Paint looks great and the bike looks fantastic! I would delete those reflectors on the front fender though.

Any plans on doing the zx6 suspension swap? I love the looks of the zx6 forks, sometimes I forget what the Z looked like with stock forks and realize how much meaner it looks with radial mounted brakes :headbang:

Oh yeah and GO BUCKS!!!

Go Bucks indeed.

Hindsight is 20/20 with those reflectors. I didn't even think about them till I put them back on. I'll get around to that pretty soon here.

As for the zx6 suspension... On the stock forks I tightened up the preload and increased the rebound dampening and put on a zx6 rear shock. My suspension feels pretty solid to me so probably not anytime soon for the 636 front end.

Header is 00-01. I bought it off of pghz1k. He had it on his bike for a while so it was already cut and re-welded for a Z1K.:headbang:

I seen the bike this past Friday and it does look great-the pix do it no justice. Nice to see my bike in the background, to bad you did not get some pix of out bikes together Cj- Oh well next time.

NICE! Thanks for posting the pix up. That was a fun ride we had-well all but me almost getting sucked into the gaurd rail on 271 at 90mph-damn Ohio roads.

Hmm. Those shots look kind of familiar. I'm guessing that's the parking lot at Gander Mountain in Twinsburg. Do I win a prize if I'm right? :~

Shameless plug for another thread: Just updated the SE Ohio ride thread in the Group Rides section. Check it out, guys. Hoping to see a few of you this Sunday!
