Cheers for the offer Darren, mine are white reflectors in the MK11 tail that was butchered when I bought it, gonna cut it up, it's buggered anyway. The clocks are on and work apart from the high beam light. Fuel gauge and all is good. The best thing is the centre stand grab handle, no back breaking at the 4th attempt. Just need some bars now, mine are too low and are off an Fxr750. Nice trundle down the lane this evening looking at Kwak clocks :D

It’s still takes me 4 attempts to pull mine on to the Centre Stand even with grab Handles, they are a bit of lump :D . I replaced my handle bars with the semi low ones that Z Power sale, I found them to give a good riding position. Glad to hear it’s all coming together.

Just a tip with the stand, reverse the back tyre only on to a plank of wood etc first then put it on the centre stand, then pull the plank out it works a treat. much easier for weaklings like me
Used to have to do this on my Z1R as it was a lump too!

Top tip, it was damn near back breaking without the grab handle, that would have helped loads then if I'd knew.
I know it's polishing a turd, but it's my turd, and it's just taken me on a nice 140km trundle.

Proper handlebars next, it should feel better and give the brake hose some relief!

Ride and enjoy while playing with the GPz engine, it's not a pretty bike like Philippe's but it works and brings smiles.
