Man this board is so dead..Question and Answer time

What can we do to revive the ZX14R boards?

Anyone want to chime in what have you done to your ZX-14R lately?

What in your opinion do you think Kawasaki can do to change the ZX14r? maybe add a Supercharger?

Lets revive this place

I'd actually like to see a complete redesign of the fairings to start... LoL

Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.

what's wrong with the fairings? they look pretty badass to me...

I just can't stand the dual color scheme stick to one color again, Green, Blue, Red, Silver, Black

I really liked my all candy plasma blue 14 but I don't think I would like an all green one.
The two tone green and black looks awesome.

They already made the motor bigger and it's a 200 mph bike out of the crate.
Adding a super charger would just screw things up.
Look how they screwed up the H2R

How would that screw things up? I'm just curious make something already fast ridiculously faster? I see people modding the ZX14R all the time with PC's, nitrous, Reflashing the ECU...

We got folks already trying to screw it up already except a supercharger option for the Zx14R would be under warranty win win wouldn't you think?

If they would have made the H2R with 300 hp available for the street then I think more people would have been interested.
What was the final number on hp for the H2 street version, 207? 197? There are litre bikes for less money and less weight that make that hp and there's no sc to worry about.
Add in a sc to a 14 and I doubt the extra money and hp will be anything to get excited about for the street version.
Insurance is already stupid expensive.
I just don't think most guys can even handle a 300 hp 14 on the street and then you need to get all those ponies to the ground to even use them.

I did an ECU flash by Schnitz racing and added a PCV.
My flash was only $75 and $10 shipping
I would like to see what performance gains there are with the other more expensive flashes like Guhl.
I just wanted a few features disabled from the factory and my flies open sooner.
