Mr. Hibbs u r da Man!! Are you still here in the USA?
Thank you Mr Hill! This is actually an old video, it was from Memorial Day this year when I went home to visit family right before I left country. Hence me riding a borrowed bike and not the mighty ZX12R. I didn't plan on racing, but when a friend offered his bike up to me I couldn't refuse.

Pierre did this On his 12's and sent me the Parts to do this myself. I am (As Usual) in the Middle of a Bunch of Projects, but I will Work it out and start a Thread with Cost and where to get what done from Start to Finish!! So give me a Few Weeks ok? (Plus, now is Riding weather:):):)

Also I need to check on Lock up Applications which we did not discuss.

No Need, Pierre gave me "4" clutch assemblies 2 of each 12& 14 Billet and Stock. I am only 20 miles from Falicone. I will take Pics and get off of Mr. Hibbs Thread. I actually thought this was Old News?? Plus I guess everyone also knows that the BUSA & 14 both use the SAME Clutch Plates.

Please be Patient it will take a little while.

You know we well enough to know that someone will need to Kill me to stop me from keeping my word. For me, this is something that should have been done to begin with. I hope to be FINISHED by September and Post the Pics and information.

I would like to get one of these Mr Hill if the price is right. preferably as a slider basket so I can add a gen 2 mtc multi later on.

Kearney Raceway Park, in Kearney Nebraska. The first time I had thrown a leg on this bike was an hour before when I hopped on it at my buddy's house and then I rode it to the track. It is a very comfortable bike. They are torquey down low and very easy to launch. Not as "raw" feeling as my personal A1 (with mods). Overall I would say it is smoother and more comfortable then an A1 as a street bike but only little differences, not enough to say a guy should sell his A1 solely for the purpose of "upgrading" to a gen 1 zx14. I couldn't do it just off the fact I think gen 1 zx14s are ugly, though this one looks good all green and the smooth side panels. But as prices of gen 1 zx14s keep getting lower and lower, it's a great bike if you can pick one up in a color scheme that you like.

Mr. Hibbs, you just Nailed the reason I stopped buying New Kawasaki's. They became to Hondaized! All of the Motorcycle feeling Engineered out of them!! I like the fact that you could actually stall the A1 if you did not take off carefully. For me, that is the Last bike Kawasaki made that felt like a Kawasaki! The Heavier Crank, Cam throttle Opener all detracted from the bike. As Outlaw knows the Noise of Straight cut Gears and the Herky Jerky Carburation of the 2 Strokes meant Raw Power. Totally missing Nowadays.
