Gave her a wink and a pat on the tail piece. That'll do for today, don't want to spoil her

Titanium bleed nipples.... marvellous

Rode some. Rubbed the polished parts (wheels and levers). It was a good day.

Ordered a set of braided brake lines, told the old brake lines it was nothing personal and decided the rear tyre will last one more track day.

I picked up a Green A1 ZX12, with 25,000 miles on the clock, last week, for a good price.


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.

Is that the radial ones, with the brackets we saw at 'The UK 12 Meet'.


Thanx Dave.

If I posted what I have spent on this bike, I would surely be committed to an insane asylum.

Last big ticket item was a full set of ABM rotors.

A zx-12 is like a crack addiction. You want to stop, but damn the high is so good.

Charged the battery and looked for a place to get my OZ Piega wheels powder coated.
