  1. FILTER SHOOT OUT, Standard filter V K&N V DNA, z1000

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    Air filter update: I tried both. The BMC & K&N are not perfect fits. They do not, I repeat, do not drop in, like OEM. The OEM is the absolute best & perfect fit. Anyone, who says different, is lying. They are not good enough to make or install aircraft parts. They're dead. - Aviation Electrician...
  2. FILTER SHOOT OUT, Standard filter V K&N V DNA, z1000

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    BMC-Standard ... BMC-S I went, with the BMC standard air filter element because MOTOGP & WSBK uses the brand. I also read, that it flows more than K&N. The K&N air filter element is definitely a way better fit, way better made and way better quality but I'm giving BMC a chance. Keep in mind...
  3. Need Help Electrical Problem Starting Bike

    General ZR-7
    A battery can display 12, 13 or 14 volts, with a multimeter and not have the cranking amps (CA) to "Run" a vehicle or just amps, in short. If your instrument's lights didn't come, after multiply tries, you completely discharged the battery's current (I), your amperages. Prior components, before...
  4. LED Lights and Battery Issues

    Ninja 650R Maintenance
    It is termed "residual voltage" and the electronic circuit has to have a fault, for the condition to occur. For example, a faulty switch, relay, fuse panel or aftermarket contacts are too close together, or improperly contained. That allows amperage distribution, where arching & sparking can...

  6. Said goodbye to the Concours this morning,

    Concours 1400
    Don't Buy U.K MOTOS Why did you get the Triumph then? Everyone knows it isn't, what they say it is. Stick to mainstream reliable, like the Kawi GTR 1400 or Honda VFR. Triumph lost & doesn't enter GP racing for a reason, less skilled riders. :BS:
  7. Inherited a 2014 Ninja 1000, question about Akrapovic system installed

    4th Gen Z1000/Ninja 1000
    If you change your exhaust, especially to an AK, you will loose your tuning, emissions & MPG. A dealer can void your warranty & if it ever undergoes a real inspection, it fails. It wouldn't pass white collar or business. Then, you spend more money & time retuning it, dynos, more electronics &...
  8. Muffler weight

    4th Gen Z1000/Ninja 1000
    Emissions, there goes the planet. I would leave the stock mufflers on.
  9. Z1000 in PlayStation 4's "Ride"

    4th Gen Z1000/Ninja 1000
    Does anyone play motorcycle video games? "Ride" on PlayStation 4 has the Kawasaki 2014 Z1000, which is similar to the Ninja 1000. Power upgrades for the motorcycle include: 1. ECU - 1.8 hp/1.4 nm 2. BMC Air Filter - 1.8 hp/1.4 nm 3. Akrapovic - 4.9 hp/3.8 nm 4. Cylinder Head Porting 6.2 hp/4.8...
  10. 2014 Ninja 1000 - Mods and Dyno

    4th Gen Z1000/Ninja 1000
    Ha, 10-15 hp gain, without head, port, cam or polishing work. Don't think so. What did he get? 4 hp. :2far:
  11. Who's done spark plugs on their N1K?

    4th Gen Z1000/Ninja 1000
    About 7 minutes on a ZX9R, 1 minute & 30 seconds to remove tank. -10 minutes on a 350 & 370Z 6 cylinder. That's, with the plugs pre-gapped & tools laid out. To change plugs on an N1K, -10 minutes.
  12. Anyone race, amateur or pro?

    Sportbike Spot
    No. The only real track in Texas is Circuit of the Americas (COTA), where MOTOGP races only once per year. I go, every year & watch Rossi, Marquez, Lorenzo & Pedrosa. It's an F1 circuit as well. COTA is the best, in the U.S. It has the highest international certification. Other tracks are too...
  13. Do I Really Have To Change My Oil Every Year?

    Off Topic/Fun
    Once per year here.
  14. Anyone ride the new Bandit 1250s?

    4th Gen Z1000/Ninja 1000
    You are right and no, I would not buy a Bandit. In comparing the Ninja 1000 & GSX-S1000F, be aware of what you get & don't get. The Suzuki GSX-S100F doesn't have: ⦁ An adjustable windshield ⦁ More fairings ⦁ Power modes ⦁ Drilled & petal brake rotors ⦁ Integrated front turn lights ⦁ Chassis...
  15. Engine building 101

    Mean Streak Performance Upgrades
    I disagree. It takes more than know how. For example, mechanical engineering degree from Texas A&M University or a B.S in Engineering - Electronics might at times, just land a tech job or as a tech supervisor. For that, you have to pass, every math class. 2018 Kawasaki ZX-10RR 454.2 lbs...
