    Expect it to perform exactly like a Katana 1100.
    90% of motorcycle forum members do not have a service manual for their bike.

      I would think the ZX11 might be a little faster/quicker than the 1100 Kat because of the 6 speed transmission, and since it's watercooled it might be less finicky in hot weather than the air-oil cooled engines can be at times.

        Be aware of engine trauma issues like suspicious knocks, tranny issues, excessive engine chatter. Also, be aware of tranny problems. I pointed out those issues because a lot of those got over-revved and ridden pretty hard back in the day. I believe those engines were a very mechanically sound product.

        ZX11s are faster and stronger than the Kat1100, I got to ride them back to back ..... the BigNinja goes fast better than the Kat1100

        It's always in the numbers, men ..... ..... ZX11 ... BigKat

            They often suffer from an oiling problem involving, I believe, the #3 and #4s big end bearing. There is a fix out there that mods the pan. I think Mr. Turbo and a few others sell the mod. It's expensive, so the easiest solution is to use a top quality oil, keep it changed, and keep it topped up. If there's any evidence that the oil was neglected over it's life, then beware.

                That thing was the king until the Blackbird dethroned it. They were fast for their time and can still keep up with most anything on the road today.
