Kawasaki Purchase

Well it’s been a bit slow round here.  I’ve got a few fun projects to add to the site over the next few weeks.  First up though is my first motorbike.  I bought it last week and I’m very pleased with it.

It’s a 1978 Kawasaki KZ650, though its far from standard.  It’s had the front and rear of a ZXR400 added so has much better handling and braking.  It’s also got Ducati monster exhausts for added sound.

I plan on modernising and simplifiying the bike, with the aim of making it more cafe racer styled and losing some of the bulk.

First off I’d like to clean up the bar area as it’s currently got lots on.  I’ve a wish list of parts including the following

This will clean up the tired wiring and make the whole thing much more simple.

Next will be a new speedo

This is a tiny digital speedo, that will clean up the bars.

I think with these dream items I can clear the bars up a ton and clean up the current wiring a fair bit.
