Hey all,

Most current rider is a '97 zx7r (only aftermarket is a yoshimura RS-3) but I still have my first street bike...an '81 KX550 that I am slowly converting over to a street cafe that can double as a track day bike in a pinch. Cashed in my 401k and got a bridgeport, Monarch lathe, shear, brake, MIG, etc and went to town moding the 550!

Copied the zx7's clip-ons for the 550, had to cut down the stock headlight brackets to fit.

Rearsets from scratch... removed the passenger pegs.

Vented the rear drum

Lightened the clutch cover

Full Dyna electronic ignition and hypo coils

Stage 3 carb kit

my own turned velocity stacks , airbox removed

fab'd stainless steel cannister for the back of the MAC 4-1 header

a monarch 10ee?

I'm a model maker by trade. if my 401k was worth enough, I would cash it out to buy myself some decent equipment. but alas, it is not.

welcome to the forum. I have a poor deprived 82 kz550gpz. I blew piston 2 through the front of the block a few years ago, and have decided to build a cool gsxr powered drag bike out of it. I'll put it together some day.
