Hello Timmy Rider
Very interesting topic , i'am also searching a shock to replace OEM and also find this Hyperpro attractive .
Like you , i would like to save money and keep the OEM preload adjuster .
I can not see on photos , did you keep all the preload ajuster system ?
How do they adapt the adjuster to the shock ?
Could you post a photo of the unboxing shock ?
thank you !!
Hi,
I sent the whole OEM shock to them and they fitted the pre-load to the new shock.
Sorry i don't have any more photos.
If you opt for the remote compression adjuster, be careful fitting it under the rear foot peg hanger. Mine broke and i had to source another. It needs a few carefully placed washers, unless they give you the spacers with the bracket.

Z1000SX - General Discussion / Re: Ninja H2 SX
« Last post by Jase on Today at 09:37:48 am »
I went from having had two Z1000SX's (2015 - 2020) to a H2SX SE+

Both are wonderful bikes and each can do what the other can do, albeit without the effortless surge for the 998cc supercharged engine. The 1043cc isn't short itself.

A friend and I went around the Picos this spring, him on his latest gen Ninja SX, and I on the H2. Both got around without any problem and both equally in comfort. As for fuel consumption, both were running around 56mpg, and that was with my playing a few times.

Each person is different and has different requirements / expectations. The best advice anyone can offer would be for you to go and test ride one yourself.

The H2 servicing is not too bad and comparable to the Z1000SX, well until the 30K point - that one is a stinger.

Tomorrow the bike is in for its 2nd year service, £400. Unfortunately there are no other dealers within 1 1/2 hours from here, so 5-ways can rob you.

It's a great bike to ride, but the allure and noise of the superchargers impeller for me was like mermaid song, drawings me in :008:
I couldn't help but keep it on song, meaning I was speeding and ultimately knew ownership would mean losing my license :006:

Thanks guys.

I think I was probably getting drawn in by the allure of the supercharger and striking looks at a not too ridiculous price. In practical terms my current bike has to be the better option, so I’ll try to put the idea to bed. 😕

Thanks again,

Andy

there is a write up in this month's ride mag

the z1000 sx does everyhting the HS SX does, the H2 SX does it with more a plomb  - is the verdict

i test rode one, and i just spent the whole day getting the super charger to chirp

there used to be online service menu but it's gone now - but i do know 15 0000 is nearly a grand 30 000 is nearly two

now i know youi may never get there but for me, that was the fact that turned me away that and a poor headlight

it was quick, lightweight, narrow, comfy for me, but the costs were just too great - not sure if it still applies but only certain dealers could service them so i'm not sure how that works in the secounhand market - then again it might be an urban myth

2nd hand i guess you'll get the briefest of test rides so it may not give you a true representaion of what its like

lighter than my zzr and just as fast - but the zzr was simple and cheaper to service

Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical / Re: Mapped
« Last post by Timmy_Biker on Yesterday at 07:34:26 pm »
Thats an 11 year old bike with 2k on the clock.
Stands to reason that at some point, and quite possibly on more than one occasion, it has been idle for months or even years.
I would say it needs re-comissioning.
First let me ask, has it any history of an air filter change or full service?
If so, what is the service history?

Hi all,just a quick question,I have a 2017,sx,all standard,except for a pair of Yoish.end cans,is it worthwhile having the ECU,flashed,will it make any difference,ie,smother on pick up,get rid of the first four gear restrictions,not interested in more power or noise,just a smother ride,any suggestions would be helpful.

flash do improve alittle and with decat it certainly do.not the bench flash the dyno with it will peak your bike to full potential
