Be carefull with those metal filters. They are good, no problem, but I think you will have to adjust the carbs, otherwise you will experience some loss of power. I heard this story many times, but I never did it myself...
ANyway, I suppose you know that already

@ Dave

Not sure if I'm going to use a kelk or a filter. Those on roadrocket are pretty expensive.
They go around 8 euros/piece in my locale shop and filters 20euro/piece (its Takegawa but fits as well,same quality and way cheaper then k&n)
If u have the normale 29mm carbs that is.

About the brakes, its going to chance a little more modern Laughing cause I dont wanna kill myself Very Happy



@ Z650

Because the airflow increases without filter you have to adjust your jet to make sure your air/fuel mixture is fine.
In some shops you can buy little drillbores to make your jet-hole bigger.
But this kind of adjustments takes alot of time and alot of cursing ! Rolling Eyes
Thats my experience anyway, but practice makes perfect.
Some guys at my work do this with there eyes closed scratch study

I can relate to that with the loss of power when installing sport filters and maybe even a different exhaust.

Manually drilling the jet solves the problem but dont drill too big cause when you drill too big theres no way back. Wink (ruimerset)

Nope, bought it out curiosity! Very Happy
Not even sure if an electronic ignition gives better performance with such a low compression engine.
Time will tell Very Happy Though, lost of people used them in the seventies.

Bought a emblem for the keys, thought it would make the picture

The frontwheel is polished and respoked. Rear is also polished except the spokes are paintend (will respoke these when budget alows)

Thx for the compliments! If I find a back-step for a suzuki I will tell you!

Ow they do look like scratches! But in fact they are residues of glue of the pipe insulation I used To protect the farme while mounting.
Thinking of using the exhaust I bought from you on this one. Think it will fit nicely! Very Happy

And like andreas would say: Thank you for the flowers! Very Happy
