  3. Tempted. I test rode one of these 2 weeks ago, and I thought it was crap. Compared to the VFR800, the Z1000 had no tourque, and bugger all power until you absolutely rang it's neck... and even then, it didn't feel like a thou should....

    Maybe I should test ride a different one this weekend and see if it's any different. Can you comment on what the power feels like to you? The one I rode, the seller seemed dodgy, so it may have been in poor condition.... dunno...
  4. Hi F.A.T.

    If you're comparing it to you VFR, then torque will be lower, particularly <6000rpm. Naturally your V4 config is designed for torque.

    The real beauty of the zthou is >6000 and again >9000. The power curve is huge and highly exillerating. I love the Z once I learned it's power bands but of course, I'm slowing down in my old age and am thinking of something more cruiser-like.

    I got pulled over a couple of weeks ago on Razorback and decided the Z is no fun unless it's being illegal :wink:
  5. i might consider a swap with cash adjustment but if your after a sale only then i must walk away.
    always wanted one of these things.. just gold
  6. No swapsies, thanks anyway [-X

    If you're talking about the ER6 - That's my wife's bike and I'll be using that for myself pending my own newbie.
  7. fair enough.. ill just have to go get a new one.. :p
  8. GONE
