02\' 748?

I heard they where doing something with the 748 for 02'. 110 HP at the rear wheel? Not sure where I heard it though. Also, What are the valve adjustment intervals for the 01' 996, 02' 998 and 02' or 01' 748? Appriciate any info.

HP is a poor substitute for experience and ability.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, not a chance for 110hp at the rear probably not near that at the crank. Who cares though, torque is king and the 748 has more than enough of that for any street rider. 6000 mile intervals on the 996/748 and probably the same on the 998, but I am not sure.

If I'm shootin at ya and ya stay still, your probably safe.

The first check (for you bike and to the shop) is @ 3.5 hours. That will set you back about $275.00, then again @ 6200mi., which is $400.00.

The special treatment for the 748 is the new titanium grey and red color scheme.

Maintenance is at 600 miles and then again at 6000, 12000 and so on. The service costs will differ by local and dealer; I paid about $130 for the 600 and I've been quoted $450-600 for the 6000.

i just switched from a 00 zx7r to a 01 748 and really cant tell a lot of power loss, plus the duc is more fun to ride and the exhaust note makes it all worth any power loss. the duc is more stable in turns also.

even your garage door goes up and down a little faster with a ZX7R inside.

Re: 02\' 748?

I took my "S" over to Duc748's house today to throw on a new slotted clutch cover, and we noted a few other minor differences, but overall and in particular, power-wise, they are the same. As he stated, the only major differences lie in the color, the 5-spoke Marchesini's, the Showa rear shock (vice Sachs), the Corse tires, and the TiN coating on the Showa forks.

According to reports online, the 748/748S puts out 89 HP at the wheel. Personally, if it did have 110 HP at the rear wheel, I wouldn't know what to do with it. "She's" plenty fast enough as it is.
