Stage 1 represents the Suspension, Handling, and minor performance gains.
Most of the enhancements are listed in my signature, but there are more to come. This quad should be completely assembled by the End of the Week.
The Black Plastic Cover replaces the Headlights. I custom made it from a flat piece of plastic. I created a Head Light Template then I outlined it on the Plastic. I then cut the top and bottom angles out. Then I used a Torch on the under side to curve the Plastic and bend it down the Sides to Mount to the Factory Fender.
Needless to say the Cover was very time consuming to make(4 hours), but the finished product looks great and is very sturdy. I will be place a white number background on it when it is done.
I live in Maryland, and I race in District 6 &7 and GNCC.
yes, your z is very sweet !! do u ever race district 13? your light cover is very trick, i like it alot, i'm either gonna make a light cover out of aluminum or i was thinkin of removing the lights and replaceing it with that chicken wire stuff that u can buy from autozone, that way u can get more air to the radiator and its a cool billet look too. what do u think?
The chicken wire idea would work. It would be fairly easy to work with and you could staple it to your plastic underneath. It would also improve airflow for cooling. The only reason I went solid is for my number plate.
Z400 Stage 1 is now Complete. The engine, carb, steering stem, handlebars, electrics will be next. It should be ready for its first Race in Van Etton, NY on August 25th. I will be posting a new subject with todays riding story.
