We have all the answers. Most of them are probably right :008:
If you take a look around this forum, pretty much all your questions have already been answered.
Hi All,

I am new to this forum and new to a Z900RS, in fact it hasn't even been delivered yet! So this post is to help me prepare for its delivery.

What are your thoughts on crash protection? I appreciate that it all looks unsightly on a RS, but which looks the best out of the Evotech and R&G? These two manufactures seem to be the most common in the UK. I also accept the fact there are limitations with these devices and may be the term crash protectors is a little beyond there capabilities to prevent or even reduce damage.

I am a new rider and when my RS arrives it will be the largest bike I have owned to-date. Anything I can add to this bike to reduce risk will be money well spent. I have ordered Evotech crash protector bobbins/spindles for the the swing arm and the front forks, also the ones for the frame. If the majority of the responses say I have done wrong then I can always send them back. What does everyone think? Wrong or right choice? Also, I intend to use an Abba stand and front wheel lifter (when required. Is there any constraints and restrictions?

I have also ordered the radiator protector from Evotech. What are the thoughts of the forum members who have already purchased one, are they pleased with it and do they look good?

If any of you have any other recommendations which you have found to be a good introduction to the bike I am keen to hear your thoughts. I am not really fussed about upgrades that make the bike faster or make it sound noisier, happy with it being stock. More so just the lessons learnt from the long term owners.

Good Day, Just wanted to say hello and looking forward to meeting a lot you in the future. I am usually a Honda Guy but lately I have got 2 Kawasaki's a 1982 GPZ1100 and a 2018 Z900RS SE. I restore old Japanese bikes and I did a 1976 kz 900 which I wish I hasn't sold so I really liked looks of the z900rs so I had to have one. I haven't had it very long but so far I love it. I will have some questions about the bike that I will ask later once I ride it awhile, by looking some of the posts I can see  that there is some people that are very familiar  with the bike and will have all the answers. :152:
 Have a good one, Stan

Yes, try the throttle a bit before really taking off. With a 125 you have less need for a sensitive right wrist, but that's not the case on this bike. Enjoy!

It's not accurate to compare 2 bikes on the track unless the riders switch bikes.

While the ZRX has more low end grunt, the RS's engine spins faster and is quicker to 100mph and will not disappoint

Welcome aboard   :152:

At best, the throttle is VERY sensitive, so make sure to take it easy until you get the hang of it.

true, there are faster bikes but the track thing is very occasional and as you mention, i don't want a triumph or ktm but a 900rs (with some mods ofcourse  :007:)
