    quality is top notch...fitted perfectly, took about 15 mins. slips over the existing radiator top mount, and a couple of zip ties secure the bottom.
    Instructions are easy to follow.

    Yeah they seem to be compatible with a fair few brands. No idea about newfangled bikes with complex harnesses though...my beamer's 40-year old harness was pretty straightforward. It's an Acewell unit though so have a google and see what your options are.

    Mine measures speed from the gearbox and take the revs straight from the coils but again, no idea how that translates to modern machines.

    Gave the girl a blood transfusion yesterday. She was run in on mineral 1000 - 5000 on semi and now onto Motul 7100 (which if you havenít used it before, is literally blood red)

    FWIW - if you havenít tried it, give it a go. There is a substantial positive difference to both noise (sounding a lot cleaner) and how smooth the bike now is.

    Using the correct oil weight is the important part. Whether you spend $100 on a bottle like motul Or $45 on something like Penrite is irrelevant if theyíre the same weight. Cheap oil changed often is better than wanky expensive oil changed infrequently.

    Thereís even a thread on it..

    Yep, surprisingly I have to agree with this Even cheap Kmart etc oil can be OK as long as it's changed much more regularly as it'll break down quicker

    They all come out the same colour after a similar distance, so I'd have to disagree with you on that Craig. I tried about 5 or 6 different brands in the same bike between 2015 and 2017 and anecdotally there was no difference, and I don't know of any studies that confirm that spending more = more quality.

    It follows the same logic people use that 98 octane fuel somehow gives more power or more 'quality' than 95 or 91, which has been proven multiple times on multiple dynos to have no discernible effect.

    The colour they come out isn't really a good indicator of how well the oil is working just how much sludge etc is in the sump/engine and what sort of impurities are in the fuels used I've been on many forums with guys that either work in the oil/petrochemical industry or work in somewhere like heavy haulage etc where they actually test the oils that come out of their engines and most seem to say using the correct specification oil from a decent company/range is the way to go
    A bit like with helmets, you can buy a dirt cheap helmet with minimal features/quality that will do the job for a short time or spend a bit more and get one that will fit better, be more comfortable, last longer and have more features

    I will agree though that there is a point where spending exponentially more isn't going to get you any better outcome, again with helmets I don't believe spending $12-1500 on a Rossi/Marquez etc branded Shoei/Arai will get you an XX amount better helmet than say a $5-600 OGK/Bell etc it's all about branding and markup IMO

    Same with oils, companies like Motul/Bel-Ray etc have had links with MC sports for a long time and cash in on that as do Mobil/Shell etc with car racing when some of the reports I've read show that they sell products for MC's that are essentially the same as the car spec ones but charge 50%+ more just because they are for a MC

    Fuels to a degree are different in as far as yes putting 98 in a vehicle designed for 91 wont make it run better and may actually make it run worse
    Saying that running 91 in a vehicle designed/modified for 95 or 98 will show a difference either in worse mileage/less power/pinging or even damage at the extremes

    I've kept records with my bike and cars over the years and the bike shows no real preference between 91-98 apart from it "seeming" to run slightly smoother on Caltex Vortex 95 in particular, economy and power didn't seem to be appreciably any different and I tend to use the V95 only because of the perceived smoothness and due to having a fuel card through my partners work it doesn't cost me anything

    The XR6T though doesn't like 91, (book says 95+) I only used it once when there was only 91 available and it ran like shit
    It does get better economy and feels like slightly more grunt on 98 vs 95 but only slightly and to be honest for the extra cost I probably wouldn't run 98 if I was paying for it

    Pretty much done with the ZX7R;



    After picking it up,
    • Gave it a service it desperately needed.
    • New timing chain.
    • Shims/clearances done.
    • Fork seals replaced.
    • Put in a K&N air filter.
    • New clutch slave cylinder.
    • New brake master cylinder and clutch master cylinder (went with 19mm radial Nissin).
    • New Nissin calipers on the front (basically a ZX7RR setup).
    • New chain (red) and sprockets.
    • Braided Goodridge lines all round.
    • Cut the stalks off the oggy knobs and recessed them further into the fairing.
    • Took the headers off and wire wheeled them and painted black.
    • Tidied up the mirror supports and also the lower radiator bracket.
    • Got a tinted screen after about 2 months of waiting but massive improvement over the UV attacked clear one.
    • Tinted indicators (not 100% on these).



    I still have an under tail to go on it once I pull my finger out and trim it so that I can keep the stock fender. And once I get a job again I'll replace the rear shock with a Bitubo item.

    You might call it "excessive weight"
    But i recon a seat is a good thing
    Note: this may not be the universe where the above is relevant.

    minimalistic... its all the rage with the kids these days and harder for "whoop whoop" to identify

    I think so far the 7 is the bike on which I have spent the least money on. Both in initial purchase cost and service/parts.

    That bike owes me less than $2500. Best bargain I've had in ages.

    ...and even with a fat guy laying all over it, looks this good and in her first race meet hit 55.7 around Collie with the fat guy slowing her down. Money well spent I say.

    My brother's '06 ZX12 - just ticked over 24k on the clock so we gave it its first big service and sorted a few things for his ride to Phillip Island next month.. Mostly standard typical stuff..

    *valve clearances - 8 shims changed
    *spark plugs replaced
    *New cam cover gasket set, cam sensor seal, timing cover seal
    *oil/filter
    *coolant flushed/changed
    *new radiator cap and lower temp radiator fan switch
    *throttle body sync and TPS adjusted
    *BMC filters cleaned/reoiled
    *clutch cable readjusted
    *chain adjusted, cleaned, lubed
    *brake fluid replaced with RBF600
    *fork oil and seals changed
    *Ohlins rear shock serviced and fitted
    *steering/swingarm/shock linkage bearings regreased
    *new Michelin Road 5 tyres fitted
    *few fasteners replaced
    *Woolich harness hooked into ECU plug
    Few other things

    Just need to fit crash knobs, throttle lock and get suspension set up a bit better.
    Tuning is also on the to do list, with the Woolich set up
