PSC's ZRX1100

14_kawasaki_zrx1100_01.jpg

The owner acquired this ZRX1100 via Custom Shop PSC and has continued to rely on them for its maintenance and customization. When he got this, it was already repainted in blue, and the wheels and swingarm had already been refurbished, but some parts, such as front forks, cylinder head cover, steps, had been replaced after. The owner wanted to create an attractive motorcycle custom with a fancy look. In general, gold and silver will come first to satisfy that goal. However, it is difficult to maintain a well-balanced coloring using both. Basically in this custom, changing the look was a task that could not be done without the support of PSC.

And likewise, PSC's supports are also highly relevant to the ZRX's performance improvement. Customers are not knowledgeable to handle that work, and it was the same for the owner. For example, if a customer wants to install a FCR carburetor, not only the carburetor itself but also the fuel cock must be replaced as well, with a one which accomodates high-flow. By this way, fuel flow will be stay in a sufficient amount for the FCR carburetor and maintain the performance. Such issues are naturally cared by maintenance professionals like PSC, but it is also important for riders to add an extra step like professionals do to achieve a higher performance than before. Professional's advice will be more helpful if an issue is difficult to solve. Such a relationship of trust will make your motorcycle life more enjoyable.
