    I've had two ZX12's.
    Rear tyre wear can be a bit of a problem so can fuel consumption. You're license will be in serious danger as well.

    Absolutely bloody brilliant i'd have another tomorrow. They make the world go backwards and you will find yourself giggling like a child.

    Hi

    I had the ZX12R for five years from new in 2001, until I got my first GS. I bought the ZX after having a ZZR1100, and it was head and shoulders above the old bike. I has several problems with the headlight relay sticking on, and a broken wire to the cooling fan.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my time with it, and completed my longest single journey on it, the 780 miles (I think) from Andorra to home.

    ZX12r is a big heavy bike...loved my two. As stated above...world goes backwards !! Regulator wires apparently let oil along them and this burns out rectifier/regulator. Never happened on my two though. I found the ZX12R bars were a bit to far forward for my liking so fitted a straight bar conversion kit.

    I'll take my zrx in Lawson colours, please.

    Enjoy those two, happy days!

    If you ever need to replace the battery on a zx12 buy the best you can do you don't have to do it again - and fit a take-off so you can charge it easily. I think it was about 30 bolts/fasteners to get to it!

    Awesome bikes though - loved mine.
