COOL :kuda: :kuda: :kuda: :kuda:

I am really impressed with my old girl, I commute 55klms each way every day to and from work :kuda: . Includes light, medium and heavy traffic as well as freeway south to Campbelltown.

It has 56K odd klms, any thing I should look out for??

Yep! Cages.

Kidding aside - I have had no issues with my ZZR, except for cam pitting at around 50k. Fixed for free by Kawasaki Australia.

Here it is:

Yep, still rides like day 1.

I swapped out the front rotors, because they were slightly warped.
It also has aftermarket mufflers (Staintunes) because they sound better.
I put on stainless steel brake lines, and use a K&N filter with a Factory Pro jet kit.
What else - Genmar risers.
Double bubble screen.

Now you can start to open her up
My ZZR1100 has just over 100K and still runs fine I would have been adding another 1000 on it this weekend. I am going to use the FJR instead

144,000 km on it now. Once again did the ride to PhillipIsland and back.
Since the top end overhaul, it runs better than ever.

Would have had more kms on it, but I also have to ride the ZRX (it gets jealous otherwise), which now has 146,000 km on it, and is still going strong.
:D
