After a couple of months of a biking hiatus I took the ZX-9R for its long overdue MOT. Again like the K1300s I took the bike over to Bikes and Beyond in Shaw. They gave the bike a thorough MOT and as expected it passed with flying colours. He did mention that the chain was like a bow string though (a bit tight), not sure how it has got tight as I set it up correctly last time I checked it.

After the MOT I took the bike for a run and it ran really well considering how long it has been sat unused in the garage for. It also didn’t show any signs of bogging down at mid revs like it did last time I used it, the carbs probably still need stripping down and cleaning though I would guess.
