I want to go with the stock airbox. I will give $10 + shipping on paypal. Let me know via pm. I will happily trade any parts in return. I have two extra Kz200 engines.

I chopped the smooth part off the top of the stock seat cushion/foam. I'm not sure I like it. I want something thicker than what you see many times with brat/tracker builds. I want a comfortable seat, but I want it to be thinner than the giant stock seat. I think I will try some thin padding from Lowes to compare and decide what I'm going to go with.

I think the seat is still too thick for a brat/tracker--what do you think?

I'm definitely getting some thin padding from Lowes.

I've decided to fill in the various bumps and valleys with spray foam, cut it flat after it has dried, and then put 1/2" pad on top of that. Here's my progress so far...waiting for the foam to dry.

Finished trimming the spray foam, and added the soft top layer of foam. It's not as comfortable as the giant pillow that used to sit on top of the stock pan, but it's gonna be more than adequate for an around-the-town bike. I like the seat height and shape now, and best of all I was able to keep the stock seat mounts and stock pan! And in case anyone is wondering, I spent $5 on a drywall hand saw at Lowes, and it was worth every penny. That spray foam is some serious shit. 

I'm gonna drop it off to be recovered tomorrow! More soon...

I'm dying to drop this thing off tomorrow...hope it gets refinished quickly. Can't wait to see what tan leather looks like on a black bike!

Gotta decide on color for the new seat cover. I think I'm going with the color on the right, but I will probably wait for my wife's opinion.

Picked up some old school dirt bike bars in trade for some old parts at the local used bike shop. I really like the cross bar and the off road/tracker look that they give the bike. I'm gonna grind them down, double check that they're straight, paint them black, and start reconnecting the wire harness and controls.

As soon as my top end gasket set comes in the mail, it will be time to tear into the motor!
