Did you powder coat the frame?
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.

Why did you replace the sticker? Was the old one badly damaged?

This bike had only 16,000 miles on it but at some point original owner went chrome nuts,you name it he had it chrome,so over time I have been collecting parts to bring her back to former glory.

BTW, the new VIN sticker is upside down. Should be readable from the right side of the bike.

Unfortunately Scirocco is correct. I checked photos of my 76 kz900 when I dropped it off at the powder coat, and I looked at my 78 1000 LTD and they are opposite of yours.
