I guess I have to do this

Hello,

Owner of brand new z1000 2016. Had the bike for two weeks and already took it apart and added Fender Eliminator and Integrated Tail Light...

Plan to do a few more visual mods before I get started with performance.

Not taken the way I meant it. Never was a very good Comedian. Proof of that.

Deadline, Have no idea where you are located but if you could make it to NC we will be riding the Gap again this year. If you could make it it's a blast to ride. Keeps dragging me back. Love the vibe of the place must be all the bike people in one place! Great Day All!

Nice bike! Fender eliminator def. cleans the rear of the bike. I don't have an integrated tail light myself, but would want one. Having no external turn signal is prohibited where I live and law enforcement is on our case when it comes to legality... Trying to avoid fines as much as I can lol

I managed to find some small turn signals and installed flush mount front turn signals & bar end mirrors on mine. Changed everything! Here's what it looks like :


Current bike: 2016 Z1000

Previous bikes: 09 GSXR1000, 04 Z1000, 03 YZF-R6, 03 FZ1

The stock red of the tail light looks great with the seat color. And I didn't even notice the turn signals at first. I have been having hard time finding proper fitting front turn signals that are flashed with the body. Which ones are you using there? Look great...

Thanks! I'm actually looking for a black seat to replace it... I plastidipped the red body parts (bike came in graphite gray / red)

I bought these for the front for 10$. They are not a perfect fit, but they are OK.

These are my rear ones, but they would fit in the front for sure.
