    Default My build thread...81 KZ650

    So I guess I am going to start a thread documenting the transformation of Kz650.
    Heres what Im starting out with:


    And heres what I have got done so far:



    not alot done but it's a start. No certain plans yet, just a few ideas coming together as I go along. Going to take me a while between work and school and trying to skate if there is anytime after that. But stay posted, more updates soon.

    Not exactly sure. I do know im going to try and strip it of everything unnecessary, wheels... seat... exhaust ect. ect. just the extra stuff. then probly slap one of these on the back..


    so it will give the illusion of "mooning" everyone, while giving them a chance to try and throw spare change in my snatch so I can afford to keep buying new things for my bike.

    im so in decisive. i would love a hardtail. but id rather have a hardtail on a smaller bike. i might extend the swingarm a little bit, would make it lower too. who knows. hopefully find some tiny shocks, might try to cut the springs i have. hopefully get a rocket launcher on there somehow but homeland security is getting iffy about it

    they should have eye's on both ends already,so it should just be a bolt on deal afaik.i know the kz1000 guys say it is a bolt on deal,hth.

    hmmm, im pretty sure the shock mounting set up is the same for the 1000 as the 650s
    sporty shocks might be a good way to go

    you might have to grind or mod something on your swing arm. because the kz shocks are really skinny on the bottom and rise up, but some shocks are fat on the bottom. kinda like if the top of the kz shock was the same way on the bottom. if you understand what im saying.

    edit: like this....

    this question is probably fucking stupid. but do you think dirt bike shocks will work? found some on ebay, they say mono shock but its the same style so if you got 2...would it work. they got a snazzy look to them but just wondering if they would hold up, be strong enough....although they are used for jumping ramps and shit.

    I've wondered the same thing about dirt bike shocks myself.
