OK, here’s the dealio…
Zed, is a Black 1998 ZX11
It’s most recent configuration looked like:
It’s a 98 with approx 25k miles.
Valves were adusted at 20k and were all in spec. I’ve always used synthec oil and good gas.
What’s wrong with it now?
Zed was parked when I got the FJR last year. It had carb issues. I’d had them rebuilt but something still wasn’t right. I purchased a new set on ebay and they are mostly installed. She runs great, but… (it’s leaking gas between two of the carbs). If your mechanically minded, this is a $.50 cent 0-ring that needs to be replaced.
Zed is currently sporting Micky Pilot roads that have about 3/4 of their life left in them.
The bike has been down on the left side (former owner) who replaced all the plastic, but the left can is a little rashed, not enough though for me to have replaced it.
I dropped it in the driveway on the other side, the right side turn signal mounting tab is gone. That light is currently held in with a piece of black duct-tape.
It runs, and runs good.
Differences from this pic include:
It’s a little dirtier 🙂
I’m keeping the top box, but will leave the Givi Wing Rack (or remove it if you wish).
I can negotiate on the e421’s, these bags rock and at some point I’ll put them on the Feejer for their superior storage ability and eas of access to said stuff in them.
Goodies that go with it:
Stock screen, black-smoke speed screen (flip) and the Givi screen pictured.
There are a couple of powerlet power outlets that are installed as well, one in the dash, one behind the riders left leg.

I bought Zed with 2400 miles, and put a happy 22k on it. Side graded to the FJR becuase Zed is not comfortable at all for my wife.
It would make someone on a budget a very fine ride. I’ve done a couple of saddle sore rides with it. One bone stock and it’s actually pretty comfy, the other in touring trim, which affects its handling a bit when totally loaded down.
$3000 firm, as is.
It’s currently Not ready for the road, it’s top half is apart and mostly re-assembled from the carb issues. I can (and will) put it back together if that’s what someone wants, or give you the parts and show you where everything goes.
I’d probably do better parting it out but I don’t have time.
I can also deliver within 200 miles of Cincy Ohio, give or take.
