I'm a potential owner of a Z900RS & would like some feedback regarding the following from any kind folks that are "in the know":
1/ Suspension quality for quick riding on bumpy B roads.
B roads are my sporting stomping ground & I'd be coming from a Morini Corsaro that handled the bumps pretty well (believe it or not!). Is the RS's suspension up to the job on standard settings, or if not, is it sufficiently adjustable to find a good setting?
2/ What's like as a two up bike for the rider & passenger? Is the seat long enough for a passenger of medium build & about 5ft 5" tall? Again, is the suspension up to the job?
3/ Has anyone managed to adjust the rear shock preload with the shock in situ?
4/ How's the fuel consumption? I'm typically a long ride type, and use my bike over countryside A & B roads. I don't often head north of 6500 rpm on a big bike, except on occasional quick overtakes. I'm mostly a solo rider.
5/ I hear the rear light is poor? Are there any known fixes for this yet?
6/ Has anyone fitted a centre stand? Has it compromised ground clearance significantly?
Many thanks for your time. Cheers, Gary
