Good choice - quick and comfy and a doddle to ride (as long as you have good tyres on it...). Just got home from a couple of days away on mine - it's a great bike to ride, nice and smooth and loads of wallop when you want to overtake a line of cars swiftly and safely. Nice and forgiving in the corners too.

Z1000SX hasn't got a knock-sensor, so higher octane fuel won't generate any more power as the ignition map won't change (opposite to a car which will advance the ignition then listen for knock and retard the ignition a touch when it detects knock).
I only use it in 2 circumstances:
- in Alps when at high altitude as my Honda started to knock quite a bit at 8-9,000feet up and pulling away at low revs in higher gears
- just before hibernation for the winter I fill it with Shell VPower as it's supposed to be highest quality fuel, so I figure it should be the best stuff to leave in the tank over the winter.

Just checked coolant and its just below min.No leaks at all so want to top it up.Ive heard people say use oem antifreeze any suggestions .Castrol,Putoline ??? Thanks in advance
Mine was at minimum level and I asked my Kawasaki dealer. They sold me a litre bottle of "Silkolene Pro Cool advanced all season non-toxic engine coolant" and said that's what they use. It's pre-mixed so I just put it straight into the water expansion tank and it took about 250ml to get to the max line. It cost me £7.11.
