Installed my lowering links, took longer and with more frustration than I expected. Having done them once they would be much easier if I did them again as I would do a few things differently.

Iíve ridden it a couple of times now and for me itís amazing how much of a difference 1 inch lower makes the bike feel. Perhaps itís all in my head but I feel much more confident at stops and the weight of the bike seems lower and easier to manage; nothing like the boxer twin on my BMW but better. Anyway I really like the improvement.

They come off, but i cant remember if the throttle side was a reverse thread.

Hey guys! Just picked up my 2021 Z H2. It did not come with an owners manual and I am completely lost on the electronics as far as setting power, traction control, ABS and the like. I'm coming fresh off of 9 years on a 2012 Ninja 1000 SX so I'm literally going from a flip phone to an iPhone with this bike. If anyone has a link to a downloadable owners manual or even a good youtube video that can walk me through this new electronics stuff Thanks ahead of time! :-)

here's the public link to the manual available from Kawasaki...

They have a website that you can sign into for free and see you manual, but it's been broken for over a month. The Vehicle search blows up after you select your bike.
https://www.kawasaki.com/en-us/owner-center/service-manuals

Might be rare to find it in PDF form since it's generally free online with a searchable index. Bad luck that the site is broken I suppose.

Hey guys! Just picked up my 2021 Z H2. I got the mirrors off by loosening the top nut and just spinning them off. My question is do the polished pieces with the second nut come out as well? I ask because I don't want to strip them but they don't seem to want to budge in either direction. Any help would be fantastic, Thanks ahead of time!

Yes, it's very impressive technology from Kawasaki as very few race bikes have the ability to auto-blip so smoothly all the way down to 2,500rpm let alone down to 1st gear. With "Decel Cut" reactivated and "Accel Enrichment" deactivated, I'm now learning to be more precise with my throttle input to help manage the somewhat abrupt on/off throttle transition (selecting Road or Rider [F] modes also helps with this). It's just way too much of a compromise not being able to confidently downshift and ready the bike before corner entry. One must weigh up whether a less sensitive throttle or the likely damage to the gearbox/drive-line when always jerking down through the gears using the auto-blip quickshifter is worth it.

That all said, I'm hopeful that Woolich will likely have a revision out soon to sort this all out!

I have the same issue after the Woolich remap.  I had the remap done to get rid of the ridiculous amount of engine braking when the throttle is closed and then the jerk when it's opened. The remap cured this problem  (I had no interest in more power.)
The autoblipper is basically useless after the remap.
I had the decel fuel cut re-enabled, but the snatchy throttle returned, so I had disabled again, so no autoblipper.
To be honest I'm disappointed that Woolich can't fix this.
The Woolich UK agent said it might be possible to change the mapping to get it a bit smoother, but that is another £425!

Is it a problem on the ZX10R? (No autoblipper on a track day would really piss me off!)

After i changed the fuel cut, its smooth as butter. Had the z out on track on saturday and it did amazing.
