NICE :)

I love the ZRX's

post #304 of 389

wow.. nice looking set of wheels.

 

I have put up my dirt bike up for sale. Don't use it enough to justify keeping it.

 

Street bike still needs a left clip on swap. The ZX-6R clip on really throws off the balance when i ride the R6. Truly scary experience.

 Thanks :)

I need some more recent pictures as I have done some more work on it. 100% garage built by me, I have been tweaking this bike for a little over 4 years now and I'm almost "done" (as if bikes are ever done)

I'm really eyeing one of those Can Am Spyders.. Specifically the RS, at least a '07 or newer. There's a company called Aerocharger that makes a turbo kit for 'em that bumps the horsepower from a stock 93-ish to about 145.

 They are not really that popular here but they seem nice. They do not have great resale here, I figure just buy it and ride it till it dies. lol

Where do you live anyway? In my country, Kawasaki isn't to popular, market are almost controlled by Honda and Yamaha.

 

Anyway, if you're looking for a bike like Kawasaki Fury, check out Suzuki Raider 150/Satria FU150 or Honda Sonic 125. Raider 150 looks like Fury but with 150cc DOHC engine, or even Sonic is better than Fury IMO. Fury is a no-no for me, too much vibration at higher RPMs. I heard Kawasaki is going to revise Fury with new model and probably new engine with manual clutch.

 That is so true! They have no resale in Jakarta. The big bikes made by Kawasaki which still are not that big sell well.

Then I recommend you to try it first before you buy it if that's possible. I'm quite disappointed by Fury's performance and comfort (engine vibration issue) and you might feel the same.

 

In Jakarta, or I might say in whole Indonesia, Kawasaki's "big" bikes are priced higher than average bikes sold there, especially their top of the line, Ninja 250R. That could be one of the reasons why they don't sell very well. Their "big" bikes are also segmented. Not everybody likes 2 strokes sport bike and dirt bikes.

 

I put "big" in quote because they aren't real big bikes. Even 250cc is a laughable learner's bike for Westerners.

I concur Yarrk!! I too didn't know to look for a Motorcycle fi.

 

My riding began in 1981 with a Kawasaki 440 ltd:

like this one at first, then I cafe' d it to a 1/4 mile machine by 1982

 

I Had it for another few years then I went to this:

kawasakih2.jpg

Kawasaki 1975 H2 Triple two stroke.

but that was strictly for racing 1/4's

Until I nearly took myself out, in a luskville fireball.

 

Then I got this beauty:

1986-Yamaha-FAZER-FZx750S.jpg

Loved it and this ride took me around North america Twice

It went off Mount Seymour in 1994, and I almost went with it.

I swore I would get another one, (very Hard to Find tough) so ....one day.

 

So then I had one like this 1989 FJ 1200:

20090615-1697553-1989-Yamaha-FJ1200.jpg

 

until 1997 then a BMW k100rs:

 

images-1.jpeg

 

Toured the southern U.S. with it in 1999.

 

But then I found my baby: 1987 FZx 750 S -FAZER

IMG_0373.jpg

which  started in my life as a salvage piece.  So piece by piece I rebuilt her back to flights of fantasy and cool air, and has been my ride steady since 2001.

 

And Last summer I found her a TWIN SISTER , another 1987 FZx 750 S -FAZER :

house 024.jpg

which is in the stages of an engine rebuild and parts search. But hopefully soon to ride.

 

Oh, and hello fellow riders.
