  1. WHEELIES!!!!

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    Ill have to Disagree with you f2dog.. I've been puttin hella miles on this bike doing wheelies daily. It DOES NOT lift more than an inch or two without using the clutch in 2nd. Unless your super light or scoot far back - i believe this would be a stretch without the help of the clutch.

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    Yea, it may seem more dangerous than our actual situation. Several of those roads surround a single farmers property that my friend in the video knows personally. There is rarely A SINGLE car that drives those roads
  3. I'm at 15,000 miles. Valve check? Other service?

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    Im at 2500 in 2 months.. But props Jeff! .. Im an automotive mechanic of 7 years and my advice at 15,000 would be the all over typical tune up/check: new spark plugs, new air filter, oil change (unless done recently), chain tension/inspection/lube, sprocket inspection/service, check axle bolts...

    I bought a 2013 and drove it home with 2 miles on it. Here's what I did - under 4,000rpm for 500mi like owners manual stated (changed oil at 450mi).. then up to 7-7500 for about 200mi - then wide open runs up to 11,250 changing the oil right after.. Bike has 2500mi on it now and it feels...

  8. WHEELIES!!!!

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    Its just not some peoples thing and I still respect Cadman and Blacksheep as fellow motorcycle riders. I guess its more for us who have horsed around a lot on dirt bikes and bicycles at the younger ages.. Just cant resist on a high powered, Good looking 2 Wheel Machine once you've grown a bit!!
  9. WHEELIES!!!!

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    Strange that you to tend to drift right.. I would be curious if the rear wheel alignment was correct on the more recent street bikes you've ridden. Other than that - have you tried to scoot a hair left before going up?

  13. Ninja 1000 EXHAUST!!!!

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    Alright.. So I spoke with a Kawasaki Engineer. He explained to me that the stock, 'bulky' exhaust on the Ninja 1000 Model 'centralizes and keeps a low center of gravity on the bike adding to its handling capabilities.' So I don't know if this will effect anyone from changing it because I love...

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    True that. don't have to remove anything to change the oil!!. Btw, changed the oil for the third time yesterday and neither that time or the previous did I have to burp the filter. I love this bike!!
  16. N1K oil pressure light on after oil change

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    Yea. The bike is running beautifully and I am very pleased thus far. Just a slight inconvenience you have to worry about this every oil change. I read from two sources that when this happens.. the engine indeed does not have oil pressure - technicians removed the oil pressure switch with the...

  18. N1K oil pressure light on after oil change

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    So I purchased a brand new 2013 N1k. At 450mi I did my first oil change. Just like on any other bike i've owned - I opened the oil fill cap, removed drainplug, removed filter and let out for several minutes. Installed new filter - re tightened drain plug, filled with oil and re installed fill...

  20. Just Bought 2013 Ninja 1000

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    Cadman, Its awesome to hear you say that. I did my research before I made a purchase and I couldn't be more pleased. The 650 is the only other street motorcycle I have owned, plenty of motocross bikes tho. But yes, this feels to handle better than the 650 no doubt.
