    I bought my zx9r a few years ago to save using my mille in crap weather, ended up spending a load on it, they’re a seriously under rated road bike, coming back from Scotland last year I came off so I rebuilt it over the lockdown, I’d fitted dymag up7x’s and Pfm brakes before the accident and bought it with the Ohlins shock fitted.

    I had to fit a new frame as it got a hairline crack so while it was bare I stripped the frame and scotchbrited it, Mark toon at rcd built me a new swingarm with his quick release kit fitted and I’ve had a ktech kit fitted in the forks and shock serviced, the brakes are 6 pot pfm’s with 330mm iron disc’s, I found ti akrapovic headers and racefit made a carbon long can system for it, bsd refurbished the carbs and fitted a cordona pq8 qs which works lovely, I’ve got them fitted on my Mille and k7 as well.

    Thanks, I really do like these bikes, as said they’re seriously under rated, might not of been great track bikes but as a road bike are fantastic and you can get a curry and chips under the seat.

    Lovely bike, appreciate the pics man. Always wanted to try a 750 I4. One thing stands out on those calipers though; the banjo is at the bottom?!? Seems a very odd design. Where is the bleed nipple located?

    It’s directly at the top, it forces air when bleeding to rise where you want it.

    So you like the quick shifter?
    I have a cordona fitted to the blade but was a bit gutted when I found out it does pop all the time ;)

    Thanks for the pic mate! Makes much more sense now. Seriously want a set of those calipers in my life. Decided against the iron discs based on my (long) convo with the PFM guy (forget his name) but have an SS set waiting to fit back home.

    Also just realized I had in my head this was a 750 and not a 900 for some reason...

    I have 4 cordona pq8’s on various bikes, my zx9 is the only carved bike I have with one on, it hardly ever bangs on this but bsd did rebuild the carbs and set it all up on the dyno so maybe there’s not much un burnt fuel getting in the exhaust.
