Rock please....Insults. Now now dont lie to yourself much less the rest of us. It's well documented the queen world considers that forplay and yes you do seem exceptional at it. Guess the ole saying of practice makes perfect is true.

Beautiful bike and ready for mod 1. No better money you will ever spend on the bike.

Yeah thats probably going to happen, just gotta decide first If I want to put the akra header on it. It is my understanding this would save like 20lbs. Lord knows I don't need it for speed.

Sweet mother of speed, ring that Beast out tommorrow and give us the wow factor.
Unfortunately not going to happen today. The weather is not great and after work I got to take my 91 yr old dad to get a new car. Tomorrow looks like a good day.

I always love it when you make absolutely no sense in your posts... clear indication of syphyllis gone untreated. Syphilis of the anal variety. If you're going to let huge number of men take you like the little f-ck cushion you are, you better require protection!
Speaking of practice, is that what you "guys" call it? Target practice? You little bullseye you... or browneye? 😀

These bikes are so powerful, adding an header.....I dont know. I'm at the same spot, now. So far, no header. I would see a larger power gain than you would. The c14 has a header like the ninja. Way too small.

But the bike is so quiet. Its damn near silent going through the neighborhoods, and I love that.

The ninja flash is amazing, but calling it that doesnt leave words for the zx14 flash. Ivan sells the 14 series flash for 350. After using it, I told him he should raise the price to 750-1000. Doing so would have shown what a premium product it really is. He didnt, but it would have been worth paying that much if he wanted to charge it.

This would be 10% about more power. Although that's nice, what becomes unreal is the accurate fine throttle control and lack of restrictions. Your bike is newer so it's more restricted than the 2012 that ivan used for his dyno runs.

The header dropped about 20 lbs from my ninja. I saw that when I rolled it on to the scale. Maybe I noticed it, in real life, but it was nothing compared to the 6oz removed from my flywheel, or running the bike with a 1/2 full fuel tank.

Then again, look at this dyno chart. 205 hp on 10% ethanol, pump gas. 100% stock engine.....,yea, you better add the header. No loss, anywhere.

If I bought a zx14, the flash would be my first purchase. After that, tires. I'm not 100% sure what tires I would get. Probably another set of Pirelli agt, the originals, in the A spec. The a spec just feels so strong and secure with its stiff sidewall. 190/55 rear. The zx14 uses the old generation traction control. No issues with it and a 190/55 like you have with the ninja.

If I were trying to remove weight, the exhaust would be next. You already have the good slip ons.

The stock weight is supposed to be 593. Akra says its -5.7kg for the slip on and -6.8kg for the header. 12.5kg, total. That doesnt sound impressive until its converted over to lbs. 12.5 x 2.2= 27.5 lbs.

That's 593-27.5=565. The bike is a 2017, isnt it? Or a 2018? If so, the battery is a few years old. The stock battery is car sized. A shorai will drop another 5 lbs easy, if not more, and is about as reliable as a pet rock. Mine is 7 yrs old and works as well as the day I bought it.

That's 560 lbs. 15lbs lighter than a stock h2sx. That's crazy, and 205 hp. Real power that's verified. Real weight. Not bullshit, claimed weight. 560 is light enough.

After that, a set of Vesrah brake pads for the front and rear.

The strange mod would be the Factory Pro shift kit. It's close to 200.00. More if you have to pay someone to instal it. You dont need it, but it makes the transmission feel like it's been blueprinted. The shifts are so exact and precise. If a person is pushing the bike, this kit will save a transmission from being torn up.

Set up the suspension, properly. It's not like a ninja where you are pissing into the wind. The 14 suspension pieces are ok. It's not soft, at all. The faster you go, the better it feels.

Maybe a set of oxford hot grips? The big, fat, silly looki g grips really agree with me. A throttle lock, for sure. They dont really make a cheap kit. I used one of the plastic locks and glued it to the throttle housing. I bought a spare, from ebay, to practice on. I think it was 8.00.

For me, that would be close to the perfect zx14. Other than making a run for Congress and seeing if I could get the national speed limit increased to 150. That's the biggest issue these 14 bikes have. My c14 suffers from the same problem, on a smaller scale. 80mph on these feels like 35 on the ninja. The bikes were never built, or designed with 80mph speed limits. They are much more happy at 130+. At higher speeds, the suspension is right...the riding position. The airflow. All beter the faster you go.

FWIW The bike is a 2019. Also it's resting in its Baxley Bed. I can't believe I went my whole biking life without a Baxley. It is truly amazing.

I wish the ZX14R worked for me. My body just doesn't work with it. I'm 5'11" (ok, I've shrunk in my old age, but you get the point), 31" inseam, short arms. I sit over the top of the windscreen and it feels like the wind is going to throw me off. I recently grabbed a 2004 ZX12R. Better ergonomics for me, I love the looks, a little lighter than a 14R, much less power than the 14R and no Ivan's flash available. I have a full Muzzy exhaust for it and am installing lighter 2011 ZX10R wheels. It'll have to do since I can't make the ZX14R work for me.

Nah. I think you are about as down as a human can get.
Hey, but look at the bright side. There's cheap online grammar classes for developmentally disabled adults!
With some hard work (that obviously have yet to do), in a few years your posts might actually be quasi intelligible!

Baxley......yes, I feel like we need to say a prayer, or hold some sort of ceremony whenever its mentioned. Have you ever seen such a well designed product? The thing is like a snap on tools ratchet. Other products do the same damn thing, but not like the real thing does.

I'm sure Kawasaki did not want to deal with high speed testing , but the Ninja saddlebags would have been nice. A slight redesign of the rear brackets would have done it.

The zx12 was one of a kind. If someone was 5'4" and 130lbs, maybe they needed a small, lightweight 1000 cc track bike? Otherwise I cant think of a good reason to buy a zx10 instead of a zx12. The 12 was a supersport bike for a grown up. Stock it might not make 200hp, but it has torque and its smooth. It's a supersport bike for a smart person. Theres no good reason to stay with 998cc unless you race. Plus, you can get a nice one for 4500. The hop up potential is endless.

If you went back far enough, you would find a post , or two where Rock and I were being shitty to each other. It was no big deal until halfway through it, we had a mutual friend who ended up dead.

Dont get me wrong. I've been mean after that, but that was one of the worst feelings I've ever had. It wasnt like we caused it, or as if we made it worse. We didnt. I think what bothered me is that while I was thinking of something nasty to say, what did I miss? Why didnt I call Jay instead of worrying about how to be an asshole? I know I'm not anyone who could have prevented that, and that's good because I was wasting g my time being a dick and would never have had the oportunity.

Dang the eye doctor got me fitted for some new glasses, talking about a game changer I been living in a fog, they come in today and every thing is clear insteads of blurry, I’ll probably have to get a bigger helmet to be able to wear them without bending the frames, can’t wait to try them out with the bike, but doctor said if I have the cataract surgery they want work. But the way the corona is spiking I’m looking for them to shut stuff down again so at least I can see clearly untill I can get the surgery.
