kz400 to get upgrades



while im waiting for vulcan parts, the kz is going to get some much needed upgrades. 15 inch apes, mikuni vm30 round slide carbs with new manifolds, fuel lines and a 1-2 throttle cable. motion pro extended clutch cable, and new throttle and control levers. if i can find the right size wheels im gonna go with disc brakes all around. rear sissy bar, side mount license plate with leds, new signals and headlight. probably extend the forwards if i stay with mechanical brakes.

thanks, after todays ride to support the humane society was done, i was able to start tearing it down. apes are on so when the new carb set up gets here i can start working. new apes are on, measured fro new cables and will call motion pro on tuesday to get them started. tonight im looking at all new hand controls and mirrors. thinking of going to a round femder and a tall sissybar. if i can find a coffin tank in the 4 to 5 gallon range. ill grab it.

Work has kept me busy to do much at all. but got most of the parts now. new carbs, clutch and front brake cable, new throttle cable assembly for the carbs i have to cut and solder. new sprockets and chain. waiting on the welder to get here, should be here saturday. then i can do the side mount license plate and sissybar. need to get this back together so i can start on the vulcan. found a place that will make me a conversion sprocket for the transmission so i can use a bolt on trike rear. wont be too much to manufacture that way and ill be able to do it for a lot less
