    Thanks, have your headlight ears on this build, looks great.

    KZ900 - updated suspension

    Doc you were correct. The new hub is the correct one, huge oversight on my part. The chain for sure clears the tire after a quick mock up, now I will just have to measure the correct offset once I get the correct rear sprocket, again. The black hub was the hold one.

    KZ900 - updated suspension

    Found the right hub on ebay for $20, score, should get it by by Friday and will know more then. Will have to order another rear sprocket :rolleyes:

    KZ900 - updated suspension

    The wheel is from a 88-90 zx10. Is it possible the hub is not, yes. I was looking last night and the hub does not sit flush in the wheel, I can see less than an 1/8" through to the cushion drive. I did not notice this before. Will have to do some investigating.

    KZ900 - updated suspension

    A few other things I have done is I cut off the key location on the upper triple tree and drilled/tapped holes on the underside for my gauge mount. Hooked up motogadget M-lock instead of moving the key location, which is pretty sweet. It is behind one of the side covers. Got the rear caliper...

    KZ900 - updated suspension

    I have the GS1100E swingarm mounted up and after getting the wheel in it looks to be centered and the sprockets align from what I can tell, but when I test fit the chain it is rubbing on the tire. If I were to do an offset front sprocket that is just giving me clearance to align the sprocket...

    wiring Motogadget Mlock WITHOUT m-unit

    I fixed it for good now. Lights only come on when toggled to do so.

    wiring Motogadget Mlock WITHOUT m-unit

    I got it sorted. 1st, I never fully made the relay do its job. I cut the main wire (white) running from ignition switch to fuse. From the fuse side that I wired that to #87, and from the ignition switch back is plugged into #30. Making that switch allowed the light to shut off when the bike...

    Maybe @Sonreir can chime in here with his opinion?

    wiring Motogadget Mlock WITHOUT m-unit

    Starting to wire up my mlock without the m-unit on my 77 KZ900. The directions are pretty poor at best but do come with a diagram. I have removed the ignition switch (4p connector), I cut the pin off and joined all together. Wiring the m lock solenoid #86 and #85 are straight forward, one...

    KZ900 - updated suspension

    My work around is I am sending my old sprocket off to Sprocket Specialists to make me a new one and to make sure the new sprocket will mate up with the hub. Once that is finished I need to install the rear caliper and make sure to get the wheel centered.

    KZ900 - updated suspension

    Have gone ahead and fitted a GS1100e swingarm with a 88-90 ZX10 rear wheel as well. The problem I'm dealing with now is trying to make sure my hub is actually from a zx10. The stud size should be 10x24 (when looking at the kawasaki part online), but when I measure with a caliper I'm looking at...

    Took a look at the prices on the drop triple trees, wow that's some serious $$$$. Here is where we sit as of now.

    KZ900 - updated suspension

    Yup, that is pretty damn good looking right there. Got the second brake rotor and caliper installed yesterday. I may have to look into getting that top triple (in due time), looks like there are plenty of companies out there who make these.

    KZ900 - updated suspension

    Thanks Doc. Appreciate the links that's what I'm looking for. I was looking for zx9 forks but these fell into my lap, if I need to switch at some point after riding I could always look for the longer zx9 forks, or search for options on lengthening them internally. I was hoping that the 636...

    KZ900 - updated suspension

    I am taking my '76 KZ900 and doing the swap to a 2003-2005 kawasaki 636 (zx6r) front end, I already have my KZ stem pressed into the 636 triple and it fits like a glove. I need to make the decision on using the clip-ons, or running some risers, would possibly need a new top triple to do this...
