z1000 rebuild

#1 PostAuthor: bunnysZ » Sat Apr 21, 2018 11:35 am

bought this just over a year ago , wasn't happy with the upside down forks , the engine needed some work , felt it wasn't running well, gave it to buzzard , he sorted the engine out and rebored it to 1075 , changed forks to zrx and custon yokes , cleaned it up etc and this is the end result
