  • Newby from Florida

    Hi all, I'm new here. Have a 2005 zzr1200 with a few mods.
    I'd love to learn more about it, and restore it to its former glory.

    Welcome Chief, congratulations on owning the most powerful factory stock carbureted motorcycle ever produced! No matter how fast modern bikes get, you can feel comfort in knowing that the ZZR1200 will never be considered "slow".
    This forum has a lot of good guys who aren't stingy with their knowledge. Post up a particular concern or problem and get the project rolling! Oh, and pictures are always appreciated!

    Regards,
    M.R.

                It's a D&D 4-1. IT sounds great. I don't think that they make them for our bikes anymore. It looks like they mainly just do harley stuff now.

                    If one of those people could share with me the best way to remove my triple tree clamp, I'd much appreciate it.
                    the previous owner chiseled the ignition switch out, because he lost the key.
                    however he supplied me with a new set when i bought it.
                    Unfortunately i have to install it myself.
                    I was easily able to replace the seat lock and helmet lock.
                    I could see the bolts below the grips and the bolts holding the grips, but, beyond those, I'm lost.
                    what else do i need to remove.
                    i did a search on here, and there were a few posts with it taken apart, but none explaining how they got to that point.

                      I had to replace my key/switch assy. last year. You'll need a 12mm hex socket to get the center nut off, loosen the triple
                      bolts, comes right off. The OEM key/switch assy is held on with "threaded rivets" which the heads break off when assembled.
                      Then it just leaves a smooth top to prevent easy removal. When you install the new screws, use thread locker or they can
                      come loose. My key switch was fine, the electrical part had a short in it, delt me fits for a while.

                      but sometimes it just needs a mod"

                            Welcome to the site Tom. Once you get the bike all sorted out you will love it.

                            You have moto-psycho in Gainsville, and I am in the middle, Orlando. Could be the makings for a meet and ride.

                              I love it already despite the need for a little 'TLC'.
