Readers Rides – Andy’s Kawasaki Z900RS

Readers Rides - Andy's Kawasaki Z900rsIn the first or our new feature Readers Rides we have Andys’ Z900RS. Here’s some info from Andy: I’ve own my Z900RS for 18 months now and its a keeper so time to add a few upgrades. I’m a huge Kawasaki fan having with a Z1B, GPZ750 and 900 in the garage already.Readers Rides - Andy's Kawasaki Z900rs

I was attracted by the classic lines and parked side by side the Z1B and RS share many styling cues. However, as you’d expect, they ride very differently the RS being a very modern motorcycle, it works pretty well in standard form but like a lot of modern bikes suffers a little from “jerky throttle” an ecu flash and dyno tune smooth’s things out and adds a little mid range.

Readers Rides - Andy's Kawasaki Z900rsThe suspension is pretty good but when pushed can get a little out of shape especially over bumpy undulating British roads. I opted for Ktech Revised fork piston/valve kit along with re-spring & Razor R shock all sprung to my weight.

I’m a below knee amputee right leg and while I can use the rear brake the addition of a Thumb brake gives me a finer control. This unit is a Racetorx and retains the rear brake pedal.Readers Rides - Andy's Kawasaki Z900rs
