Hi: I just found this forum today and as I own a ZX-14R 2012, I though it is a good idea to join here. I live in Bogota, Colombia, South America. Eventhough supersport motorcycles became very popular in my city on the past years, the ZX-14R is not, just know about mine, other 2014 and Heard about a third one in the whole country. Other bikes like R1, R6, GSX-R, CBR, ZX-10 are common mostly in my city. Going out on sundays is easy to find over 300 sbk on the road.
My bike is the non abs model, has very few mods which are yoshimura slip ons, BMC air filter, 4 HID lights and Barnett clutch. I bought a Power Commander V but is not here yet.
I use that motorcycle to travel, going out of town on sundays and some times as my ride to work.
My goals are those, to have a reliable motorcycle but also want to make some more power to use it on our local 1/4 track (which is not a real drag way, just use the straight part of the circuit track. This is a poor country and we run in very different conditions starting for the Price of the motorcycle which is about 50-70% more expensive than in USA because of taxes and transportation from your country. The 2015 model was on local Kawasaki dealer page over usd 25.000. Another issue is our gasoline, poor octane (81 and 87 octane) is the only available (87 is about usd 4.50 per gallon) and imported gasoline cost 40 usd per gallon. To complete our disadvantages, this city is at almost 9000 feet over the sea level, that means any N/A engine here lost about 30% of power for less barometric pressure and lower oxigen in air
That's why, when you can watch our drag race videos, times will be ridiculous high for all of you, I am very happy with my last 11.174 while the fastest Street bike did 11.111. Other bikes do 11.5 and over.

I guess that's all for now, tomorrow will upload some pictures and fill my profile info.
Greetings!
