Another Green Kwak in the Garage

#1 PostAuthor: Tonto » Sun Sep 23, 2018 2:24 pm

Bought this ZRX a few months ago - genuine 6k miles and all seems very tidy and legit, keys, original can, history etc. (pleasingly, not silly money).
Its my first Rex and what a lovely bike it is to ride, nice balance of power, handling, weight etc - not sure about those 6 pot tokico's though - braking seems ok, but lacking bite and a bit wooden: not sure if they all feel like that, or they need a strip and rebuild.

A nice standard Rex you have there and yes they are a great bike.
Yes the 6 pot Tokicos are a bit wooden/spongy but work well enough. They are a pain to keep in top condition and silly money to refurb.
I've had my Rex since 2010. They are great bikes, but it's easy to get carried away with with the modding.
Here's photos and details of mine.

I wish mine was that clean!
Great bikes, and you've got the best colour (IMHO), the flat lime green.
The anorak in me would put original mirrors on, but maybe those ones work better than the OEM!
Anyway, nice bike, I hope you enjoy it.
