Hey ya all,

Has anyone set up their ZX14R (2012+) for sport-touring duty? I'd like to see some of those ride set ups and see what I can put together for mine. yeah, shoulda bought a Connie for STin, but Wife and I love the 14R. so, I need some different ideas/visuals.

Thanks

Scot "Z"

The only one I recall is a member named trikebubble. He has/had an '08 that he traveled extensively on. Maybe he'll stumble along. Or you could send him a PM....

I was also thinking of the same idea making a zx14r as a touring bike. But I think it will be a quite uncomfortable due to its size.

I dunno, I ride a pretty big sport touring bike, Yamaha's FJR. 1300 cc, in-line 4 cyl. Not nearly the get-up-and-go of the ZX14 but does it does ok. To some it seems like a big, heavy pig particularly at slow speeds but it does fine for me. I bought it new in Jan '08 and clicked 79,000 miles 2 weekends ago. Since the pic below I've added a trunk behind the rear seat and a tour pack on the passenger seat.
