Are you using the old wheel bearings?
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

The ends of the valve cover are not painted on a stock '73 engine. Are you leaving them black?

I am polishing the cover ends.
Racing against time and snow, hope to ride in November.

Those shocks look really nice! Did you find someone to rechrome the dampers?
