    5th Gen Z1000/Ninja 1000
    Just picked up yesterday my 2019 Ninja 1000ABS. It was an unsold new bike that the dealer discounted down to $7,999 to get it off the books. I just happened to be looking for a deal when I found it and jumped on it. The sales guy told me that he had to tell 2 other guys the same day it was...

    Hi there ppl, I have a spare rear sprocket for a 2008 ninja 250, its serial is 11-192-43. Can I put this on a 2011 Ninja 1000? I have looked everywhere else to find answer. Is it strong enough and are the teeth and bolt holes the same? Thanks for any insight.

    Hello, I have been lurking here for a while, and I've found a lot of interesting information, but I've never posted anything. I bought a 2015 Ninja 1000 back on August, and promptly dropped it on its left side several weeks later. I had to buy a new set of saddle bags because apparently...
  6. Moscow rider here

    The Training Ground - New Riders!
    Despite the sanctions, i bought myself a new toy, Ninja1000ABS Red 2011. Our dealers sell them as Z1000SX, but the choice of color only black, gray and green. I really wanted to buy a white or red, so I had to look elsewhere. This summer, Red "Rice Rocket" came to me from Japan. Found your...

  8. Does Z1000 have same sprocket bolt pattern as Ninja 1000?

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    Does anyone know if the Ninja and Z1000 sprocket bolt patterns are the same. I have a 2011 Ninja and want to put a Vortex sprocket on it. From the research I have conducted, I believe the 2011 Z1000 has a 42 tooth sprocket and my Ninja 1000 has a 41 tooth sprocket. The sprocket I am looking at...

    Hey guys, I have been riding for a long time, my most recent being a Ninja 650R (2009).

    Those yoshimura fender eliminators are sure expensive.. does anyone have an accurate measurement of the base plate where the fender meets the tail and the measurements of the holes... I know some CAD maybe I can come up with something a little less expensive.

  15. 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...

    Stretching the legs of the N1K at SP Shenny circuit, I class. Had just loaded the new map from Ivan before leaving the house. Bike runs like a raped ape. Also took the quiet core out of the Akra for the day & may not put it back, sounds wicked but not too loud IMO. Tried to take past input...

  20. Colors

    3rd Gen Z1000/Z1000SX/Ninja 1000
    It might just be me, but I'm not really liking the lack of selection of colors for the new Ninja 1000. In fact, right now the only thing that's really keeping me from trading in my Ninja 650R to the Ninja 1000 is the fact that they don't have one in blue. Let's rectify that. Some new color...
