Finally got a ZX12R....!!!!

Postby KiwiMat » Sun Dec 10, 2023 9:16 pm

Hey guys, finally got a ZX12R. 2005 . 52,000km.
Had it a week, battery died... new battery. last guy did 1000km in a year i think. Rear brakes felt terrible, fitted a Venhill braided line and SBS pads today, old brake fluid was pretty bad. Front brakes are okish, already have racing setup braided lines... look the same as the ZX10R 2007 Toki,s with the multi brake pad setup, got some monoblock CBR1000 2011 calipers on the way, prob need 5mm spacers.. we will see. or worse.. they dont fit.....
Yoshi pipe... nice note.
Tyres are barley worn. Rosso 2's... better check the date on them, will be putting Metzler M9's or M7's when these are done.
Rear Pegs are a bit high for my 5'10" wife..... will have to look into that, might interfear with the Yoshi having lowered pegs...
New Levers are on order
Ventura rack is a must.
I can see a power commander 3 tucked under the rear
seat cavity... green bar is lit on the lowest fuel setting.. i dont know anything about these, input a PC5 on my 07 zx10 and took it to a guy to tune on the dyno. Do i need to do this, or just have a look at the current map its using... ????
Has front and rear camera and a thing under the seat with a screen. makes a jingle bells sound when you bump the bike. need to learn more about that too.
No ZX12 sticker on LHS.... bit sus?... dunno, doesnt look like its been dropped or crashed... bike tracks perfectly straight with your hands off the bars.
Slimline LED rear blinkers.
Small crack in the coolant overflow viewing strip. Will replace.. anyone got one? or a smear of clear silicone first.
Thanks everything i have spotted so far.

So the ride.... f@##%in beautiful!!. Silky smooth gearbox, loads of torque, not really enough time to look down at speed when pinned through 2nd and 3rd gear... Ha.

Better keep this one.
Power Commander 3 advice plz.

So the front brakes on my recently acquired 2005 ZX12R are well know for being crap, turns out they are the same crap calipers that were on my 2007 ZX10R. I got a set of second hand CBR1000RR 2011 Tokico monoblock calipers for $170 delivered which i was pretty sure would fit. They did fit!!..... with 5mm spacers... (thanks Gyro for milling them up). Got some SBS RST brake pads. The bike already has braided lines.
Piston were grubby, so gave them a good clean before pushing them back in. Anyway will give it a maiden run tommorow to work, but they feel good just pushing the bike around.
