Madcap this is one of the most gorgeous ZRXs I ve seen :drool:
I really like the naked look
What kind of headers are these? It doesn't look like the colour became like that by riding the bike hard, where they designed like that?
That's the Muzzys Racing Titanium header. Titanium turns all kinds of purdy colors when it heats up. Nice and light too, about 8 or 9 pounds for the whole pipe (can too) The coloring makes it easy to track jetting changes because the headers start changing color as the air becomes colder and denser in winter and the bike starts running leaner/hotter. I may just be imagining that part though
I've had a bevy of bikes over the years, started with a TX500 Yamaha bought in a series of boxes from a PCS'ing coworker. To a Suzi GS850 which I didn't like, to a XJ750 Seca which I liked better. Upgraded to a CB1100F which I heavily modded, to a Gixxer 1100 that I modded more and still have. In between a smattering of SRX 6's that were modded and raced in sound of singles, numerous XL's and XRL's on which a 650 I still play on. I had a '94 Viffer that I really enjoyed, but got tired of pulling the fairings on each oil change and any type of maintenance. A pain in the neck to keep clean.
I was shopping for a hooligan style bike. Checked out the Buell's, Triumph Speed Triples, KTM's Duke, and the Duck's Monster. Year after year I kept coming back to the REX.
This year I finally bought a REX.
I love it.
I think it's motorcycle's version of the 5.0 Mustang. Fine as it is, and easy to personalize. Want a tourer, a drag bike, a corner carver? Whatever you want, it's a few wrench turns and a few dollars away.
I spent a four hundred mile day last weekend on the REX. Smiles the entire ride. I did that on my Gixxer a few years ago, and at the end of the day, I had a hard time peeling my feet off of the pegs at stop signs.
I thought I'd miss the handling of the Viffer.......I think the REX handles just as well, with superior brakes and a lot more torque.
Again, love the REX. I thas everything I was looking for in a bike, and the price ain't bad.
Funny thing, dealers in the area can't keep one on the floor. I picked up the last alloted REX from my local dealer. He'd have to special order any future purchases. Had a buddy who had to go three counties south to finally find one.
Eddy, I don't know you, but I think you're missing something here.
