Ere' Geezers!


As I might have mentioned yesterday - there is a panel missing on the CBR

I'm thinking of buying ..


It's the bit that runs between the fairing lower, runs under the

brake lever and on to form a 'cowl' of sorts over the first part of the exhaust...


I've been having a look around the tinterweb, so far to no avail ..


Do you have any good ideas for sourcing such parts? Breakers and

the like?

I'd get a new one if they don't cost a mint :roll:


Why am I bothered? Cos I want to knock it off the asking price if i decide

to go ahead with the idea :D

houd beat me to it, david silvers are top notch, may be a bit pricey for an oe part though but they are worth a ring to talk to if its not on their website as they can get pretty much anything, they used to get me all sorts for my old nc24

It would be ironic wudnt it :roll:


After many, many, many years of whittling the boooger down, Houdlum finally comes over to the dark side ...


Amd here I am deliberating on whether to get a big girlie Honda :roll:


Ohhh the shame, the shame :oops:



:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

I've found this aswell now :D

It appears to be a grey import - hence logo says "ZX-11"


Have checked with insurance company and I can add it to my policy for £77 8)


Positives? I could get it for £1400


Downsides? Not much history, it's done 41,300 miles ..


Not too worried about the mileage - I know the big Kwak engine is pretty bullet-proof :idea:

I love the old bikes ...


A lot of the bikes which were mega-bucks when I was in my teens are now

going for peanuts now ... And as I'm skint it means I can at least try the delights I missed out on in my youf ...


Yerrr you don't get a lot for your money sometimes, but I do reckon a mint ZZR1100 looks well tastie, ditto ZX-7R, ZX-9R and some of the early 6Rs aren't too shabby either ...


it's a bit naff, but these bikes hold a lot of nostaligia for me :lol:

I'd go for the Kwaker or see what else comes along :D


(to me) close to 2k for the Honda seems a bit too expensive compared to what you could get newer for a similar price...


E.g.: BAM

:D

 

I will have another look around what beamers are up here ..


This R1100 does look alright, but I'm not trecking down to London :wink:

My brother zzrgarry got a zzr1100 and its a cracking bike, weve had the occasional speed tests just to see who could out accelerate and it goes like a rocket. Not the nimblest in the twisties but sooooo stable and good at what is now described as, a hyper tourer. Ideal bike for sitting back and enjoying the scenery at daft speeds 8)

Been to look around a few bikes today ..


Went all the way to Batley to see the CBR1000F - it was a nail!

Defo had a shunt at some point...


But ... Went to Leeds on the way back and this:


http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s210/edster71/ZX11one.jpg


was an absolute peach!


Been very well looked after, and, after some hassle starting (fuel gone off etc) purred like a kitten :D

Has been very well looked after!


And the other good news? I was offered £500 part/ex for my Merc ...


Now, I just need to work out the finances ... :roll:

Had a ZZR1100 for 11 years, and they accelerate just as quick as anything else if not quicker cause they dont wheelie. The front brakes are crap though, but they're all like that, even if you put braided hoses on, they're still spongy. The back brake does make up for it though, its the only bike I've rode where you can actually stop using just the rear brake. Tank range is superb if you go long distance, had 230miles on one tank once. As for handling, I could keep up with any other bike in the twisties and I used to love riding round R1's and GSXR's in the corners. Another bonus is they have a centre stand which comes in usefull and eccentric adjusters which are the dogs bollocks.

yeah Voodoo---ZZR1100 is a great bike--had one for very short time--been looking to get another and there are some cracking examples around--solid power with super stability--and yep the front brakes are not the best--need regular work.
