Love the days of Eddie Lawrson!!I had a Y2K ZRX 1100. the seat on the zrx was worse for me than the FZ's. The FZ is way more prone to wheelies, shorter wheelbase and more power, i guess. my zrx had a Muzzy SS full exhaust and Ivan's jet kit. It ran great, but didn't seem to have as much low down as the FZ.
Suspension wise, the ZRX had dual piggy back shocks, which seemed slightly better damped. (big surprise there) but it's been a long time since i rode the ZRX, and I really loved that bike, so maybe i'm just being kind.
All in all, if you offered me either bike today, i'd take the FZ. I do get nostalgic looking at the ZRX though.
Hey redeye! It was a fun ride. Ive ridden the black ZRX1100 behind it, around the block. It seems SO much heavier than the FZ-09. I prefer mine so much more. But they are quickNo experience aboard a ZRX, but yesterday I was riding with a group. One of the riders, a decent guy with a great sense of humor, was on a ZRX.
My observation is more a coincidence of timing (the rear carrier and black bag are visible on my FZ-09 at the top of the picture, taken near Charles Town, WV) than a personal comparison of motorcycles; sorry for thread drifting. But the ZRX was a sweet motorcycle and caught the eye very easily. However, I'll stay with my FZ-09!
Hi, FF. Completely missed the second ZRX. Looking at each of the motorcycles in Charles Town, I didn't recognize them by profile, but happened to notice the name on the side of the one closest to me. When I saw this thread later on, the ZRX name had become more familiar.Hey redeye! It was a fun ride. Ive ridden the black ZRX1100 behind it, around the block.
