Within the next 2 weeks I will have a '99 zx9r.
Who'd a thunk ? When I was on my BSA's and Trumpies and "the boys" got their new fangled Kwaka 900s I thought "nah".
When I first saw the movie "Stone" , I thought "nah".
Now here I am , decades later , getting -----:biggrin: a kwaka 900 :biggrin:
And yes . There will be pictures.
Oh yes, there will be piccies! :biggrin:

Have you figured out what to do about the purple wheels? It's going to be almost 60 degrees here tomm., and I'm going to finish painting mine.

Dunno Tina. I do know that the poiple wheels are as ugly as a hatful, imho.
What "process" are you using with yours ?

Mine were already faded black. I used Rustoleum paint on them. Might work for yours. Take some light sandpaper and try it.
