This site times you out after about 10 minutes.

It also destroys anything you've typed in that time, so you cannot recover it.

Please update the autologoff time-out please.

Re: Forum upgrade from phpBB 3.1.1 to 3.1.3, latest version.

Not really a fan of the new format or should I say theme. Not terribly into tradition, but the new them seems more suited for a 640 x 480 13" monochrome monitor than any widescreen display on the market today. Without zooming in using the browser, it appears that 1/3 of the screen is empty gray bars...

SuperTrapp sound using 2 GoPro Hero III whites & one 5MP Hero

Session IV 13:40m. I tried to stay wide or off the inside race line to allow faster riders through, which is why you'll see others on different lines. Keep in mind too, my primary goal was to have fun, learn a little, but never put my precious baby in jeopardy. At around 4:30 into this video the tir...

Re: SuperTrapp universal fit aluminum exhaust muffler sound

Made this brief video while testing out the 60 fps capability of my Hero3. I've heard others say they can hear me coming from long distances. Now I understand what they mean. When the bike is in view, it is lugging along in either in 5th or 6th gear. 1 1/2 minutes long. https://youtu.be/7m3TO5Mj65I ...

Re: ZX-9R F1 (2002) - reviews - Power, comfort, range

2002 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-9R* ** This is my second attempt due to my first thread about the 2002/2003 ZX-9R being mysteriously removed. Don't know why. ??? My review of my 2002 ZX-9R F1 would be nearly identical to the previous review of my ZX-9R E1, with a few minor exceptions. Both bikes look simila...

Re: mileage questions for all (esp. wrider)

You say the bike is old. What about how well it has been maintained and has power fallen off too? I'd perform a compression check and check spark plug color. It may be tuned rich and just wasting gas. Both my wicked ZX-9Rs are maintained, tuned with the exact same carb and airflow setups and get nea...

Re: Let's see a picture of your Kawi

The best motorcycle I've ever owned has been this 2000 ZX-9r. Here she is as she looked after I picked her up. She was a basket case then, crashed, unaccustomed to high altitudes, pinged, hesitated, and just ran poorly (2008). http://www.zxforums.com/gallery/data/539/medium/ori_right_w.jpg And as sh...

#5 Rode bike before and after the exhaust installation. The experience I had with my exhaust came from back in 1984, when a friend bought my bike and upgraded the stock exhaust. He asked me to red-line it going up the hwy by our place. What a memory! I've had that same exhaust on two more bikes, in...

This would be a good post on a magazine forum. One of my main considerations last Aug (2008) was MPG. I like a fun bike, but it looses it's appeal if it strands or limits my riding due to poor range. I want a bike I can ride hard and the MPG goes down to 42 rather than going down to 30. The mags lis...
