    I was wondering how many of our bikes have been modified from the original.

    I'm desperately trying to keep my ZL1000 absolutely stock (difficult these days with parts becoming scarce) but I know that quite a few others have done so many mods that they are becoming unrecognisable as an Eliminator, not that there's anything fundamentally wrong with that.

    Sometimes I feel I'm the only one with an original bike

    So....Come on guys.........Who likes 'em straight and who's bike is now a Yamkawsuki

    Not that parts were unavailable, I just wanted to 'amp up' the performance a little bit, I will have Supertrapp exhaust, stage 3 with pods, prolly Dyna ignition (for now adjustable advance), new paint, new (re-covered) seat, Spiegler brake lines, different turn signals, all LED lights (if possible), Progressive suspension front and rear, and eventually....Fuel Injection....I also am going to try to widen a stock tank for extra runs down the strip between re-fills...But all things considered, it will be a modified stock appearance, but will still maintain the unmistakeable ZL look and feel...
    I love the stock bikes, in fact my parts went to stock restoration....2 of them actually, so now there are 2 stock ZL's to my 1 modified....A fair trade...

    I am shooting for absolute stock, but parts are hard to find, (Rad shroud and frame plastic), so best I can hope for this year is "Stock Apearing"
    but stock or not I have the best seat...........hahahahahahaha

    Stock is my goal

    My Scoot is close, with parts so difficult to come by maybe it will never be 100% stock but it won't be from lack of wanting or trying. My seats still good to go but I wouldn't consider a re-covered seat as being a non-stock bike Rick.

    Stock, i have made some modifications to my other 900, but have all the original parts left to put them back when needed.

    In my opinion it is hard to make the 900 look better than what it looks on
    stock :D

    The only thing at the moment that isn't stock on mine is dials and light, or in my case dial and lights. I'll post pics soon. You can't blame in on me though, it was all done before I got the bike.

    I will probably be getting a custom exhaust soon as mine is on the way out. Luckily a friend of mine has welded all the holes up for now.

    so not only am I the only one with a green n gold ELI it seems I'm the only one with a completely stock bike - however can't wait to change the airbox for the K&N filters simply cos they look cool. pictures of Markzl900's bike inspired me plus I remember the sound it used to make on my very old 1275gt - sweet
    :D

    Modified

    Hi Guys,
    Just about everything has been modified on my bike, Just replaced the complete exhaust system.
    [​IMG]
    The brackets are just temporary; they will be replaced in the near future.

    Cheers
