      Parked up for 6 months?
      Might be worth getting front and rear stands, and get them tyres off the ground.

      Cool bike

        Naarrrce!

        Love the ZX9's, one of Kawa's best looking bikes IMO.

          Have a look at this http://www.perthstreetbikes.com/forum/f61/zx9r-23373/

          Nice bike mate, I have a soft spot for them.

          btw you can fit the E fairings with a little effort too.

              Hopefully i will get it out on some more rides and stuff so tyres should be ok
              Got stands if it comes to it though

              Have been looking over that thread for awhile now Satan1 much inspiration to be had

                As much as i would like to get rid of the fender i can't be bothered dealing with the defects so instead i gave it some paint to get rid of the crappy 'been in the sun too long' plastic look.

                Unconventional art anyone?

                Hopefully a rear tyre hugger will be on order next week to

                  Great looking bike. Nothing sounds like a carby big bore kwaka.
                  Can you help with foster care?

                    Finally recieved my Geelong Carbon Craft hugger today
                    Had to file out one of the holes a smigen to make it line up properly but apart from that its sweet




                    Next week I'll be ordering a rear seat cowl, new exhaust bracket (without footpeg bracket) and swingarm spools from America. Mabye some other things but not sure yet.

                    The paint on the rims is pretty crap so they'll be getting taken off to the powdercoater soon. Was thinking of making them a pale gold, like the WRX's have, see what happens.

                      Very nice quite a well kept example!

                      Got to say, I have a massive soft spot for the 98-99 ZX9R's, very underrated bike IMO

                      I could see that working, and maybe the engine casings done as well to match?

                        If you do that (the rims that is), get Tim (BlackFZR) to make you some WRC Yellow stickers for the fairings and tank...

                            Gotta luv the 9!!!

                            Love my 95 (currently being resprayed gun metal) They all fade the rear fender/chainguard - [used bumpercoat on mine]
