    Plus you don't have to worry about them sneaking ethanol into it like some stations do with their 91 :(

    I'll stick with 95 for now then.

    Just curious has anyone here used the tyga slip on on their zxr? did it negatively affect their engines performance or was it just plug and play, no problems?

    @kiffsta, my tingate racing pipe is literally straight thru and it needed some carb tuning. Needle shims and upped pilot screw setting. Possible float height change ( done by previous owner )

    Hey fellow riders!

    How is everyone? Have you all been making the most of the clearing weather to ride as much as possible? I have :D

    I was searching through this forum but didnt find a definitive answer. Does anyone know the fluid capacity of the radiator on the zxr? Also do I have to mix the coolant with distilled water 50/50 or can I use the premixed stuff? Im going to drain and replace the coolant and fill the overflow bottle.

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    Hey guys ive had a curious experience with my bike. I opened the tank last week and filled it full of fuel. However since then ive been unable to open the fuel tank again. Ive put WD40 on the key but i can only try turning the key so far before it bends? The lock turns and sounds like its unlocking but i cant actually open it. Anyone here had this experience?

    Try pushing down on the cap as you turn the key, might pay to get a spare key cut

    Get the WD40 with PTFE (Teflon) and spray heaps into the key barrel. Work the key back and forth until it opens. Works every time.

    I have been trying to open while pushing down on the cap. No good. Ill give the WD40 with teflon in it a try when i get my spare key on Tuesday. By spraying it directly down the barrel it wont get into/contaminate the fuel right?

    There's a seal there so no fuel contamination is possible.

    What you do is use the key to open the plastic slide and then spray the grease directly into the mechanism until it fills up. Then you work the key back and forth to move the grease around to where it needs to be.

    A few taps with a mallet may help free it up as well.
