57x.
The man, the myth, the real jerk
i kid i kid my bro good to see you I hope you are well.
I took the bike for a little rip today and overall, I wasnt impressed with the current tune. I havent yanked the plugs yet to verify, however; I feel I maybe running a tad rich or the fuel lines need some heat shielding as the bike has the infamous "difficult to start when hot" routine, which may be jetting, fuel line route/shielding,battery voltage at hot start, or typical ethanol bullshit.
It ran fine and pulled pretty good, that buzzzaw sound bringing me back in time, way back, to better days.
The headlights are wannabe LED and its causing some flickering in my electrical system from pulling too much juice.
The color is awful and the chrome makes me want to wish 1998 never happened.
Just this one ride was worth the price of admission for the bike, I acquired it after stalking it for 2 years all the way from Seabring to Miami until I captured it.
Im sure the fellow who released it to me was not the same fellow you released it to as I watched it switch hands multiple times while I cheated myself with Honda and Suzuki.
At any rate its good to hear from you friend
a pic from the beach
Good times
Long live the ZX7R

So after doing some minor tuning, The second shakedown proved to be much more enjoyable than the first.
Lets start with a vid
clearly, the ZX7R pulls hard with no hesitation and runs much cooler.
Secondly, here are some more pics,of my most enjoyable ride ever to date, as finally the roads are clear of people and certain oppressive entities.
At first, i wished I painted it kawi green, but the white on chrome is kinda crispy and it looks decent going down the road.
disclaimer; the person riding the bike in the vid is someone I know. He is clearly a maniac as he has no hands on the left controls and still seems to have complete control of a moto at speed.
crazy shit brah
