Hey guys and gals, I am looking at a used ZRX 1200 any thing I should look out for? The bike has 17000 miles and its all stock except [email protected] air pods and a muzzy exhaust. I just wondered how reliable these bikes are, and if they have any issues that might make you walk away. The bike looks clean, minor scratches on fairing and clutch cover from a low speed crash is the only damage I saw when i looked at it.
Did they ever make this bike with a six speed?

thanks,

Kirk

They are very reliable bikes, easy to find parts for. there aretons of mods you can do to these. you can put a six speed trans out of a zx11 in it,its a popular mod. here is a good forum for the zrx's.

2001 12,000 grin filled miles. Does it all for me. Goes,turns and
stops. 5 speed works as this bike will have 100ftlb @ 4000 rpm.
It's done around 8,000 rpm. Bike has big balls down low.

I have a 2000 ZRX1100....for $3k is a fantastic motorcycle. You might want to have it checked out as a member of www.zrxoa.com had a slow speed wreck and tweaked the frame beyond repair.

Mine has been trouble free for 14 000miles....other than tires.

02 ZRX1200R here all stock. Owned around 3yrs. Has over 50,000 miles runs and drives flawessly. Ridden everyday in the summer, great transportation and fuel mileage. Other than tires and brakes every year I love the way it rides, especially after owning many rice rockets. I ride this bitch hard, It's never let me down!

I had a ZRX1200 for a few years and loved it. Of all the bikes I've owned it's the only one I regretted selling. Mine had the Muzzy pipe, Muzzy block off plates on the exhaust air and Ivans jet kit. Ran 10.60s all day long. You will love it!
