Amazing how much a proper fairing can do for the look of a bike.

sorry

Okay, trying to figure out what year of Z to get, don't mean to start like an oil discussion, but if there is a year that I should be aware of as far as performance, engine mods, maintenance?

Let me know what year to look for...

Just make sure you get a blue one, they're the fastest.




But seriously, I think it's '02 and later S models that have the improved suspension but I could be off on the year.

As long as it's low mileage, with good records of TLC also if it comes with mods that's a plus, it'll save u time & $$$. By mods i mean rejeted with 3*3 air box mod, performance muffler, engine guards/hand guards rear rack, better handlebars, bigger tank, xtra instruments on ur cockpit, good tires, upgrade suspension is a must. If ur goal is more off-rd riding then aim for E model, you'll like it.

Don't get hung up on a bike with mods... the more its been modded, the harder its been ridden (general rule of thumb).

Get the newest, lowest milage bike you can within your budget.

I got an almost stock 06 with 5k mi, for $3k USD last year.
