I put together a Video from some clips and added some music. This is just a first attempt, and will try to make a different camera mount to see more of the road and still hear the engine.

Well I had my first ride after 5 + months of hibernation.

Some of the Winter mods done:

Electronic Ignition added from a later model kawi
Exhaust high heat powder coated
GPz front fender added
Clear points cover found
Rear sets painted Gold
ZX tail light and rear signals swapped on
Teeth paint on lower cowl
Koni shock rebuilt
Oil cooler removed, due to stripped oil drain plug in pan


Still to come:
Braced swingarm
Z1R 18" front wheel swapped on from current 19"

Dood! Is that a plexi points cover? If so, that is bad ass! I wish i could do something like that with the zook. Secondly, how difficult was it to change to an electronic from a different bike? Ive been putting off buying a Dyna, and had planned to, but i have this feeling that it could be done, and i have a spare motor from which to take it...any advice would be great! Thanks

Josh
