How's that for an attention grabbing subject?
I just sold my apartment to move in with my girlfriend and made some profit off my home. That combined with some savings means I can finally do it... Thanks to the help I received on the boards, with the profit, I'm buying a 2018 Z1000R.
I say probably because it depends on one thing and one thing alone... The parking spot. Her apartment does not have a dedicated indoor garage. Only a corridor of storage sheds underneath. To get inside, there's one very narrow door. 800mm to be precise...
I managed to get my Ducati Monster in through that door. That bike measures at 750mm at the widest point (bars).
I have read that the stock width on the Gen 4's is 790mm. I fear that will not work, given the angle of entry.
Now onto my actual questions...
It would be a huge, huge help to me if you guys could tell me:
- Is it in fact 790mm? Is that the tips of the steering weights?
- What bar-end mirrors you have, and on what bars.
- Crucially, I would really like to know what the overall width is on your custom setup, if you have one.
I managed to find the last brand new 2018 Z1KR in the country... And now it I can't believe a narrow door frame is what is standing in my way... Literally.
Thank you so much.
