For me Kidkawie made the best reproduction steering head VIN sticker!!!


I bet Kidkawie will know!

I’ll share a repop sticker after I get home. That darn responsibility thing called work is being a rock in my shoe right now.

Those look really good. I will put mine on the steering head when I remove the forks for the reseal. And since it's been a couple pages since this thread was green... B)

I just found out the two lower rod bearings I ordered from CMS in the UK are in Fort Worth, TX today. It shipped three weeks ago, so I am considering this good progress. I have heard people say it took Int'l shipments over two months to arrive to them on some things. Since I have a week long fishing trip planned soon, they will arrive the day before I leave (isn't that how things always work out?!).

Skidmark,
Sorry, I just saw your private message today, which is probably way too late. But I will post up this info incase someone finds it useful.
I also had issues finding enough black rod bearing shells, so I found that Kawasaki changed the material content for the zr-7 rod bearings and gave them new part numbers and changed one of the color codes. I am currently using zr-7 Black connecting rod bearings (part # 92028-1921) in my kz750e motor and they are a direct replacement.
Keep up the good work, your entire project is AMAZING!
