  • New , but to this forum . Long time ZZR bike owner / Builder

    Hello i'm Bryan also known as c10 on www.zrxoa.org , and www.hayabusa.org I retired my ZX11D many years ago that is built with many ZZR1200 parts . I specialize in ZX based engines of the old 10 to ZZR12 . Ran into a few members in Eureka a few weeks ago , and did some digging around to find them here . Great ride up 23 with them .
    No longer does a ZRX , ZZR live in my garage , but they still find their way to my lift table . Still have some parts in the attic . Wanted to say hello , and if anyone in Houston are feel free to ping me . I have shims , and parts ;) Here are a few pictures from past to present .

    c10 comes from classic C10 trucks , but i'm short @ 5' 1 " so its a lower case c :) WEll never mind on photos as photobucket is total garbage these days , and I even pay add free . Still adds , and page crashes trying to select photos to link .

            Hello Bryan.

            Thanks for the formal introduction to the site.

            Love what you did to your REX. That's a 2000 model correct?

            Did you do the fabrication/

            Really like what appears to be the aluminum cradle.

            What year is your Busa? Looks like a very well sorted bike for laying down the miles.

            At 5'1", did you have to lower it?

            So you're saying that trans in your Busa is ZZR based?

            Unfortunately, I was either in front of you or a bit behind you when you met up with some of the group.

            Definitely would have enjoyed railing with you


            Mike
            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.

              Ahhh, the Kawabusa! Had completely forgotten about that bike.

              You still have the Motus? The Kawabusa?

              A few of us were down at Barber for Vintage Days several years ago and took a tour of their factory.

                I greatly appreciate your research and execution of mods and updates for the bikes you owned.
                I bought a 95 GPZ because the Lawson Bike was not available.
                I'm happy that you are on this site.

                Welcome and please stay here.

                Sin's a good mans brother.

                  Mike the ZZR trans was for a ZZR based 1224 motor , Kawabusa is a long time favorite bike that a friend of mine owns . That motus was a low mile demo I almost bought . Wife asked me to wait a bit , and glad I did . What year were you guys at Barber ? My wife , and I rode up the year the Hurricane shut Sunday events down .

                        Don't remember for sure.

                        Had to be at least 5 years ago.

                          Ok Mike it was only two years ago for us .
                          spedexprt it crosses the country quickly.
                          Three iron butt's in a week last year . Two saddle sore 1000's and a bun burner 1500 in 36 hours.
                          I've added electronic cruise control, and dropped 89 pounds off the Hayabusa.

                            You should get out and ride more often
