    Not fair! Taunting me with that Z.... That's the right tool for Tail of the Dragon. Now I know what I'm doing on Saturday morning. Shopping for a scalpel... :-)

    Love the retro 900.  The radiator should help with longevity, loved the original when they came out. The 900's and 1000's looked and ran great.

    Was your headlight fairing an option? The US versions seem to be different. I'm shopping around but pickings are slim...

    .                                                               I got the fairing from pyramid plastics , the colour match is spot on, it was reasonably priced and delivered quickly , I did look at the chic fairing from Japan but it was very expensive , and I prefer the look of the smaller fairing .
