I'm looking to get an aftermarket system for my 650, I've found a bunch of MAC exhaust systems for a reasonable price, but I can't seem to find any that are 4 into 2. I can only find 4 into 1 systems.

Hello everyone. I have a 1978 KZ1000 that I purchased new and am in need of replacing the rear tire. It came with Dunlop tires when new, but I don't think they are available any more. Any recommendations?
Ok, my 73 F11 had 7 disks or plates in it... but the parts motor I bought AND the Kawasaki friction plate set I bought both have 6... wtf??
Does anyone know what motors will fit into a 83 GPZ 1100 without too many mods. The reason I am asking is I have found a complete bike with a pooched motor that can not be rebuilt. Any help would be great.
First of all just wanted to say you guys have a great forum here. I just bought my first bike and first old-school Kawasaki.
