Not completely dead...

The Z1000 is my first bike and I still have it. I'm still enjoying it and I might actually do some mods to it this year. 38,000 miles on mine. Only about 8,000 of those were me though. On to a few pictures.



I love the way the tail looks. How it tapers down to a single point and the way the exhaust matches the same angle. I catch myself thinking of a bee's stinger.



Plazma Blue in the sun might be even cooler than Kawi Green.

Previous owner gutted the mufflers and I have matured into someone who doesn't need 135dB exhaust anymore. Searching for an ebay special on a 4-into-1 muzzy system. I might also pick up a stock muffler set up for my summer adventure. I would prefer to not have to wear ear plugs every time I fire the Z up.

nice bike monster

you should get an aftermarket exhaust, cans at least anyway, plenty of aftermarket pipes with baffles so not too loud. the massive weight saving is worth it alone. when i refitted the stock cans to my Z1000 i felt like i was riding everywhere leaning back lol could really feel the extra weight on the back

Totally agree. It does look great in the sun.

Yeah, I just noticed this morning (or last night) as well. Sucks man, I really like the pictures you took of it. Good luck on the insurance claims, police reports, and the whole process of either getting yours back, or buying a replacement.

Southwade - If you get a new Z1000, I'll let you park it in my garage. I'll take real good care of it. haha...

It's not too soon for jokes yet is it?

What about it is so difficult? It's not that much different than most other bikes.

Southwade, sorry to read about your bike being stolen. You think you'll get another Z ?

I contemplated getting the Streetfighter or the Speed Triple this time, but no, I'll be getting another Z1000. It's just perfect (for me).

Great balance, fun, comfortable, and cheaper.

Here's a couple of my former '04










I miss her pretty bad. I sold her to quiet my wife down when I brought home a Buell without "permission" (don't ask, yeah I'm prolly wipped but I do own 4 bikes and 3 boats so mebe not fully).

I put the Z and my ZRX up for sale at the same time but the Z sold first. They're both fairly similar but the Z is much more refined. I had an Ohlins shock and progressive spings on the Z and WOW.

Nice bikes guys keep the pics coming
