[quote=adaycj]I bought an 01 ZRX in 01.

I've ditched the obnoxious radiator brackets, painted the obnoxious bronze engine covers, and added an Ivan's kit. As a matter of personal preference I mounted a round headlamp and the 05 and later polished SS stock pipe.


Man, I like the ZRX with the round headlight (above)...

I am becoming a regular at zrxoa but just came across the zrx thread here. My touring experience leaves me awestruck in the shadows of others at ADVrider so I don't come around often.

I took this photo yesterday at the end of another test and tune session. While completing a valve adjustment and coolant flush I went ahead with the shortened muzzy megaphone and Ivan's stage 3 kit. Now I'm having the usual problems. As rich as these kits come I'm still popping badly on decel, and the megaphone is extremely loud. No more going for a quick trip down to the store without ear plugs, this pipe RIPS.

Sorry, that's not beer in the ale pale.

MC Fred, do you have any more pics of the Eddie Lawson replica bike. I'd like a better look at that seat.

My '99 ZRX1100 - Love it!

I haven't been around for a while since I sold my DL650 but I thought I would come back and hang out. Anyway, here is my current bike, a 1999 ZRX1100. I am getting ready to add a luggage rack and topcase for commuting and touring. I love this bike but would take a V-Strom again in a heartbeat.

Changes I have made:
Handle ber risers
Mirror extenders
Buell footpegs
Greg Couch fork brace
Sonic fork springs
Corbin seat
Frame sliders
Inline fuel filter & shut off valve
ChuckC carb screws
Ivan's Jet Kit with modified airbox
Yoshimura 1200 Can modified to fit ZRX1100 (I filled the bolt holes used for mounting to a 1200 then drilled and tapped new bolt holes that matched the 1100 flange. I also had to grind down the flange just a little.)

Just got a 2003 ZRX1200R, love it! Well, everything but the seat on a ride longer than 100 miles.

Hey man, I have been trying to figure out how to get a Yosh can on my '99, could you post some pics of the flange rework, even just the aftermath would be cool, please? Thanks

Have a question for the zrx riders.

I put the zrx headlight on my KZ in hope of seeing better at night. Bought a brighter bulb, but headlight beam is vague, to say the least. Have adjusted it every which we can, but no luck.

Any tips to light up my night time world?

Pic of my bike.

Ill ask this in all honesty, is it per chance upside down? Mine sure seems to have a great and evry usable beam, but on the lamp, I think it is a H4 and if so, available up to a 90-130watt lamp. BUT, on such an old bike, the problem might be keeping the battery charged if you put in a higher wattage lamp than the stock 55-60, brightest I'd go is a 80-100.

if you are already replacing a headlight, you probably aren't afraid of that 'lectricity stuff, so the next step would probably be to check the wiring. lots of instructions on the internet for wiring harness upgrades that use straight-shot from the battery, heavier conductors, and relays/fuses to get more power to the bulb (otherwise, it's just a low efficiency resistance heating system warming up nothing). here's an off the shelf version that should work with your kz--wait until he starts making them again, or put it together yourself: [http://zrxoa.org/forums/showthread.p...wiring+upgrade]

btw--the zx-6 on the left looks pissed. was the kz holding him up?
