20200604_151427_HDR.jpg Hi guys,
I just joined the forum. I bought a 2011 Z1000 with 12K mi. on it last year and I'm learning my way around it. My last bike was a ZRX and I belonged to ZRXOA.
My bike was bone stock except for a Corbin seat. So far I have changed the sprockets and chain and changed to a K&N filter. I went up one tooth in the front sprocket and down one in the rear..
I have noticed that the engine or tranny rattles in neutral with the clutch out. It goes away when I pull the clutch in..? Need for concern?
It also will die sometimes after I give it a quick rev.
What is recommended for plugs. NGK platinum or iridium? I know my ZRX didn't like anything but the regular copper plugs.

I believe the stock plugs are already NGK Iridium on the 3rd gen Z.

congrats and welcome! Got mine in 2011 (the fastest year) now with 55000 troublefree miles. And yes to the NGK iridium plugs, they last forever kinda. One plus from the older bikes is all the searchable info on this site. Really cool having all the mods pre vetted. Enjoy.....

Thanks! Any suggested mods?
All depends on what you want, your weight, and bankroll. Whats your priorities? Commuting, twisties, dragstrip, track use, comfort mods, 2-up riding, longer trips, etc.? Lots of members here will help you spend your money haha!

hi dapo,

have you looked online to purchase your replacement parts?

Thank you zee monkey for the revert.
I actually did and couldn't find it.
But with the link you sent I'm sure it will be helpful.
Much appreciated.
