    I just bought an 85 zl900 from California with Supertrapp slip ons, and the original take off mufflers and an extra gas tank for 200 bucks on Ebay. other than the exhaust it is untouched.. noone bid on it, i put in a bid at the end and won it. was a good day. It cost 598 to ship it to Ohio.

    It runs alright. Had it fired up. It was tagged and being ridden up until the point it was sold. Even if it didn't I couldn't really pass it up at that price. lots of great parts to be had.

    I like it quite a bit actually. One of the things I don't like about it is it puts off a lot of heat from the engine and is hot on the inside of my thighs. Other than that I like it a lot. The loping of the cams is a cool sound and it has Supertrapp slip ons on it.

    I've got one calling to me much the way the zl does. Negative handling reviews over exaggeration?

    I had a bone stock 1994 about 5 years ago. It was like riding a wickedly fast lawnmower. It didn't turn and was very uncomfortable. The motor sound from the V4 was like nothing I had ever heard before. Then I put Supertrapps on it and was twice as loud. I knew after a month that it wasn't going to be for me.
