Anyone know some good ZX14 forums?

Lol doing anything on the 14 is alot of work cuz of all the plastics but it's not to bad u get use to it. The butterflies were actually easy as long as u don't strip the screws. Trick is to heat the screws up with s soldering iron to loosen the loctite.

no doubt about the screws on this. They are soft as ........ if you need help man you can see there are plenty of us willing. Dont get yourself up a reek without a paddle. Give us a ring im sure well all do our best to help.

YES! ^^^ If i remember right, ita a #2 phillips screwdriver- heat them up and give the screwdriver a good tap on the end with a hammer before you try to unscrew. dont kill it with the hammer, just a firm tap to jar loose the locktite! Dont strip them or youll be getting them tapped out. makes a big difference down low in the RPMs of the 06 and 07's
