    Nice piece of classic hardware there.

    Actually like it better "nekkid"

    Nicely done. I too prefer the naked look.

    It looks like you upgraded the swingarm and suspension.

    How's she run?

    The swingarm is of a GSX 1100 to fit a 150 tyre. Also have progressive springs in the front fork.
    Considering the handling of the stock Z's I think I am pretty happy with that one now..

    Cheers

    I thought it looked familiar. I just got a GS1100E swingarm and hope to put it on my KZ as part of her winter makeover.

    Here she is now



    I know the shocks won't work. What kind did you put on yours?

    Nothing special, just ordinary koni shockies!

    That's a tidy looking unit you got there, I always liked the 650. Every now and then they pop up fpr sale on eBay here but there is not much price difference between them and the 900/ 1000 Z's.
    Gosh, I'd like to get a few more but the minister for interior and finance has just digested bike No 2.........give it time

    Cheers.....off to work now ........and such a nice day outside!

    Over here, 650s fetch 1/4 to 1/3 the price of a 900 or 1000.
    I bought this one last year after a 12 year layoff from motorcycles. After I made her roadworthy, it was pretty clear I wanted more power, and the REX was at the top of my list. I got my 02 last month and the 650 has sat ever since. I plan to keep both so I have one bike to keep up with my go fast buddies, and another for my slower riding friends.

    As a memeber of the Z Owners Club here in OZ one must posess a Z to be a full member.
    Mine has been sitting for three weeks as I have to fix a loose alternator and the starter clutch. Being a Chef I do not have the necessary skills to do this unsupervised, so I am waiting for a couple of mates to come over to give me a hand.
    Cost me a Sunday BBQ and a few beers
