        Nice looking setup for sport-touring! Over the years, for major work, I have taken my Kawasakis to Kelly’s Kawasaki in Mesa.

          Great looking set up!

          Thanks for the pic
          I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

            Thanks for the responses, all. Much appreciated!

            On a related note, does anyone have a link to a video how-to on changing the oil on a zzr1200? It's my understanding that there's two drain plugs. I have located the rear most one with the oil filter, but the second one further forward is as yet eluding me.

            Thank you in advance for any & all assistance

                Thanks spedxprt. I found that one, too.

                Was hoping for maybe a video link from YouTube or something with more step-by-step type pics. I have looked in the locations indicated in crazybearchronicles pics, but am not 100% on the front one, yet.

                Thanks much!

                    Thank you much. This does help.

                    Does one need to actually take the side fairing off, or can you get at the plug with it on?

                      I don't recall having to take the fairing off.

                      However, it's been many years since I had my ZZR.

                      I'd say have a go at it with the fairing and determine from there.

                      Also, if you run into issues with any oil dripping on the inside of the fairings while changing it, I wrap the inside with some aluminum foil. That way the oil drips on it. then you just peel away the foil and throw it in the trash.

                        I remove the fairings when I change oil. Not that much work and seems to make the job easier. Plus the ability to eyeball the normally covered bits.

                          Thanks all. It's not my first time changing motorcycle oil, just my first with one that has two drain plugs

                            I did mine without taking fairings off, just undid the cross piece on the bottom, and loosened some side bits. But that was often just because I had no place like my own garage to do it
