Got me a green one.....

But not a Versys, besides black is the chosen color for the Versys! :-)

Found a new, left-over '09 ZX14. I've had a '07 & '08, they are great bikes.

Let the modding begin.

Turbo?

Japanese scientists have created a camera with such a fast shutter speed they now can photograph a woman with her mouth shut.

The ZZR1400 (Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 in North America) is a hyper sport motorcycle manufactured by Kawasaki and is currently their most powerful sport bike.[2] It was introduced at the Tokyo 2005 show[3] and released for the 2006 model year as a replacement for the ZX-12R. Its direct competitor in the hyper sport segment is the Suzuki Hayabusa.

The ZZR1400 is capable of accelerating from 060 mph in 2.5 seconds.[4] The top speed is electronically limited to 186 mph (299 km/h). This limit has been in effect on both Kawasaki and Suzuki sport motorcycles since 2001 when both companies realized that the speed war between them would only serve to bring about government regulation.[citation needed]

The motorcycle was featured in season 10 of Fifth Gear on October 30, 2006.

Motorcycle USA road tested the bike in its October 10, 2006, issue and posted the following stock results:

60 ft.: 1.713 sec.
330 ft.: 4.349 sec.
1/8 mile: 6.447 sec., achieving 117.39 mph
1/4 mile: 9.783 sec., achieving 147.04 mph

Hey Bicycle Bob.......

The turbo on my ZRX is enough for me, couldn't imagine having one on the 14.

I'm in the process of dropping the engine and pulling the head off for port work and a valve job. Nothing like tearing into a brand spanking new bike!! :-)
Both my boys 14's make 208hp with headwork and the normal bolt-ons.

Thanks healdem,

That's the parking side, here's the shop side.

I worked on this place quite a while so when I retired (5 years ago) I'd have a place to tinker with my projects.
