Start Button

The start button on my z1000 has broken and fallen off - ordered a replacement from ZP and see it has a lip so assume you need to access from inside - How easy is it to access to replace ? Cheers all.

Re: My dream bike .. kz1000 A1

Yeah she's a beaut alright Damien - They are addictive as I had a Z1000 in 1978 and came back nearly 40 years later - Mines a couple of years younger than yours :biggrin

Re: Noob questions keep coming...

Assume that's just the tray - what about the wallet/Tools that fit in it ?

Air Filter

Was thinking about replacing the stock filter on my z1000 A2 with K&N pod types which I think look good - Is this easy to do and what else do I need to consider.Are K&N the best option and what size do I need to look for ? Cheers all. :blah
