Excellent Job! Love the look. Would love to see it in person at a show or something.

It's nice that you give all those plugs out when discussing your 14R project. The wheels look nice, who makes them and who donated them to your project? Someone had told me they were BST's that come from Brock's, is that correct?

Thanks.....Yes, BST wheels (fabulous addition) were sponsored right from the South African factory. As the North American distributor Brock was kind enough to send them thru on the factory authorization.

Having had her 15 minutes, this is how the HT looks today - sleeper.

Hi guys I hope you're well........Ran into a problem this am while out for a spirited ride on the HT, wondered if anyone else has ever encountered it.....Upon hard acceleration as I hit about 9K rpm in first or second gear, the motor shuts off just like I hit the kill switch, then once you recover from almost going over the handlebars, you grab some throttle and away you go. The TC is off and the Performance indicator is set to F, clutch is fine, fuel is full. Very weird, feels like either the ignition or FI is being interrupted momentarily at exactly the same rpm for a split second. 6700klms on the bike with no problems whatsoever.....if you've experienced this problem your thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Cliff

Found it......Power wire from my PC5 to the tail light was grounding out on the sub-frame rail as a result of a 'bad connection' on my part. Fixed and ready to get back out there!
Cheers,

funny, i almost bought a 14 like yours (cans, same bags) and my 12 is in much the same form. i'd essentially be the beer budget version of your stable.

Love Cliff's rendition of the 14. Work of art as always.

Thanks Fish.....Next project - a new 650 Ninja from Kawasaki for the girls. We're on it with the usual suspects, however this time Two Brothers have jumped in with a black carbon pipe, very cool.....Once completed, my wife Marti will get off her Fatboy and join the sportbike crowd.
Cheers,
Cliff

I havn't been on here in about a year, and I'll be damn if the ole ZX14HT thread ain't still on the front page!! Talk about thread longevity. Cliff made quite a stir with this one.....I still think it's bad ass, I'd hyper tour the hell out of it!!

Boring time of yr. can't ride the sleds or the bikes - thought I'd try something different on the 14, installed a set of Dunlop GPA 'DOT' race tires, Q3's were 2 seasons old, so time to go.....Haven't ridden it yet, however when I do I'll report back on my findings.......First thing I'll do (once the rubber is scrubbed and warm) is go to one of my favorite back roads, where the rear Q3 always spun up at high rpm right into 3rd gear - and try it out.....Biggest visual difference is the 60 series profile front and rear of the GPA's. Front of bike is slightly lower, rear is slightly higher then with the 70 series Q3 front and the 55 series Q3 rear. Might require minor suspension adjustments, not sure. That all said, I only ride it a 1000mi a year, so who gives a shit about longevity, it's about the look baby its the look!! Less tread then on the Q3's......FYI - like all tires, warm them up first.

Thought you guys might enjoy seeing a quick pic of my wife's finished 2013 650 Ninja project. Completely set-up for a 'safe riding women' (diametrically opposed to any of my bikes) she identified what she didn't like, 'ride by ride', and we fixed it. Lots of different stuff here, look closely.....Fun bike in the real world.
