    Posted: 25 Jul 2018 at 18:24
taking a screen shot

I'm toying with selling my ZX9R,  so just thought I'd test the water on here. 

It's a 2003 model, currently has 29900 miles on the clock (less than 2000 a year).

It's got Carbon Dymag wheels in perfect condition, Continental race attack tyres, front has done about 2000 miles,  rear about 300 miles. 

It's got Brembo supersport front discs(about £600 new), Accossato 19/20.radial master cylinder, Accossato clutch perch,  Accossato quick action throttle , Harris rearsets, Ohlins shock with remote preload.  

I had the forks serviced last summer(about 1000 miles ago) and had K-tech springs and seals fitted. 

It's got a double bubble screen, TWM quick release fuel cap,  talon sprockets (1 tooth smaller front, 2 teeth bigger rear), R&G crash protectors, R&G bar ends, R&G tank grips and a colour matched seat hump and SBS race sinter front pads. 

It's got titanium Akrapovic headers mated to a titanium Ladybird silencer and has an aluminium Ladybird exhaust hanger.  

Now, it's a 15 year old bike that's been used and enjoyed so it has a few stone chips and the odd little crack and blemish but nothing major, there's a small crack in the corner of the left headlight but it sailed through the mot and it's not getting any worse. 

 The subframe and swingarm paint is also bubbling up in a few areas (a common theme on these bikes) and I was going to strip them both off and get them powdercoated at Central Wheel at Coleshill, £75.00 is what they quoted me for both items and I've already purchased the new swingarm bearings to go in for when it does get done. 

The other bad part is that there is a small bracing arm on these bikes, that connects the bottom.of the radiator to the engine block.  When I got the bike last summer this was loose, I tried nipping up.the bolt and it sheared off...however, the radiator is solid as a rock so I've not worried about it, I was just going to drill it out when I got round to stripping off the subframe and swingarm for powdercoating. It doesn't affect the bike but I just wanted to be honest. 

But all in all, this is a really clean, well looked after bike that pulls like a train(It was set up on the dyno and put out 135bhp at the rear wheel, with the db killer in), so will be putting out around the 140 range with the db killer removed. 

Now obviously,  the price is going to be quite high for a 2003 ZX9R,  but it's the trick parts that bump it up a bit above what you would expect to pay, I'm not desperate to sell but if i can get near to what I want then it can go as I'm not using it very much to be honest . 

If I'd had the swingarm and subframe powdercoated and sorted the rad bracing arm bolt,  I'd be asking 4 grand but seeing as these still need to be done, I'd be prepared to let it go for around the £3800 mark.  

Sounds a lot but if I stripped the bike and sold all the parts I'd be getting a good chunk more than that back.  

 So, if you fancy owning, what I personally think is probably one of the best (if not THE best), trickest ZX9R's in the uk then here's your chance

I love a proper green Kwak (Not the horrible modern shades) and that is just lovely. I wish but not at the moment. I can't see there being a shortage of takers but maybe not on here, I'm sure you have joined a Kawasaki forum so I won't insult you with the suggestion. I also know you are probably just giving people on here first refusal.

Howdy Leg' . 
 Yeah, it's on the PB forum and I just thought I'd chuck.it up on here as well because it's easy and it wouldn't hurt, I'll get it up on a few more over the next couple of days and see what happens. 
 I'm not desperate to get rid to be honest, just have a hankering for a change so thought I'll see how the land lays. 😀

Cheers Ad, be a shame to get rid really but I'm not using it , il4's just dont really float my boat anymore, it's fast, handles great, stops great,  looks sweet, but it's just not a V-twin ☹....

Lovely bike buddy. I'm thinking of getting shot of my gen 2 tuono as I can't afford to get leaky rad fixed and I'm not having time to use it. Whoever gets that 9r will be having a great bike  👍

I thought the 2003 zx9r had a black frame?
 I had a 98c1 9r standard bike, couldn't handle very well

Maybe a standard 98c1 won't handle very well but my 2000 e1 with Ohlins, dymags and pfm's is one of the best handling bikes I have owned.

No, the last model 9's all had silver frames,  well all the ones I've ever seen have anyhow🤔.

I think there were quite a few changes from the first C models to the last F models, this one handles great to be honest , first ride out on it I went as fast down my favourite bit of road as I ever had on my Tuono and it's been tweaked further since then 😀

Cheers Mark,  yeah, not the lightest of bikes as standard but with the carbon Dymag's , titanium headers and silencer, it's lost a huge chunk of weight and doesnt take too much throwing about now😎

Ah no, that'll be a shame to get rid buddy, is the rad gonna be expensive to get sorted? ☹

Surely there will be a rad on ebay at a sensible price?

There are replacement rads on eBay that's not the problem lol. Problem is I can't afford to fix it at moment. Being a carer for my mum as some of you know, the money's lousy lol.  Had to spend a fortune on car this year so the bikes just sitting there doing nothing.  Not something I want to do but I've got to weigh things up. I wouldn't give up on bikes, get a 1200 bandit like I used to have back in 99 lol. We'll see what happens. Can't see me being on road this year though 😭

No you didn't sound dismissive at all my friend I'm sorry if my reply sounded offish it wasn't meant to at all. My fault for replying when I'm multitasking 😂.  I probably will keep her. Just miss not riding this year 😆. I wasn't having a go at anyone my friend. You've all been very supportive on here in past and I would never have a go at anyone. You're all family here and families stick together 👍.  I've seen a rad on fleabay first  £125 so it's doable. Not a genuine aprilia part but new and feedback positive. Legend buddy it's all good ok

All chilled, just wanted to clarify. It's so easy on forums to give the wrong impression. I spotted some used ones on ebay fro about £70 upwards but of course with rads you may be buying something little better than you have, it's difficult to know.

That's the trouble,these rads are so vulnerable if the bike gets dropped or crashed.

I had no luck finding a good used one when I needed it,but as you say there is probably one out there somewhere, it's just finding it


Sorry Adam, this isn't helping you is it? Smile
