Third engine

I have a 2007 Zx14 that I bought brand new. On start up the bike sounds like someone put all their loose bolts in my crankcase since day one. I had to replace the motor at just around 10 miles. Now that replacement has thrown a rod threw my case again. Iím not putting a third engine in this piece of crap. Iíd suggest yíall get what you can for these pieces of shit while you can. Iíll never buy Kawasaki again!

You had the exception. I had a 2006 ZX14 that had 85K miles. It ran like it was new. Sorry you're having so much trouble.

10 miles? Did you or Kawasaki replace the motor? All brand new I assume
How many miles on it now after 12 years?
Any mods?
Ever lay the bike down?

How much for the bike with a blown engine?

Guess he just wanted to cry over his bad luck and was unsuccessful in finding kindred spirits.

I find that hard to believe that the motor was replaced at 10 miles. That problem would have been picked up by the dealer before it was sold. There are many people that drag race the zx-14. They beat the shit out of these bikes and they still keep running. Most of them anyway. Abusing a motor like this will cause problems sooner or later. Some people don't seem to understand this.

I have a perfectly-running '07 engine that would drop right in. All I have to do is clean it up and finish the crate. Or he could sell me his bike with the trashed engine and I wouldn't have to drain the oil which only has 500 miles of use.

You know what i own a 1984 zx900 and i have replaced my engine 4 times and it has thrown the no.3 rod through the cases on all of them this must be a kawasaki issue which has been going on since the first ninja sounds like a class action suite waiting to happen.
