Sweet! Nice to be able to work on the bikes in the living room, I'm sure. I have to go out to my storage unit for as long as I can stand the cold.

Hey Rook , it is the beginning of summer over hear , and most Aussies have their bikes in sheds or garages . I got a garage too , but for storage only nowadays .

Hey toad, after seeing your work in progress pic don't forget to add a radiator guard.
Thanks Yannih , I will look into it , but I got a mate of yours ( Rook )tutoring , or maybe even lecturing me on ZX14 weight loss .... hahahah , catalogued , itemized and all , down to the last oz. A very thorough job that wont be easy to duplicate , especially this early of my 14R ownership .

Yeah, I'd be taking Rook's advise over mine every day of the week when it comes to the 14.
The guy is so knowledgeable re these bikes he should be a consultant to Kawasaki.
Not to mention his "How to" posts and all the assistance he has provided to others here...

Thank you Yahnni mate. I'm just an enthusiastic novice. There's a world of stuff out there I don't know.

Hey Rook , it is the beginning of summer over hear , and most Aussies have their bikes in sheds or garages . I got a garage too , but for storage only nowadays .

That's what I'd do too. If I could get my bikes in my place I'd do it. LOL I'd have to build a ramp to make the stairs and then there's a tight corner...not to mention I already have barely enough room to turn myself around in that little place. It's cheap though! Good for now.

Thanks Yannih , I will look into it , but I got a mate of yours ( Rook )tutoring , or maybe even lecturing me on ZX14 weight loss ..

Been thinking about it over the weekend and I came up with another one: Oil Cooler Deletion. I have been meaning to do that. Turbo guys do it all the time. Remove oil cooler, plug radiator pipe to oil cooler, install block off plate to oil cooler mount. That oil cooler looks heavier than a billet block off plate + when you go turbo some day you all set and you have a place to fit an oil scavenge tube for your turbo. I will do that by early spring when not warms up. I'll have to drain the coolant and I'd rather not let it sit empty all winter.

Hahahah , Rook has helped me plenty of times already , with his post as well as real time as we can get on different time zones . There is plenty for me to learn on this bike , and for all of you who post up info with resulting outcomes , I thank you for this service .
Hey Rook bro , are you running NOS on your ZX14 , I thought I'd seen you mentioned something about it on the other site . Going to get the bike started up today , it is not a good weather day over here , but perfect for working outside in the cool .

I have had the NOS solenoid laying the tail. A line goes straight up the middle to the air box covers (under gas tank--two doors to get in the air box). I have an idea to hook up the bottles to my tail frame but will need to make some brackets. No switches installed yet so the NOS has never been used. Hope to tune for nitrous next summer.

The good part of it is that after all this time I have actually learned some basic stuff about how nitrous works before using it.

Rook, I'm sure you'll enjoy the nitrous on your bike. I had a 2000 ZX-12R that I bought new. I put a 50 horsepower shot of dry nitrous on it. I bought the whole kit, including all the wiring, 2 lbs. bottle, and instructions from a guy in Canada that drag raced a 12. $250 for everything. I never pushed the button until I shifted to 4th, about 140 mph. Any speed below that and I think I would've looped the bike. It's an instant extra 50 hp and it hit really hard and fast. A big thrill, at least for me. My license plate said NOSCU. (I still have the plate hanging in my shed).
Test it out at different speeds and don't hold the button in too long until you get it figured out and are comfortable. Even at 64 years old, I just LOVE acceleration!

Can't wait to try it, mokaw. Mine was also about $250 bought used from a fellow forum member. I bought a Daytona NC2 Progressive Controller to go with the setup and it looks like part of the purpose of that is to ramp up the nitrous delivery gradually rather than an instant 100% dose. Think that NC2 got thrown in the trash by accident before I ever installed it. I will have to pay $425 again to buy another.

Got the bike started , it is throwing a code , 67 , I am on to it though I 'think'. 2012-15 Aussie models run a sensor , US models don't I have been told , so need the eliminator plug . Probably going to take a few days to arrive , but the wheels get tired up tomorrow , and I fit them up asap .
50 hp NOS shot would be pretty wild I bet . I got a very good mate who is also 64 , he is still the best rider I know , and he is the first to run 8.7 out of any of the group of dudes I know on a stock motor Gen 2 Busa . He will have a run on my ZX14R sometime next year , because he lives 3000km away from me nowadays . I might even set this bike up so I can run it at the drags comfortably , I am sporting many old motorcycle injuries , with three due operations I'm stalling out , and gear change and feet up are a real problem .

This sounds like a problem another Aussie member had after flashing. I'm almost sure that was yannih. The whole trouble was that the US flasher was tuning for a US bike when he should have been tuning a Euro. Don't worry, that guy's not in business anymore.

Wow , Yannih , that was an ordeal you went through bro , I think I may have got lucky and dodged a bullet with my thing . I got that 67 code , and got an oxygen sensor eliminator plug delivered overnight , and as soon as I checked it the error code was gone . I gave the recommended reset after anyway , so no worries . I run the PC5 , with the pipe , and got the ECU flashed , so the eliminator was necessary , I am not going to run a auto tune . So the wheels are on today , and I'm about to start putting the bodywork back on . I have done some of Rooks weight loss deletes , but I will come back to more next fairing removal as I go . I got to fit that Brocks clutch mod , but I think I will leave that for awhile also . I will get the bike back together and post some pics . Thanks for your help Yannih and Rook , appreciate it a lot .

I have done some of Rooks weight loss deletes , but I will come back to more next fairing removal as I go .

I say that every time I take fairings off and there is usually something new to remove or replace with a lightweight item!
