84-86 GPz900r/zx900 owners, whats ur mod?

I've seen other threads like this around the forum for various cycles but i couldnt find one for the ninja 900, so here goes:

what mods are out there?

looking for confirmed mods, be them bolt on or retro fit from another bike.


wider swing arms if you got +2 grand burning a hole in your pocket
Kawasaki GPZ900 Parts

has anybody seen or done a retrofit mod with a newer cycles swingarm to get the wider tire?

I'm upgrading to F2 CBR wheels, surprisingly, adapting them is quite simple, its a bearing swap up front, a 530 conversion for chain, custom inner spacer, along with wheel spacers to center the rear wheel/chain, and you've got a perfect fit.

this is on my ZX1000 though. I'm still toying with adding busa front forks and brakes, but I"d need to create a new speedometer drive then.

uS EFI on an A2 seems to run alot smoother than carbs and way more responsive! I will probably do the wheel swap next for larger contact patch when the turbo goes on Im gonna use the zx9 wheels like DjBee but I think Im going for the zx11 swingger (it's beefer) also plan on changing the front end to USD forks w/320mm brakes and 6 pot calipers

There's no replacment for displacment, but Turbo gives you a boost!
