Big plastic repair job. Rider since I was 16 and I am 75 now. This is fourth Kawasaki KZ900, KZ1000 mk II, GPz 1100 handled like a three legged camel. Enough fun to keep me busy all Winter.
You were better off. GPz went like the proverbial striped ape in a strait line and handled like it had a hinge in middle.welcome aboard, nice score! I almost bought a Gpz1100 but felt there were not enough of them sold here in the US to have access to cheap second hand parts. Love the EX btw.
I liked them a lot. Unfortunately both got ripped off. That's how I got the GPz.
So ... 15 I got a 1947 Cushman scooter for 40 bucks.. I traded it in on a 61 Mustang scooter. I sold that to buy 1962 250 YDS2 Yamaha and hated two strokes ever since. 1963 I sold that to buy used 1963 Velocette 500 Clubman. Stupid me I sold it when I got drafted and enlisted. 1967 on leave I bought 1967 500 Thruxton Velocette. 1969&70 I raced the Thruxton. 1975 I sold the Thruxton. 1976 I bought the KZ900. And the worst motorcycle mistake of my life I bought 1985 R80 BMW for a daily rider. It was awful! I gave it to my nephew. It tried to kill him too. All and all it's been a lot of fun.

MOTUL 7100 !!Ordered Haynes repair Manuel, oil filter, 4 L. Motul 7100 4T 5W40. Who knows what oil is in it.
Michelin Road 5 tires on back order. Looks like 17 inch Michelin tires hard to find.
Wow! It sure hates gravel roads. What a wrestling match. 1/4 mile both ways from home to paved road.
Title is all SNAFU. No worries. Should finish project by next Spring. No hurry.
Still have muffler patch and plastic mess to fix. - Ray
