Thanks for the add. I have been away from two wheels for 3 and a half years, moving city, buying another house, family stuff and being generally skint! I have had a couple of Kwaks, a 1996 ZX6r which I bought as a nut, bolt and bearing project and whilst doing that up I rode a 2004 ZX10r, that was a beast. Regrettably sold them when I moved. Got the ZX9r as a reintroduction to bikes, can't afford to get back to what I had but for 1795 pounds for a 22k C1, mint condition, I thought it was a bargain, they have good reviews and happy riders an I was pleasantly surprised with the power. It needs the clutch adjusting a tad and has a slight warm start problem but apart from that it is spot on! I'm gonna strip and refurb the carbs, hopefully that will sort it. Happy days!

Terry.

I've put your pictures into Thumb nails, just so the guys who view the forum on there phones don't use up too much data when big pictures are involved, just click on the Thumb nail picture and it will take you to the full sized one. :)

Please will forum members put their bike model letter, & 1 or 2 after their Profile Location. eg: Your Town & B1,2,3,4 C1,2 E1,2 F1,2
As all zx9's are all slightly different, and I get fed up having to ask which model & number, as year may not be accurate.

Cheers men.

And thanks Ninjaneer, looks better like that. Your little tutorial is brilliant, I am going to do all that before the warm weather come \:D/

The front brakes have been converted to Nissin 4 pots, how can I tell what bike they are from so I can source pads?

Not sure what pads you need but I think the calipers are from a Gixxer, someone will be along to say which pads you need to look for. :)

There are two sets of pads that are the same dimensions and can be used for the Triumph calipers. FA145 & FA236. Get the FA236 because the bottom of the pad in curved so it just sweeps the braking area of the disc. The FA145 have a straight bottom edge which means the pad can sweep into the carrier catching the bobbins. SBS sintered are an excellent pad, had them on my last 3 bikes and if you get these in the FA236 you'll be sorted.
