). On perfect hiway it would spin the tire on throttle only and pull the front at the same time!! If the hiway was not real nice WOW! Hold on, like riding in sand!! Up here at 5,300 feet elevation I took the ZX14 to the dragstrip BEFORE the ECU reflash. Not hitting it as hard as I could it went 10.30 at 138.8 mph. With a little practice I think I could have gotten pretty close to the nines. AT 5,300 feet a normally aspirated engine will lose about 15-17% HP! At sea level we're talking about an easy nine second bike and way over 140. With me on it.

 Hail

I used to ride and swap with a co-worker that had a ZX14 -- my ZX-10R was faster, but his bike made speed effortlessly -- mine needed to be flogged -- and mine got nervous at 150+ unless I dialed the steering damper up or tucked properly - the ZX14 felt planted...  Longer rake and wheelbase on the ZX14???  Never looked into it -- we both decided we had made the right decisions on our bikes...    his 300lbs swamped the ZX-10R  and the ZX14 was a bit much for my 5'6" 150lbs build.

Considering the lack of miles you've put on your last two new bikes, I think that's a pretty safe bet.  Razz
