AND, now that auto emergency braking and proximity warnings are going to be more and more common, peoples attention and driving awareness is only going to get WORSE.
It will be a handy feature for some though to hear your car say "Warning, you just ran over a motorcycle." Then they will at least stop.

I am also looking seriously at a Connie.Do or have any of you put say 75 or 80,000 or owned one with that kind of mileage?How reliable is this bike when we're talking about putting 100 to 150,000 miles on it.I'm finding it's nothing to see an FJR with those kind of miles on it with good reports for reliability.Anyone in the market for a Muscle cruiser(M109R Suzuki)

Trent, a few on the c 14 forum have done those sort of mileages with pretty much trouble free performance.

If the bike was maintained, no big deal How many C14's with 100,000 + miles

Theres a guy on there with the name of BDF who would consider 100k barely broken in. If he had a week off from work, fun meant riding from coast to coast in three days.

Hiya, I think rear drive unit gears from other models will work. I am still trying to figure out how to get the coupler off from the front. I believe the ring and pinions will fit. I think the 37/11 from a KZ1000 ST will go in. Then you need a speedo healer. Also ZX14 headers fit and have a larger primary tube size and can give you dual muffs. Then, the ZX14 TB's fit as well when you use the matching intake manifolds. Just think of using a PC3 USB. AANND, the ZX14 camshafts goin in as well. The problem is getting the Variable Cam drive to work and a lack of Nubbie for the intake cam position sensor. I am thinking to get one made. Ooh, there is also the option of a turbo.
Tnx

With the shaft drive.....gearing changes are all but impossible.

Also, the low end grunt has been programmed out of it. To get around it, easily, you remove the secondary butterflies and add a power commander.

If you don't go with a full exhaust, you wont get the gain, up top, but the bottom end comes alive. Its really all you want. Even in stock form, its plenty. Its what you get when you try to turn this high horsepower, quick revving zx14 motor into something for touring. You can only do so much, but in ways, its what's so charming about the bike and gives it personality. Still, very rideable in stock form. You just want 1400cc's to feel like it. If you ever get the chance to really let it do its thing, look out.
