ZX14 for (Xtra) tall riders...It's a winner!!!

@ the beginning I was hesitant whether this bike can be brought to a point that it'd fit my 6'9" frame (270-280lb) for longer riding. Well, long story, I only had to lower the pegs for 1,5" and...

The FD design that both BMW and Guzzi share, allows the rear wheel to move up and down instead of an arc that other FD designs do. Some parts maybe different, like you say, but these two differ for...

A couple of weeks ago I had the same dilemma. I liked the looks and specs of both the K1300s and ZX14. What finally steered me off the BMW wasn't its price tag (which used is significantly higher...

You "cruise" @120mph on the GS? With all due respect, that's nonsense when GS's top speed is around 130mph (last time I checked and had two of them a 2005 1200GS which I traded to a 2006 GSA). You...

How can the Z14 feel "cramped" for you? Are you guys serious (there's another one at 6'2" saying it's cramped). There's no way the Z14 doesn't fit a 6'1" guy (unless of course you weight 450lb). I'm...

More oil than max can do this

If he's used more oil than he should it is possible to get even a splatter of oil (that could reach the rear TB) from the crankcase breather. I suppose you saw it on the secondaries?
