well i just got this new bike and its a 2002 and i love it. my question is where can i find a book or tutorials on tune ups repairs and maintenance for this bike? i ahve absoluetly no idea how to work on bikes or cars even and would like to learn all this stuff for my specific model can anyone help me out where i could find this?

also its a used bike and dropped both sides :evil: but with minimal damage... the only thing damaged really was the kawasaki decal or logo on the tank of the bike... i was wondering where i could find a new one of these, i checked the accessories for the eliminator on the kawasaki website and there wasnt any... anyone have some ideas?

also any links to more webpages with info would be very helpful too. thanks for all your help guys!

edit: also a website or book or tutorial on winter bike preparation would be great too!

edit2: even down to the smallest things like oil changes, changing spark plugs, chain tension i have no idea how to do any of this so all ur help will be greatly appreciated

These are the first web sites that come to mind:
http://www.denniskirk.com
http://www.bikebandit.com
http://www.ronayers.com
http://www.parts411.com
You can buy Haynes or Clymer manuals, or you can get the Kawasaki manual from your dealer or Beartooth or http://www.buykawasaki.com . The manuals will tell you everything you want to know. If you order from Kawasaki, you can buy an owner's manual, too.

For decals, try http://www.ebay.com .

Now I have a question for you. How much acceleration does that thing have? Do you have any guess about top speed?

thanks so much for everything man u are awesome. and to answer ur question the bike is pretty gutless, the speedometer reads max 120kmph, but the guy says it prolly tops out at about 160kmph.

I modfied a brand new Vulcan (custom world) backrest and luggage rack for our bike. I can post pics and tell you what the items were if it would help you. This one is much better than the stock one sold overseas, as this one sits back from the edge of the seat, giving the passenger more room between them and the driver. Not sure about what accessories you were looking at, so just let me know. KawaBrian

You might touch base with the ZL Owners Association(http://www.zl-oa.com). This site is dedicated to the Eliminator series, from the '80s to modern day. There might be some information there of use to you, and the knowledge on that site has saved my bacon more than once.

Good luck!!!
