Danny here in myrtle beach.
Just been thinking of getting a zx11.Curious as to what year if any they
were fuel injected.
Also the year for least amount of engine problems.
Thanks for any advice.
...none were injected.....I like to think the later ones would e a better choice to "ride". Simply by reason that they made them for so long the last years of production would be the better. On a collectable standpoint the early ones obviously....If you get one for the love of pete get a history of the bike. If it has had several owners stay away unless it is just stupid clean...
2001 ZX11 tourer with a hint of sport..SOLD
2000 ZX12R personal sport-touring rocket has returned...
I like the 93 year. First year of the "new" D style, dual ram air, and smoother, rounder lines. I also like to think that the 93 was a "Cadillac" year and Kawasaki paid a lil more attention to finish & detail with that year.
The color for that year was excellent as well, IMHO. I constantly get compliments on my bike. A lot of time from folks you never would have expected it from...
Ideally, if you buy a very clean, garaged, low mileage, stock ZX-11 (any year) you will be good. They are a very stable, well handling hyper-speed motorcycle. It is super comfortable for cross country rides and even by today's standards incredible acceleration.
I like the sitting position; you sit "in" the bike rather than on top of it.
I have both Corbin seats, to keep me securely on the bike, EBC Rotors w/HH pads to stop it when the rotors are hot (I have used two sets of HH pads), steel brake lines and the sticky Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tires (second set).
This ´98 D6 imported to Iceland 2005, no fails. Always heated up before runs 5-7 min depends on the outside heat, just keep the oil glass full and it will run forever. The roads here is bumpy as hell but the ride is smooth. Last winter it was -15 and +5 on from November to Mars and never any problems. I use it every day instead of my car. BIG +++ for the 4 greasing points in the rear suspension, brilliant idea.
