The Z900 was a budget bike for sure, power was linear , like a electric engine, which I didn’t care for. I removed old exhaust and put on akrapovic. The bike really woke up and developed a hooligan personality!, we sold it in great condition, bought a Versys 1000 which is a great bike that does all things well…but i am not ready for that yet, which brings us to the GSX.

Took bike out and purposefully tried to make clutch slip. Couple things I noted: wow this throttle has a large throw, as in have to twist a lot to achieve wide open throttle. Second is clutch must have been slipping more than just what I thought, as I went to wide open throttle it lifted the front wheel even in 3rd gear. noticed no slipping at all. Seems to be the Clark Kent of motorcycles… mild by day.
