So I picked up my Z over the weekend and I felt like a kid in a candy store. Its a used 07 but it feels new with only 2000 miles on it. The power is really smooth from bottom to top. I expected a hit in the mid range like the zx10 but didn't get it, not that it needs it. Very good engine! Gas it at 4000 and the front comes up. Smooth ride doesn't break your tail bone when you hit rough places and feels very good in the corners. Steering is very light and responsive. I expected a heavy and awkward bike coming off a supermoto but i think this thing is nearly as responsive as the moto. I road it 2 hours back home and felt good except my rear. Going to need more cushion. I hear Corbin takes care of that. Got 160 miles out of the first tank and gave it a few good WOT shifts through 4th. A little quiet with the Yoshimura pipes but as the packing wears out that will get better. I did some research and found the factory front sprocket is 16 tooth so I ordered a 15 and went to replace it, well I guess the fella before me already did this, so im exchanging the front for a 43 rear. I love this bike! The up right riding position is awesome! Gotta get used to the safety features. I fired it up to pull it in the shade earlier and when i put it in gear it dies. tired it a few times. So I though it was the power commander going bad. I unplugged all the injectors and same thing. Called my buddy at the Kawi shop and he said it may be the kickstand switch. Goofy me had the stand down. Im learning. Glad to be a part of the Z world fellas.
