    2001 Kawasaki ZRX1200R

    2001 Kawasaki ZRX1200R

    From NESR, back to NESR.

    I love riding this bike, but ... change happens.

    33,696 miles (might go up)

    MA title in my name in hand.

    $4400 with Ohlins
    or
    $3400 with original shocks.

    ^^ Pricing for NESR-members-in-good-standing. Extras included for easy sale -- stock parts, UNI Filter cleaner and oil kit, laminated spec sheets, some other things in boxes.

    Clayton really had it dialed in, runs so good and strong, always starts immediately, everything works as it should, even better,
    no leaks of any kind, sounds great.

    As advertised by the PO in 2020:
    Owned since 2004. Been down, so she’s not perfect cosmetically, but mechanically solid.
    Full Muzzy system, recently repacked. Ivan’s 3.0 jet kit, pods, battery up and out kit, GMD Computrack built RaceTech suspension 2k miles ago,
    braided front/rear/clutch lines, New EBC HH pads in front, Galfer Black in back. Recent steering head bearings.
    Freshly rebuilt calipers up front with all new seals. Comes with stock exhaust/airbox, stock front headlight/mini fairing, stock springs. New battery last year.
    This combination of jet kit, pods, and exhaust should make 132hp at the rear wheel. These are torquey engines that can be ridden at 3500rpm all day,
    but still pull hard up top. Freshly rebuilt carbs with all new gaskets/o-rings/needle valves.
    Issues: Not pretty. Been down a long time ago (16 years ago actually). Front fender was cracked but fixed with epoxy. Works fine.
    Steering lock on one side got bent. Little steel tab. I've ridden it as is without issue for 23k miles. Fix it, or leave it.

    What I've done 2021-2022:

    Tires (RS3)
    Battery -- "BIG CRANK" AGM (Made in USA!)
    NGK CR9EK
    Ohlins
    RM Stator Voltage Regulator
    Compton alternator chain tensioner fix
    Factory Pro extended mixture screws
    Rebuild clutch slave cylinder w OEM parts
    New front sprocket OEM
    Synch carbs w Morgan CarbTune
    Renthal Superbike handle bar
    Hella Twin SuperTone Horns wired with fused relay
    Oil and filter changed twice
    Unifilter pods cleaned and oiled twice
    LEDs in headlight, taillight, turnsignals
    Laminar Lip
    ... some other items and adjustments ...
    Garaged, battery tender, chain serviced often, STA-BIL 360 Marine, original tool kit, owners handbook, two keys, receipts, etc. ... all the usual ...

    It cleaned up pretty good. I don't mind the dinged tank or other minor cosmetic issues. I run a tank bag so I don't notice the scratches. And I like not worrying about a pretty bike.

    I've put 3500 miles on it, all-day comfortable for me. All good, ready to ride.

    In Arlington MA 02474, with easy access from MA Route 2 or Mass. Ave.

    Listing here first. If/when I go to CL and FB, I will remove the Ohlins to sell separately and go up on the price of the bike.

    I LITERALLY just bought a 1999 zx9r on Saturday.

    ZRXs were always an option.

    I’ve seen these on cycle trader for as much as 8 grand.

    I bet this is fun as hell.




    Clayton, you did the carbs yourself?

    The very definition of fun.

    And that's using only a tiny fraction of the power.

    Yes, minty examples are advertised at $6~8K depending on 1100 or 1200, mileage, updates, and upgrades.
