9/14/08 Passed MSF! Woot!

Bought this '01 w/1300 miles on her. Looks like the previous owner dropped her on the left side and then left her in the garage for many years. She needs a better paint job, as the repair job done before I bought it is structurally sound, but cosmetically lacking (paint doesn't match well, and pulling off some OEM decals exacerbated the issue).

I took a week of vacation to get in touch with this little beast (she had a Muzzy) and do the required maintenance and desired upgrades. Adj'd valves, sync'd carbs, lubed chain and cables, shimmed cush drive, and installed the following:

Pirelli MT75's
Galfer SS brake lines
Racetech GVE's
Sonic Springs
15w fork oil
ZX600 Shock
New plugs
KIA Front flushmounts
KIA Rear clear pods w/1156A ST bulbs
Fender Eliminator
K&N Drop-in
Comagination Headlight and Brake Light Modulators
Mesh grills on fairing vents
Bar-end mirrors
Mike's windshield
12v Power outlet
Fuel filter
Reflective wheel stripes (Kawi Green)
Stebel Nautilus horn (a lifesaver)
GPS RAM mount
Alaska Leather Seat Pad (Niiice)

I got a lot of help within hours of posting questions to this board in the middle of some of these procedures. I wouldn't have attempted some of these things without this resource. A thousand thanks to all who make it possible.
