I have no experience with your model, but sometimes they are located on the petcock, inside the tank. Edit: I cannot find old diagrams, but at least ZZR600's some years younger than yours seem to have had those. Oldest diagram I could find at the moment: http://www.motosport.com/SE/motorcycle/oem-parts/KAWASAKI/2003/ZZR600/FUEL-TANK
The rule-of-thumb I was taught is to pull the chain away from the back of the sprocket. If the chain pulls away by more than half a roller it's time to replace it.
I got this advice from this website: Go to your rear sprocket and pull straight back on the chain. If your chain pulls away from the sprockets by much, it is probably stretched out. If the chain does not pull away and stays right on the sprocket, then the chain is not stretched out yet. Also, if your sprockets no longer look like points but a bunch of ...
I doubt it would be the ECU. Those are typically all-or-nothing. Sounds more like a bad wire or electrical connection. Test the wiring harness to the injector with an analog volt meter. Put one meter lead to ground and the other on an injector lead while the motor is idling: If the needle doesn't swing then try the other injector lead (if there are two, ...
This isn't unusual. I'd go as far as to say I'd be suspicious if I had a shop replace the front brake pads on my motorcycle and didn't hear them skimming the rotor a little. It's normal for the pads to touch the disc a little, and it's especially audible at low speed and after a fresh install. Now, that said, if the pads are indeed rubbing enough to slow ...
I had the same problem with my Katana 600. Ran some Seafoam through it and it got better, presumably cleaned up any deposits from gas sitting in the carbs too long.
Whether it can be done or not, I don't know, but it is unlikely that changing the shocks will significantly affect what you feel in your back. Comfort issues are far more likely to be caused by riding position, seat quality/age, and seat shape. A friend of mine had similar problems due to an old seat and resolved them by cutting a memory-foam pillow to fit ...
Those bikes are small engine, low torque and consequently have smaller/narrower chains. They are designed for use commuting to/from work with little or no protective clothing over your normal clothes. Consequently the chain needs to stop spatter getting on your clothes and as a result has a chain guard. The chain - due to its smaller weight and less torque ...
