Hey Jamathi, what milage is on the NS? It's in beautiful condition. I have one as a commuter with 110,000 klm on it and one as a spares bike, a jap inport, with under 9 on it. The commuter is sitting on my work bench at the moment waiting to get the rings done. I'll be doing a general tidy up while I'm at it.

Well, you asked for it...

My NS400R is much more fun to ride than my RZ500, and it's the only 2-stroke I've owned that hasn't leaked a drop of fluid.

In all fairness, the NS400R has mods and the RZ500 is stock.

RGV did not have that type of brake setup.


No wonder you enjoy riding that over the 500.
Now take one of Mick Costins 500's for a ride and compare again :-P

Looks like a 2003/2004 ZX6 front end?
Lovely looking little bike, but I have to say I always found the NS400 a little anaemic compared to the RD500. In the mid '80s my F2 350 YPVS was more than a match for the NS :cool: but it couldn't hold on to a 500 on a good fast road :sad:
