2010 Kawasaki Z1000 Project Bike

came across this review, because I am considering buying a used 03 z 1000. I have ridden Motocross my whole life. As far as street riding, I owned a Harely for a few years, and a couple of other cruisers. This time around I wanted to lean in the sport direction. Go a little faster and start working on leaning the bike a little! I love the look of the Z, and naked bikes in general. My question is, for a newbie sport rider like me... How quickly will such mods really be necessary concerning the suspension? Will I even notice or be effected by the suspension woes, or is this one of those cases where only expert riders comparing a bike to race bikes notice these issues? HmmmmOur Kawasaki Z1000 has not been sitting idle in the garage. We've added an impressive new heads-up display and some new rubber to the green beast,Weighing just 2.5 ounces with its pair of AAA batteries, the MC2's display unit is lighter than it looks. Faceshield pivoting is not impaired by the installation.It was with great reluctance that we returned our Z1000 project bike back to Kawasaki. After two years of tinkering in our garage we had transformed the green meanie into an even more potent streetfighter.Our project Zed's wheelbase was stretched out a half-inch longer than the claimed factory spec. Do you suppose a few hundred wheelies might've stretched the chain?The wheel-speed sensor is attached to the swingarm with a supplied Z-shaped bracket. A magnet attached to the brake rotor triggers it, sending the information to the SportVue's control module under the passenger seat, then wirelessly to the heads-up display.
