  7. Can someone verify this for me?

    Mean Streak Maintenance
    With the Mean Streak forks off, springs out, drained, level and compressed, I should add 445ml of fork oil or until the oil is 120mm from the top of the stanchion. Does that sound correct?

    ZR-7 Maintenance
    Hello All, I'm a recent owner of a 2001 ZR-7s--purchased in Feb 2011 with 16,000 miles on it. I believe I'm the 3rd owner. So far, I'm pretty happy with the bike. It starts easily, has decent power, carburettes well, has a nice exhaust roar(even on stock mufflers), handles well at low speed and...
