  1. Post your ZR pictures - pics here

    General ZR-7
    Then and Now My Trusty ZR-7S, circa 2013 or so, and her subsequent replacement, a 2014 Honda CBR-650f. I acquired the ZR new in 2002 and put just about 60,000 miles on her prior to getting the Honda. I got the Honda in January of 2015 and it currently has 20,000 miles on it. A good...
  2. Highest mileage ZR7

    General ZR-7
    I bought my 2002 ZR-7S new and rode it until the end of 2014 when I replaced it with a new Honda CBR-650F. My ZR had 59,000 plus miles on it when I let it go. Unfortunately, I did not have a garage, so the bike spent its life out side. I did keep it covered, but, the weather really did cause it...
  3. New helmet needed

    Daily Ride
    I've been pleased with Scorpion helmets of late. I'm on my 3rd one. The most recent is a EXO-510. It has the flip down sun visor, which I truly like. It also has the "pump up" cheek pads. Which help it to be a bit more quiet. The only thing I don't like, mine rides down on my forehead, very near...
  4. The time has come to let the bike go

    General ZR-7
    Similar for me.... I know what you mean Pete. My '02 was just shy of 60,000 miles. Unfortunately, it was never garaged. It had some left side cosmetic damage from a low side in the spring of 2011. The carb boots were cracked and the idle adjustment gave up (broke) in 2012. Meaning I could...

  6. Group riding: suck b*lls or enhances the experience?

    Off Topic/Fun
    I've since given up on alcohol at all -- I've learned that I really don't have an option. However, "back in the day", I was more than happy to have "a few" once we were back at the hotel and swapping lies about the day's adventure.... Like you, even back then, I tried to stick to a single...
  7. Group riding: suck b*lls or enhances the experience?

    Off Topic/Fun
    Ride On The Ridge... I'm with you as far as group rides are concerned. For a while I rode with a local Southern Cruisers group. Nice enough folks. But, they wanted to stop every 20 - 30 minutes for something. And then dining was more about alcohol than food... NOT working for me. Stopped that...
  8. How to remove front wheel?

    ZR-7 Maintenance
    I've been here a while... And I recall a post about this from our dear friend Graeme Gould "Down Under". Please have a look at this (http://www.riderforums.com/zr-7-maintenance/7622-zr-7-bike-stands.html) thread and see if it might help....
  9. Any Honda CBR-650F Owners???

    Other Bikes
    I agree gents.... The exhaust LOOKS fine. I don't mind that at all. But, it is SO QUIET! Even more quite than my old ZR-7 with the stock can on it. And certainly MUCH more quiet then the ZR with the D&D on it!!! I am learning to adjust. It doesn't change the bike's performance at all. It is...
  10. I LOVE MY BIKE!

    The Training Ground - New Riders!
    From your photo that looks to be the same color we had in the states on the 2000 model year ZR-7 (Naked version). Officially, "Candy Lightning Blue". Very nice color! I, too, hope you get as much enjoyment from yours as I did from mine. Truly is a most excellent "all around" motorcycle! :alcy:

  12. ROTR8 - Stories/Observations/Pics

    ROTR (Ride On The Ridge)
    As much as I hate to admit it.... I think this was the last ROTR that I was able to attend. And I have determined that this is an unacceptable situation. I'm currently looking for work. I'm hoping to land something that doesn't obligate me during the May timeframe. As I would dearly love to...
  13. Any Honda CBR-650F Owners???

    Other Bikes
    Likes / Dislikes.... Things that I like about my CBR-650F are: The black fork tubes. The "Twin Spar" frame, although it is steel not aluminum. I love the rear swing arm! The mirrors are more than satisfactory. The LCD dash (with built in, always on clock) is very nice. A few things I dislike...
  14. Replacing the Boot for front left Turn signal on 03' ZR-7S

    ZR-7 Maintenance
    Triple LED Bar... Hey Obo.... That triple LED bar looks cool, where did you find it?? And you say it works as running and break lights? Cool! :agree:
  15. Tire life?

    Daily Ride
    It seems that I did. I knew I was due for a replacement just before the ROTR (Ride On The Ridge) that year. I "thought" it would be just fine. But, an extended weekend of playing in the mountains of western Virginia took its toll. I was pretty much "running scared" the entire ride home. Even...
  16. Replacing the Boot for front left Turn signal on 03' ZR-7S

    ZR-7 Maintenance
    Back in January I picked up a 2014 Honda CBR-650f.... Essentially, a modern ZR-7S. Relaxed ergos, in-line 4... But with fuel injection, full body work, 6-speed tranny, water cooled and LCD dash. Loving it thus far.... Take a look...
  17. Washing the bike today

    Daily Ride
    Incredible.... and SAD! I've been a member of this forum since 2002 when it was just a ZR-7 forum. One of the things that I LOVED about it was the helpful nature of the members. We all had, or at least had an interest in, a unique and under appreciated motorcycle. Almost every member acted...
  18. Tire life?

    Daily Ride
    BT-20/21 I had my 2002 ZR-7S for 13 years and put 59,800 miles on it. I always ran with the Bridgestone BT-20 or 21 tires. I replaced the Rear 7 times. Mileage ranged from a low of 6,700 miles to just over 10,000 miles -- although I think that is the one I took down to the cords...

  20. Lets Talk about Chicken Strips

    Off Topic/Fun
    A little late... I'm a bit tardy to this discussion... However, in answer to the original post... No, I don't judge other riders by their "chicken strips". Although, I do pay attention to my own. It has been said that tire profile has a fairly significant effect on this. I would tend to agree...
