Yes my has the blinker alarm on the right side bars mount
That sounds like the emergency flasher thats mounter on the right hand bar mount.
YES! Another part that was promptly removed as being useless/excess weight. I always thought they looked like a cigarette lighter.

Good news, After a couple short painless emails I received an electronic voucher for $70 at Sears.com to replace the torque wrench. All it took was a few photos and a description of the reason for the warranty claim. They asked for proof of purchase. Of course that is long gone so my reply to that question was "I have the item in my possession and I'm not in jail, i guess that's my proof of purchase."
I had my Z1B ones powder coated, but a purist would frown. So far so good...no chips or flakes.
Your Z’s are different. But your ‘80 should have the same bracket that mounts the caliper and aslo retains pad A. Well I messed up when shipping to powder coat and the ID of the hole for the pad got coated. It reduced the clearance and the pad would not fit. I found out how tough that powder coating is trying to remove it. So I don’t think you going to get any chipping.
OUCH Matt! Powdercoat is tough!!!, nothing a 1/4" air grinder and some barrel sand rolls at 20,000 rpm's can't handle!
My Guy over the years, liked me! I always took him everything cleaned and glass beaded. I put screws in any threads.
Plus he gave me some off the 400° tape that I would tape off stuff I did not want covered. He pre-baked low heat to get moisture out, Then did it to it! I always wanted to start with the Eastwood Kit, I had an electric oven I stripped, but never followed through.
But! MAN you are getting SERIOUS on your restoration!!!! EXCELLENT JOB SO FAR!!!!!
Good for you!
It's going to be very nice! I don't recall any paint details? Hope your going to match OEM! Brown or Green?
If you knew the stuff I threw out and gave away, late 80's and into the 90's! Plus I scored big time in the early 2000's when I started eBay selling! I helped a lot of guys with parts all over the world, mostly Australia.
Can't wait to see the finished motorcycle!
Happy New Year!
