Hey guys. Bit late on closing the loop but I just thought I'd update you all, especially as you were all so kind as to respond to my thread.

So... I bought the Z. (<3) I removed the bar ends and stuck some shorter ones on, as well as replacing the mirrors for a narrower bike over all.

Edging it into the storage area, I got the bars in... Then kept going... Oof, the mufflers blocked entry. Much cursing followed but luckily I realised it wasn't going to fit BEFORE I scraped up the brand new Akra's.

For the short term, this meant I had to take the bike and keep it at my mother's house for 2 weeks.

Anyway, all good now. I rented a garage a 2 minute walk from our place. This has the added benefit of being able to park both bikes in one spot.

Thanks, guys!

how about some pics? sounds like a nice bike.
Also, could consider a 4-2-1 system? Not sure if there's one for ur bike, but on my Gen2 it saved a *ton* of space and weight!
