    Just threw together some powerwheelies on the sE1, four in total, but with two you get the idea.

    Refresher: This is the California EVAP emissions model of the ZX-9R, the one reported by magazine reviewers to be 1 HP down on all other like ZX-9Rs. Except this one has 129,000 miles on it and averages over 62 MPG imp./52 MPG U.S. on the highway.

    With gear, I tip the scales at something like 215 lbs. Bike had half a tank of fuel, if any of that makes a difference.



    I asked her four times to powerwheelie. Each had enough authority I'm fairly convinced holding the throttle open would have flipped her on her back and me onto the road, thus my abrupt throttle chops. Roll-on power wheelies aren't my forte.

    Default More to come this year too.

    She's over 134,000 miles at this point. I can sometimes see how my harsh riding is taking a told on her, but to give you a glimpse of what we've been up to:

    Post ride bug splattered


    Riding and riding and riding.

    Default This may be some sort of sportbike record

    I'm fairly confident of that. Only way to tell is if someone can find or someone comes forth with something to the contrary. I've been a ZX-9R owner for 11 years and I've never seen or heard of another ZX-9R or other sportbike, for that matter, that even approaches the capabilities of my two SuperTrapped bikes.

    Conventional wisdom: A ZX-9R (899cc) Ninja sportbike normally needs refueling anywhere from 120 - 160 miles, putting it's theoretical tank range at around 200 miles. Wikipedia says at averaging 41 MPG, that would make it 205.

    My claim: The ZX-9R EVAP model produced to meet California's tougher emissions regulations, can do 240 per tank.

    My trick: My California EVAP model ZX-9Rs use SuperTrapp exhausts, thus, not stock and dissimilar to many other exhausts.

    Sounds nothing short of an epic ride!
    Mileage like that is great on the wallet too!

    Default 2020 marks the 12 year of my ZX-9R SuperTrapp partnership

    Thought I'd artsy up her 2020 season ending picture a little. Same bike. Same SuperTrapp. Swapped in a younger motor because I basically got it for free. The old motor's valve oil seals were leaking and replacing them would have been nearly as much work. The new motor was well cared for by the previous owner before it looks like he rear-ended a car or something that bent the front forks. She sounds and feels brand new again.

    Here she is on her maiden road trip taken in March of this year.


    The background to her Chapter II trip (it should be noted that without exception, all of the slower vehicles passed either moved to the side and waved me through or simply waved me through). I'm trying to find this road's rhythm, not even going that fast, lugging the bike in 6th gear for most of this.
