The Ninja ZX-14 might be one of the most popular sports bikes ever to hit the scene. Introduced in 2005 at The Tokyo Motor Show, the ZX-14 would go on to live a healthy stint from 2006-2022. It is one of Kawasaki’s most successful motorcycles in the Ninja sport bike series and a favorite amount motorcycle enthusiasts. The aftermarket support for the ZX-14 is great, with many different modifications to choose from. While most people are purchasing the ZX-14 for the speed, many are choosing to upgrade them with other aftermarket parts, such as air suspension. Today, we will look at the benefits of adding air suspension to a Ninja ZX-14 and what is required to install it.
What Are The Benefits Of Adding Air Suspension To My Ninja ZX-14?
Being a sports bike, the Ninja ZX-14 had a sporty suspension that was tuned for performance and sat really well. As motorcycle enthusiasts, we are always looking to modify bikes to our liking, and air suspension allows you to do just that. Let’s take a closer look at some of the best benefits of adding air suspension to your Ninja sport bike.
More Comfortable To Stop At Stoplights
With the design of the Ninja ZX-14, many people can rest both feet firmly on the ground at stop lights. For those with shorter legs, this could be a little uncomfortable or not doable at all. With air suspension, you can air down at stop lights to get a more comfortable stop, allowing you to rest more between rides.
Adjust Your Suspension When You Want
With air suspension, you can easily adjust your suspension to the type of riding you are doing in minutes. With aftermarket shocks, this usually requires the use or special tools to accomplish. Using air suspension, you can firm up your suspension to drive more spiritedly or loosen it up for a more comfortable feel on longer drives.
Gives Your Motorcycle A Great New Look
The most common reason that many people add air suspension to their Ninja motorcycle is for the looks. Air suspension allows you to raise and lower your motorcycle to the exact height you would like, within range of the system, so you can get the look you have always wanted.
