Been looking for a replica Z900RS fairing for a few months, as the OE fairing is ridiculously expensive. Finally found what I was looking for on a Japanese website, and it arrived today. Very pleased with the quality, and of course its carbon fibre.

Got the cases, cam cover and sump back from a local specialist who gave them a silver ceramic coating, very pleased with the results. The cylinder head couldn't be coated at the same time, as it was away at a local machine shop having its valve seats recut and getting a mild skim.

I unwrapped the head to see if the colours matched with the cam cover, as then perhaps it didn't need an expensive ceramic coating too. It looked pretty good..

However when I unwrapped the cylinder head for the first time since it came back from the machine shop, things weren't so good... they had somehow managed to break four of the fins. A pita as it took me months to find a head on Ebay which didn't have any broken fins. I think it can be repaired , not sure what's happened, but looks like its been dropped? The machine shop has a good rep, and normally they work on classic Porches, Astom Martins etc .

Got the cylinder head back with the broken fins repaired, looks good,.. now it needs to be coated to match the rest of the engine cases. While the frame has now been braced, but lack of room means it'll be some time before it will be powder coated, and the rolling chassis built up.
