Guys, I am finally looking to pull the trigger on a used ZX14. My budget is a max of 7k but would prefer lower. From what I have found so far only the 06-07's are within my budget.
I have read that these are not the most desirable and that there was a recall for cracked frames. My understanding is that the 08's and up are better choices. This being said, I found this one but would like some advice.

Thanks
Wade

The recall was limited to a couple 07s that didn't have the motor mounts torqued correctly.
The dealer should have already verified the VIN and if the bike was included.
The only thing that changed in the 2008+ was some minor engine mods to clear up a low end power complaint but can be easily fixed by an ECU flash to open flies sooner or just remove them.
I sold my 07 with 15k miles for $7k a couple years ago. I was lucky that my neighbor appreciated such a well maintained clean bike.
I doubt I would get that on the retail market.
A 2006 should be way less than $5k. Even with side bags.
I've seen some in the $3k range
Can't really tell condition of tires and other things by the pics.
