    yea its looks pretty good from the pics ...... not running though

    This bike has been sitting in a shed for some time approx. 3 yrs.' or so and doesn't start.
    I don't know what is wrong with the bike as im not mechanically minded.


    Ive just been communicating with the seller and she commented on how she used to enjoy riding it ..... so I guess its just been pushed into the shed and left ... hopefully

    Yea if theres nothing seriously wrong it should make a profit ..... after I give it plenty of test runs that is ..... interesting to compare performance to the Fizzer.

    Finally seen the light, this is not the dark side, this is the beginning of a great adventure.

    Ill be picking up the bike on Saturday hopefully so can take a closer look then.
    There appears to be a 'label' on it but whether its just the reflection in the pic or its just come off , who knows.

    doesn't look like a cheap ebay exhaust, bike looks like it will come up real nice with a proper wash and polish, hopefully its something really easy to fix and for 500 bucks you could have a clean zxr.

    Definately mate ..... it was last registered in 2009 so Id say its more than likely just gummed up carbys
    The seller has told me she also has a 2013 Ninja for sale (that was only bought last month) so it looks like shes just getting out of bikes completely
    Maybe the ZXR was just parked up when she upgraded ...... at least its been shedded but we shall see when we dig in under the covers.
    But yes a bit of spit and polish and the usual maintenance items it should be a winner :thumb_ups:

    mate, seen worse, WD 40 the tank lock a few times then leave overnight, don't push too hard with the stock key as it will bend, might have to paint the frame

    Keep the WD in there, turn 90 degrees and pull up gently, hopefully it releases

    Hey Grey
    Looks OK to me, few issues but as Chris said, seen worse. I know pipemasters, have visited there shop several times. Friend of mine had pipes made for his BMW and they were spot on. My mechanic has used them when a new exhaust was required, excellent feed back.
    Does the engine go or have you just returned? They are a good bike, just ask Chris. Sure we will hear more about this bad boy. Keep us posted as per usual.:thumb_ups:
