That's totally correct re the angle of the bars as it was noted in BIKE, as they commented on the weird lateral flex it puts on your hands, likely to the ulna nerve as well

I would guess it’s synchronise the throttle bodies with vacuum gauges. It’s a bit time consuming fairing,tank and airbox removal. I’m now on 17500 miles and have never had it done. I will probably wait until it’s valve clearance time when it has to be stripped down anyway.

Now after seeing these pictures,  I am really pleased I bought a 2020 green one yesterday. I test rode the black and green and just didn't like the black tank, not a lot of metallic flake.

Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical / 2nd Year Service
« Last post by smithmas on Yesterday at 08:40:00 PM »
Hi Everyone,

My 2018 Z1000 SX is now due its 2nd year service and I have done about 7K miles on it. I contacted a Kawasaki dealer to book in and he mentioned that as part of this service Kawasaki recommend it's connected to some machine in order to ensure that the engine etc. is tuned and synchronised with each other (the name of the machine and what it does escapes me). It pushes the service price to over the £400 mark....

Question: Does anyone know what this machine is, what it does and is it worth it or do I decline that element?

Brian675.
A lot of people don't realise the importance of having the top of the hands inline with the lower arm to keep stress off the ligaments....
But I found on my 2015 the  clutch won't swivel down quite far enough.
Also the first thing I noticed when I got on mine was that the angle of the bars leave your wrists twisted left/ right slightly from a more natural position.
