Not sure I'm digging the headlight, but damn that bike looks hot! If I seen that in person, I wouldn't of even guessed it was a Z1000 without closer inspection.

Dude, thats sick! I love it!

Was this a crash-conversion?? Or did you do it on purpose?

Either way, it rocks!

Can't see it here at work, they must have whatever image hosting site you use blocked; sucks to be me.

Really enjoy looking at this bike. I miss having a round headlight and there's a part of me that would like to follow a similar path as here, but do that round headlight with the dual Koso round gauges, too. Granted, my absolute lack of mechanical skill would make it tricky, but it'd be damn slick.

I love the Muzzy megaphone exhaust, I just can't imagine myself tolerating the noise. I had a megaphone on my old 599 and, without the baffle in, it bothered the heck out of me even when I wore earplugs. I don't want to add to the problem we have around here with exceptionally loud sportbikes... but I do love the look.

My 1977 KZ1000 is a 4-1 V&H megaphone without the baffle.... it sounds awesome. My Z1K OTOH, sounds like ***** without baffles.

Looks awesome, very "beefy" and intimidating. 5 stars!!! I like the headlight and the chin fairing too. The entire package looks damn good to me. Very nice.

Very cool... STREETFIGHTER all the way! Congrats on a kick *** conversion. Wish I could do the same, but Im having a hard time with 'easy' changes...

I love the look. And as someone else said, it looks very streetfighter. I like the bare bones tough as nails look. I will say its odd you changed so much but you left the stock levers on the bike.

I've looked at the Koso site but there's no instalation info. How hard was the conversion from the goofy stock unit? The RX-2 that you used is what Kawasaki should have installed from the get-go.

Holy crap that looks totally different!
The entire proportions of the bike are changed--the front looks lower, and more pitbull-ish at the same time.

Plan on putting bar-ends on? Whichever bike I'm on, not being able to see behind me always drives me crazy.
