  • Block off plates ZZR1200

    I never have done this yet, but was going to give it a shot to clean up engine top area
    and to also get rid of the popping when throttling back. Only has gotten worse lately
    more annoying than entertaining these days. I have the block off plates install part
    ok, but was making sure on the plugging of hoses and other stuff so I don't miss
    anything. I want to get things tidy and bundled up while in there so I don't have to
    get in there again real soon. I know I've had it for 17 years but......

    I did mine years ago, using Ivan's block-off plates. It tidied things up under the tank, and stopped the popping on decel. It also made the bike 10 kg lighter so it went faster.

    Be sure to plug the bottom of the airbox. I used a common plug of sorts and glued it in. I guess plug anything where a hose came from.

      Cool. Thanks. Nice pic there. I see you did the coil stick mod as well.
      Make any difference? And which coils, ZX10's?

        Stick coils - Concours 1400.
        Bike starts and idles nicer, and I think that it responds better.

        I did the same on my ZRX1200.

          Which wiring harness did you use for the stick coil upgrade? I found several
          that should work but have no idea on how to wire them up.

            Charlie, I got my harness off a guy (Cory) on the ZRX forum (I have a ZRX1200, did the stick coil conversion on that as well).
