Kawasaki Z900SE Gymkhana Test

After getting used to the Z900, we finally started testing and setting up the gymkhana in earnest.

First of all, Ramkhana took a video of the test in almost normal condition, the video of the gymkhana driving for the first time, and the final video of setting up the normal suspension, but it was the first time in my long gymkhana life. It’s the first time I’ve had a ride taken, so it will be a good memory.

My impression at this stage is that the machine is very easy to ride.
The problem is the lack of front suspension power due to the lack of dampers “The final is not optimized”
tank is in the way. .
I thought that improving this area was the first setup.

Second day of test runs

After nearly two weeks, it was a test run that included problems with the front suspension and the final.

By increasing the front damping, we were able to lower the rear vehicle height, giving us a sense of stability.
We were able to optimize the finals a little bit, so we were able to gain a certain amount of acceleration.
At the same time, we are also rewriting the ECU, so we will continue to improve the performance of the ECU and optimize the final.

Even at this stage, we cannot deny the lack of front damping and the lack of engine power, so we will continue to work on this.
At first, I was worried about the grounding problem, but so far I haven’t had any problems with grounding, so I’m going to keep running like this for a while.

After the consecutive holidays in October, we will be able to proceed with the setup further, so I think we can show even more evolved driving.

So far, my impression is that the frame and engine are very well made, so even if the suspension is not perfect, the tires do not slip significantly and the convergence after slipping is quick. . The engine is also very easy to handle, and it seems that the potential can be further increased with future setup.
The first goal is to get the potential of the ZRX1200 level, so I think we can achieve that in the not too distant future. That’s my impression.

    Bonjour, Bravo 👏 ce que vous arriver à faire avec cette Z900 SE, presque incroyable si ont le vois pas!…que mettez vous comme liquide de frein arrière pour qu’il chauffe pas et perd de pression? J’ai aussi une Z900 SE de 2023 et quand je fait quelques exercices d´environ 60 minutes avec une pose de 15 minutes après les premiers 30 minutes, mon frein arrière n’est plus existant après 45 minutes…
    Merci pour une réponse de pro! pour un amateur et débutant à 70 ans 🙈

    Bonjour Jean,

    Merci pour votre question.

    Je m’entraînais d’abord sur la façon de rouler sans trop utiliser les freins arrière.
    Il ne m’arrive jamais que le frein arrière perde de la pression.
    Ce que j’utilise, c’est du Motul RBF700 ou une marque japonaise appelée Wakos SP-4.

    Bonne chance dans ta circonscription, mon ami.
