Kawasaki ZRX1200R description
2002 Kawasaki ZRX1200R. 5048 original miles. New tires, Michelin Pilot Road 4. Valve adjustment and new gaskets. Carburetors disassembled and cleaned with ďIvanís jet kit for air boxĒ added. ELS advancer. Rear swing arm spools. All new fluids, synthetic oil. All else original.
This bike is in very good condition. It runs flawlessly and has a nice shine. It has a golden glow when the sun hits it at certain angles. If you look close, there are a few fine scratches on the tank. It is hard to pick up with the camera. I put about 400 miles on the bike/tires and may put on a few more to make sure everything is cool (me included). I donít ride it as much as I would like. The tires where installed front and back as the first replacement set. The pictures show the tire date as week and year as well as tread. I also showed the valves to indicate the cleanliness of the engine. The specs are documented as well. This is clearly a low mileage bike.
In addition to changing all the fluids, I flushed the gas tank. It is a recommended service. I ran a tank with a set of filters on the bike and then replaced the fuel line with new OEM. No dirt found. I use fuel additive because of Ethanol in fuel these days. The carburetor jets and 4-degree advancer is a must for these bikes because it responds so well to the change. The improvements show in the responsiveness at any RPM and smooth acceleration as well as quick starts. The jet kit has been dyno tested for this type of bike by Ivanís Performance.
I prefer stock exhaust because I like it quiet. At cruise, I can only hear the wind on my helmet and donít see the bike. I makes me feel like I am floating. A pipe/canister may increase power a bit and sounds really nice (this is my second ZRX in the years). I also prefer the original windscreen because even though aftermarket windscreens take the wind off your chest, it diverts wind to the helmet making it load even with my Shoe. I donít go crazy fast, but I doubt the impact of the air.
The original owner dropped the bike on its side moving it. He replaced the clutch lever and the turn signal assembly. I painted the anti-vibration weight on the end of the handlebar. There is also a scrape on the swing arm, which may be attributed to the drop. There is no other damage. There is not much more to say about the bike that I can think of other than nothing will get away from you. They may pull away a bit (ZX14 and others) but you will be right there. Also, roll the throttle moderately on fast acceleration or the front wheel is coming up high. I included a picture incidentally next to its grandfather. The old GPzís are where my heart is with Kawasaki. Ask questions if you are interested. Thanks for looking.

Max Biaggi strengthened his hold on the 2012 World Superbike Championship lead with a pair of wins at Italy’s Misano circuit. The Aprilia rider out-battled the Althea Ducati duo of Carlos Checa and Davide Giugliano to win Race One before taking a relatively easier Race Two victory. Before the races, WSBK riders lined up on the starting grid to hold a banner expressing their support for the Emilia region in northern Italy which has been suffering from earthquakes and continuing aftershocks since late May.Fri, 06 Dec 2013 00:00:00 -0800
