From yesterday and today removed front brakes and MC, wheel, forks, took apart head stem (after finding slight 'notching' when checking bar to bar movement - thought now was a good time to replace headstem bearings). Later today will put in new headstem bearings (including seals and races).

Awaiting for return of '04 radial mount front forks with new RaceTech internals and will mount the zx14 MC and Nissin radial calipers I purchased...Then do my first throttle body balance with MotionPro set I just bought!

Sometimes I get just as much pleasure tinkering and fixing things on this bike as I do riding it!

Be interesting to see if you guys feel any difference when you balance the throttle body's?

There's nothing wrong with a extra wheel. A1 Model year 2000

Yep, I'm hoping to find some difference too!

Also just put in new roller style bearings and races in the headstem, have to give a big thanks to Warp12 as I got stuck with the different style of bearings to OEM and looked up his massive thread on his 1287 project bike to see pics and tips on install - finally found them on page 30!!!

Yea, I should have looked at your avatar better, I can see there radial now.

I thought the radial braked 12's stopped really well

Or are you swapping the calipers, 'because you can'.



Thanx Dave.

So far,

17 tooth front sprocket,
TPS mod,
static ignition advance,
quick action throttle insert,
front caliper strip and rebuild,
fit the alarm properly,
remove Oxford Hot Grips, replace with standard,
repair wobbly left mirror lens (will be on website soon),
'cat' already removed,
took Quill exhaust can apart, made it into a straight through, not optimum, but better,

To do,

air filters, k&n or bmc, choices,
kleen air removal and vacuum procedure,
oil and filter.
re-make exhaust hanger,
replace right, rear indicator lens, melted for some reason, luggage I think.
and a bloody good clean

It had plugs when I serviced it last year, but will check them, NGK CR9EIX

And I'll have to have a look into a throttle body sync, not done that on a 12 before.

edit: its got a 'B' model front mudguard


Thanx Dave.

Very nice dave! I've been to your sight a few times, and it's obvious you know your way around ZX12's. Did you sell your red one?
