The Official October ROTM Entry Thread!! <- WIN A $50 CG GIFT CARD!

This is the Official ROTM Entry Thread

** The contest format will be an 11 month ROTM contest. Each monthly winner from January to November will be entered into a final poll in December for everyone to choose their favorite bike for the RIDE OF THE YEAR (ROTY). **

The winner of the ROTY will win a $50 CYCLE GEAR GIFT CARD!!!


-All bikes entered must belong to a ZXFORUMS.com registered member.

-All competitors must have at least 50 posts to enter the competition. We want to ensure prizes and glory go to real members of our forum.

-You must post a picture/pictures that everyone can see. No links!

-We would like to have some info on the bike, including year, model, mods, maybe a little story about the you and the bike.

-If the bike has won a Ride of the Month contest during the current ROTY campaign then you cannot enter that bike again. If you've got a new bike done differently...alright, I'll allow it.

-The entry must be a Kawasaki.


Once the deadline has passed, I will copy the entrant's posts to the voting thread to make voting easier. Also they will be added to the ROTY Voting Thread.
[B]

As always, the voting will be done in a separate thread found HERE

GET YOUR BIKES IN - ENTER NOW

My '99 P4 ZX-7R, for your delectation:

Ok - it may be mostly standard but it has some useful mods:

Fabbri double bubble screen
45t rear Talon sprocket
Home made chain guard
SRAD 600 4 pot brakes (a bit fierce - I now need new discs)
Kit MCCT courtesy of CCMHUNT (cheers)
All Balls fork kits - air gap reduced by 10mm using Shell Advance 5W oil (compression and rebound reduced by 2 clicks otherwise it jacks down)
Front ride height increased by 4mm
Rear ride height increased by 12mm
Front sag 25mm
Rear sag 10mm
Home made 4 degree advancer to compensate for the 4-1 caused flat spot
Stainless 4-1 (unknown brand but very very light)
Float bowl mod + Kleen removed
Reed ports welded in cam cover, tubes tapped and plugged with m8 grub screws
Cam cover painted black - to hide the welding discolouration, oops.
I have also wired a low beam relay in for the upcoming HIDs (uk models don't have one fitted as standard) + the reflectors have been cut to accept H4 bulbs.
Aluminium rubbing strips on the can (because I keep scraping it getting it in and out of my tiny shed)

It was bought for me by my wife (she got a very good deal) for my 50th.

The (very expensive) alarm has been removed and hit with a very big hammer, then stomped to bits (it caused intermittent starting problems)
Clutch switch bypassed
Side stand switch bypassed
Grab rails polished
Netting pillion pad cover - to cover up holes made by a cat that has adopted it for some strange reason - see below
In the last 8000 miles it has got through 3 front & 2 rear tyres, & I have enjoyed every second of ownership (apart from the alarm - see above).....







By the way, animal lovers, I did not stick the insulating tape to the cat....anything that drops on the floor she either rolls in or eats....which was fun when I had a Nitron Shock stripped recently...it took me ages to find all the shims as they got stuck to her. Even now I'm not sure I found all of them, *^%#ing cat (I love it really), which is why that shock is not fitted.

I would like to enter one of my bikes into the ROTM contest!

1993 Kawasaki Ninja ZX7 L1

Fresh paint job on upper, lowers, fender by Artistimo Custom Designs! Outstanding job!!- OEM decals for the Kawasaki on the lowers but the blue squiggles have been painted on now which is better since Kawi originally used decals and they would always crack and discolor due to the heat from the exhaust. Lowers have been cleared over the decals as well to protect them. Upper has the black and the blue decals painted on now which looks awesome.

New Continental tires F&R
Fresh powder coating on the wheels with new bearings, new hub bearings as well (All Balls)
New cush drive for rear wheel
New Pro-Tek swing arm spools
New wave guide style rotors F&R
New SBS brake pads F&R
Galfer SS braided brake lines F&R and hydraulic clutch line also
New Vortex rear 46T 520 sprocket
New Vortex front 16T 520 sprocket
New DID 520 gold chain
Full Muzzy exhaust with new copper exhaust gaskets
Factory Pro jet kit
K&N air filter
Headlight bracket, gauge mount, upper fairing mirror stay & various mounting brackets have fresh gloss black powder coating
New front led turn signals
New windscreen & mounting hardware
New Emgo mirrors
New bar ends
New brake & clutch levers
New grips
New carbon fiber triple tree cover
USB plug for charging phone
