Naw, just an attempt at humor. Been getting lambasted for providing insight without writing a novel about it.

I love kawasakis and i also love parrallel twins. This will be a fun one to watch.

Right on.  Well I'll be here tonight instead of wrenching.    Cheers!

Yes! I love to see another 750 being restored to tasteful glory.

Mine is below - a '78.

Will be watching...

That was a blast!  35 years and these guys still command a serious mosh pit.

[edit] I wasn't in it.

A bunch of stuff on order, not enough but stuff that will help me move along.   I'm putting together a good size order to Z1E.  Also trying to source some local services like sandblasting.   Started cleaning up the forks and the triples, getting stuff ready for paint.  Some color options are still up in the air.

Cleaning up the swingarm.  Bearings and bushings are all good but looks like I should figure out something better for a chain slider.

NICE
 Live music feeds the soul.

I'm a low tech red neck with a shitty phone but here's a pic of my favorite band at practice, and another during setup and sound check at Bourban Jacks in Hastings Nebraska. The drummer is my brousin josh Johnson. We have a gig tonight as well, Firemans Ball in Wood River. I'll try to get a better pic tonight if I'm not too busy.

Get a chunk of Delrin and have it bored out to the pivot tube diameter, then fish mouth the inside edge. When you bolt the swing arm in it is entrapped. I did this on my kz1000
