Known issues?

Hello!

I'm new to the forum and planning to go pick up a 2012 zx1000 tomorrow. I'm not very familiar with the forum yet, but I haven't been able to find a thread that summarizes known common issues. Does such a thread exist?

Thanks!

It appears to be a very reliable bike overall. Buy it and ride the snot out of it, hehe.

The biggest issue is trying to stop giggling. The second is the excessive tickets. The third is a sore butt. The fourth is constantly cleaning bugs off the windscreen.

There were a couple of 17's have the same issue with a cooling system seal. Think it was in the oil cooler. Then 4 bikes that I've read of have had ABS pump failures. Kawasaki replaced the pump with the owner only having to pay labor. A very dependable bike with more then one owner near or over 100'000 miles.
