HI GUYS,,
first of bike is p1 zx7r had the bike for 6yrs but only done around couple thousand miles regular maintanance brake pads ,,oil change,, new tires..all the fluids,,ect..ect...
the bike has been ok starting in all weathers ,,, The only fault i had is almost running out of fuel the odd occasion,,,Anyway getting to the prolem now after a couple of shakedowns the bike was running tip top then i start contemplating the zx7r 9r convert...
I put on full leathers.. boots and what not maybe 20 mins into the ride doing around 70 mls per hour suddenly the bike started to slighly splutter for about ten seconds..then before she cut out a big ball of smoke came out from between the gas tank pulled over onto hard shoulder and the bike was smoking for a while..press start button and it fired up so i got of motorway and check out bike oil level ok ..i take the small roads home and on the way the thermo housing burst and this grey steam blew out like the 12:00 oclock locomotive i moved the hose over the hole and filled her back up with water and got her home....there is more to this bt i would like some feed back on these symptoms first so any one else had these problems let me no and what the solutions are ..MANY THANKS....

I'm assuming this is tied into the other post on the other thread. Start tearing her down. First thing I'd do is take the valve cover off and check for your cam chain guides. There should be 2 right next to it and one on the underside of the valve cover that likes to deteriorate and fall off. If any of them are missing or parts of them are missing, check your oil pump screen.

I'm aware that the UK and the rest of the EU have a major theft problem. I don't understand it since I'm not in the criminal career business. Automatrics MTrack looks to be a really good peace of mind solution if you don't have a garage to keep your bike safe. Check them out on the YouTubes. Great videos. I wish we had their services and product here in the states.

GPS tracker won't ward any thieves away. Just less likely to keep their newly acquired product and your chances of recovery are significantly better. We look forward to seeing pics of your journey with getting her back on the road.

Oh man, they'd have a time to get my bike started. You have to conjure the black magic fuckery from Kawasaki to get my 7 started. It's wonderful. Also, don't those dumb F's know that the Se7en is niche? No one wants it. It's not a go fast bike like a 10r. It's a heavy, underpowered, fat pig and the only way to get any major performance gains out of it is to fit it with unobtanium kit race parts or a zx9r (b model) engine. Bunch of uneducated twats.
