ZZR1400 Secondary butterflies & Remap

Hi,


just wondering if anyone has carried out the removal of the secondary butterflies and remap of an early ZZR1400 (2006)?


Is it a difficultexpensive job or can a remap alone sort it out?

blowing like a motherf*cker

blowing like a motherf*cker

Lads i fitted an after market can to my bike about a year ago. I sealed the joint with Exhaust sealant and all was good.


It recently started blowing in the area of the joint. The diameter of the aftermarket exhaust and the pipe at the end of the headers are not a tight fit. The exhaust paste did the trick but i would prefer not to be redoing this again next year.


Can anyone recommend a product that might help. Is there a metal gauze that you can get or a better solution out there?


Thanks lads

One for the fazer owners.

One for the fazer owners.

Hi lads. I recently picked up a set of crash bars for the old type box eye fazer 600.my problem is on the left hand of the bike the radiator hose completely blocks the bolt hole that lines up the crash bar. I can not move the hose out of the way and if I put a spacer in, the crash bar extends out from the engine. Was just wondering if any fazer owners had encountered this problem. The hose is 23mm inside diameter, 31mm outside diameter with a 4or5mm wall thickness. Does anyone know if a length of this hoseing can be bought in Ireland or is it UK only. Hose would also have to have a bend put in it. I had problems locateing hoseing for the r1 in the past. So any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks lads

Suspension on Street Triple R

Suspension on Street Triple R

So I recently purchased a 15 Street Triple R form the UK

& would like to get my suspension setup. Now my idea

is to go out to NDM & get them to do it but I would like

any advice on the figures i got. (see pic) I seem to have

40mm on front & 38mm on back. By most accounts the

recommend sag is 25 – 30 mm for road use.

Why is mine so far off. The manual says pre-load

adjustment is not possible on the back so how do I change that.

I know I can adjust the front but but I am correct in saying they need

to be the same?

Any help or suggestions would be welcome.
