I’m looking through Fast from the Past’s website and can’t find a direct match. There’s a set that’s labeled ‘1980 gpz550’. I’m kinda thinking that’s it although there wasn’t a gpz550 in ‘80, but it’s the closest description and I know the other similar options won’t be direct fits bc they are different like the ‘82 unitrack or the KZ versions.
It looks like it's using the passenger-peg hangers as the mounting point. It *looks* like it should work on the 81. The front footpegs are in a slightly different location on the standard models, but they mount using the same frame boss... not related to the rear-peg hangers. And I believe the 1980 Kz550 standard did not use the bolt-on hangers anyway, so that kit would have to be for the 81 and later models, Gpz or not.
I went to rear sets that one of the previous owners cobbled together for racing (along with clip-ons). It's fun , but can get a little tiring on long rides. Those in the listing look to have a similar riding position.
That's a great looking kit and the price hasn't really gone up a whole lot over the years.
I think you’re right. It’s gotta be for an ‘81, kz or gpz. There’s a different kit for the kz models that don’t have the bolt on hangers and ones for the 82-83 so that only leaves the 81 w/ bolt on hangers.
I just emailed them. Hopefully they can confirm and correct their description.
They are a little pricier than a universal kit but then I’d have to put together the linkage kit and have mounting brackets fabbed up. That $310 starts looking pretty reasonable I think
Well I heard back from FFTP. Since Tarozzi is Italian the models listed are European (even though FFTP is a US distributor) and they can’t confirm what fits what in US models. They were nice enough to send me drawings to ‘review and decide for myself’ what fits. That would typically be fine and all but it’s pretty hilarious that the drawings have no measurements what so ever. They are just what’s on the website which is just drawings of the parts with part numbers
