Sad day
« on: May 15, 2019, 05:12:06 PM »
Well...., I have chopped in the Z.... It failed on me during a ride out - lost all revs and went from 7k revs to big fat 0. Nearly bcked me off whilst doing 70mph (or a bit more).

Diagnosis - ECU & Ignition failure. Not worth the repair so it has been chopped in for a Suzuki GSXS1000F.

I haven't been particular active here but I have learnt a lot and enjoyed the bike immensely (up until the last ride-out).

I'll pop in now and then as I do still like the bikes but my path has taken me down the Suzi route.

I wish you all safe travel and sunny side up  :830: :305:

Ride safe and enjoy your new bike.

I to am on my way away from the SX, but my reason was entirely self inflicted  :164:

Still trying to decide what bike to get instead but I hope you enjoy your Suzi!
