The grips is one thing I am not happy about, too smooth and flat. With the hot weather and the sweat not comfortable at all. Has anybody found good replacement? Can I do on my own? How complicated is to replace the throtle grip?

Its really REALLY simple. You can cut the old ones off, if you arent going to reuse them. New ones slip on easily, as they are provided with some glue that will lube the handlebar area for installation...

Check this link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-SET-PAZZO-RACING-LEVERS-2007-2010-KAWASAKI-Z1000-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQitemZ150477372522QQptZMotorcyclesQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

I just bought a pair of these Pazzo levers, and I am loving them! And, they came with a free pair of ProGrips, made in Italy. Gel grips, nice and comfortable...and FREE! $15 value... I havent been able to find Pazzo levers ANYWHERE on the Net for under $179.99 - and you get free shipping and free grips from these guys. Worth it in my opinion!

Im very curious to hear your reviews of the grips as well.

I really like the looks, and I understand that they have gel grips over the aluminum...but I wonder how much vibration comes through the bars with aluminum tubes like that, as opposed to the plastic ones that are stock...

They look pretty sick though! What I really need is frame sliders first...
