    ZRX Topics of Discussion

    So in all these years, is there ANYTHING (anything at all???) that has not yet been discussed about the ZRX?

    You mean, is there anything about the ZRX that you have not yet posted about? Probably not.

    I was just looking at a wiring diagram for a simple airplane. Did you ever achieve comfort looking at a 12v diagram for anything?

    Actually, on that topic I could actually make a list. Just one example, I've never posted about setting up an FI system for the ZRX. That topic has been discussed though.



    Well, I guess I can't use that particular example anymore having just posted about it.

    I've never had much trouble interpreting electrical diagrams. It's the actual hands on diagnosis (trouble shooting) of the system that is problematic for me.

    FI big advantage is better fuel atomization, as only vaporized fuel burns. For a guy who doesn't have the stuff to reprogram the CPU, carbs might be better to work with, but he still has to understand the carbs.

    For some folks, an inability to apply data means one has learned by rote (memorizing), rather than understanding. We could fix that with a phone call, because you will not be dropping by on the way to the store. It is simpler than you might think.

    Back at the parts house, some customers were trying to fix the car in front of them by applying the fix for a car they saw last year. Learning by rote.

    Problem; it pops through the carb. If they guy names what fixed Uncle Harry's car, he doesn't understand the systems. I once wrote out a list of 17 things that would make an engine pop through the carb.

    I'm heading out to the yard to do some technical rock gathering and moving to a pile while it is still cool.

    Someone needs to produce an oil cooler kit for the ZRX...…...pan (or parts to modify the pan??), cooler, lines, fittings, etc.
    I know ……...I know...………(I'm wearing my flame-retardant suit today)…….it does not "need" an oil cooler since being water cooled. But it does not "need" 50% of the stuff we change-out, modify, delete, add. Take Reflectors for example...……..wait...…..nevermind.
    I've screwed over 13,233 ZRXOA members in the past.......who's next in line??

    Re: ZRX Topics of Discussion

    No quote again....

    Any water cooled engine I've had and put an oil temp gauge on did not need an oil cooler and I'm pretty sure that apply's to the ZRX. The oil temp is within a few degrees of the water temp unless you really load the engine for a period of time, ie climbing Vail Pass or the Eisenhower tunnel approaches in my old Bronco. Then the oil temp would slowly climb to 260- 270 deg while the water temp peaked at 210 deg. As soon as I got over the top and backed off the temp dropped quickly back to the water temp. The oil temp climbs as it pick's up heat from the hard working pistons. The ZX11 had an oil cooler due to all the bodywork containing the heat that radiates off the engine, this is not an issue with the ZRX. An air cooled airplane piston engine that normally operates at 60%, 80% or even 100% throttle most of the time definitely needs a large oil cooler and probably has piston cooling jets.

    Be aware there is such a thing as too cool oil.

    Putting an oil cooler on the ZRX is as simple as using the ZX11 parts. The cooler itself hook's into the engine instead of the short oil hose under the engine.

    Have we discussed to death that little plastic thing that clips onto the back of the engine and keeps the hoses all neat and orderly?

    If I may chime in here, perhaps some guidance for those in the future. I love having a centerstand where possible and took the plunge.

    I bought the Zeus (there was a somewhat lengthy wait as it was made-to-order), and it's a very nicely made piece. The return springs that came with it were far too weak (I did contact them about this), played with tension on the bolts, and then bought half a dozen other various springs on Ebay. Once I was comfortable with the retraction, and actually staying in place, I encountered another problem.

    It's a powder-coated piece, along with the footers, which just slid along my garage floor. Even after roughing the footers, I still had to wedge my foot in front of it and push the bike, which is a bit precarious (nothing like potentially breaking your ankle and dropping the bike). I noted the same on the (much coarser) surface at work. In the end, I just gave up, and threw it in a cabinet. I REALLY wanted it to work, but just couldn't make it happen.

    YMMV.

    Just saw this statement in a post and thought it appropriate here.

    This may have already been discussed in the past, but I couldn't find anything when I did a search.


    Yeah, it probably has been discussed.
