I’ve just dropped the ZXR off with the marvellous Spike at Cambridge motorcycles to get the carbs set up and shims checked, and generally make sure that it’s not going to blow up any time soon. As part of this, of course, I’ll get some dyno readouts. So, the great ZXR BHP sweepstake begins. How many horses will have escaped over the past 25 years? Kawasaki quoted something like 105bhp when they were new, which was probably measured at the crank. The rules for this sweepstake are simple. Whoever gets closest to the BHP at the wheel, before we make any changes to anything, wins. Entries so far:
|Jase Da Race||1|
|Handsome Johnny G||55|
|Big Uncle James||73|
|Bruce||78 with a big hole|
95bhp. At the wheel. Job done. Cheers Spike.
