  1. Z750 2006 gear jumps back after downshift

    General Z1000/Z750
    Hello guys! I recently bought a 2006 z750 with 70k kms on it, and it's a wonderful machine. But I found a very disturbing problem.

  3. Does your bike turn easy? (an unconventional alternative.) + write up on Comndr II

    General Ninja 650R
    Hello all, before I get in depth about this, I want to ask if there is a way to lessen how easy it is to turn the bike. I can turn the bike too easily with the new tires on it, which means sometimes I slightly over steer the bike. I have heard people say to raise the bars on the front strut...

    ZR-7 Accessories
    I bought THIS integrated light off of Ebay so I could finally finish my "all LED conversion" I was doing and get rid of the ugly stock turn signals in the process. It seemed to be well reviewed by previous purchasers on both amazon and Ebay so I dove. The running light and Brake light work...
