Hi all. Just trying to get some info about the Z1000's. I found one on craigslist I am goign to look at and was just wondering if there are any issues that seem to be common that I should look for?? I've owned a couple bikes the most recent being a shadow spirit so the naked/sports are a new version to me. I have some friends with "croth rockets" what might the Z1000 compare to?

Thanks for ANY info. I put a link to the bike on CL.

nothing compares to a z. ha!ha! closest thing to a standard bike that you will find. fz1, bandit 1200, b-king, are all japanese nakeds. there are sveral euro models also. but i don't say those words.:screwy::screwy::screwy:

The '03 is the year that had a recall on a frame weld at the steering head gussetts. I would check it out thoroughly, but other than that you should have no troubles. I have an '03 and have never had any issues with the frame welds, so don't let that scare you. I have almost 30k miles on my '03 Z1k.

He cut the exhaust. I like it!!!
now compared to the crotch rockets you have nothing to be jealous. you are going to be comfortable and fast enough to ride with them.
