Well tit was sold, then I rode it to make sure it was all ready to go.. It wasn’t right. I eliminated a ton of vacuum issues tonight but it still has one small issue.
It *may* stall after getting off the throttle after being under load… Grr…
I put Zed my 1998 ZX11D up for sale in June. Other than advertise it on a few motorcycle forums I haven’t been very proactive about selling it.
In fact when I put it up for sale then, it wasn’t ready to ride. It was still in about 900 pieces in my barn.
Until today. The carb issues have been solved, and it’s runs better than it did for the last 10,000 miles that I rode it.
It’s put back together, and I took off that stupid looking (but effective) Givi windscreen. It now looks like you’d expect a ZX-11 to look:
The Givi Wingrack is still installed and I have e41 bags that can go with Zed for the right price. The Wingrack is removable, and that’s all that needs to happen to have a ‘stock’ ZX11D. That, and put on the crappy stock back seat on it.
– 1998 ZX-11 D model, with approx 25,000 miles.
– near new Michelin Pilot Roads front and rear.
– Bike has two powerlet power adapters installed, one in the dash one on the left side.
What’s wrong with it?
Mechanically? absolutely nothing. It’s ready to ride.
This bike was droped on the left side by the prior (first) owner. He replaced the plastic, but the left can was still all little rashed. I never replaced it because it didn’t bother me. Both could stand to be polished.
I tipped it over on the right side, breaking the single screw tab that holds the right turn signal on. I attempted to epoxy that and it lasted about 2,000 miles. The right turn signal is current held in with hi-tech- black duct-tape. The right fix is beyond my ability to save this panel, but you can get a new upper for around $120 on ebay from time to time.
Other than that, it’s nearly a 10 year old bike that has been ridden. It’s not a garage or park and polish bike. It was ridden, alot, when it was my primary bike. It has dings and scratches that you’d expect on a 10 year old bike.
Price: $3000 Firm, we can negotiate on some of the extras; Givi screen, seat, bags, etc. Looking at ebay that seems fair to a little low for a 98. It will go on eBay soon.
To see what this bike looks like in touring trim, see the prior post.
