Part Interchange List

This will make a great sticky.................
Anyway This is on another forum I am apart of. There is alot of great info in this list for parts on other bikes that will work with our Z. If there are some others that you all might know of that is not on the list post it up and I will update the list.

I saw someone with a set of modified aftermarket ZX10 rearsets on their bike once. If you know who it was have them post up here on how they did it...


2005-2006 ZX636 gauges are a direct bolt-on. Main difference is that the RPM range will be different and the 636 does NOT have a fuel gauge.

Interesting list.
I am currently in the process of swapping a '07 zx6r front end onto my '03 Z1000. Its a little tricky, but I think its gonna come out bitchen! I'll be sure to add here what worked and the mods needed to make it happen. I can tell you now; the Z1000 wheel doesn't fit. Looking to put a zx6r front wheel. The hub is much wider

Pulled it off! Put a '05 zx6r front wheel in it. Fit like a glove.
Still have an issue with the brake line length. Currently using the stock master cylinder. This doesn't give the right kind of bite the radial mount calipers should be providing. I have the correct piece, but then there's more issues... The exit on the zx6r mc is on the bottom; the z's is out the front... The stock throttle cables intersect the brake line banjo bolt on the zx6r mc. Gonna have to switch to zx6r throttle assembly and starter switch, and different brake lines (different banjo bolt angles). I'm thinking about giving a '09 z1000 brake line a shot, so Galfer doesn't charge me for a custom job.
Now that I have this zx6r front wheel on; I'm thinking a '07 zx10r rear wheel might fit to get a matching pair of wheels. Then more issues arise again. Like axle diameter, rear caliper bracket, and general clearance.
But I'm so happy with the swap. Such a better ride, in corners, on the highway, etc. It's really even more of a comfortable ride now. I'm surprised more owners don't make this swap.

I changed the bars too to get rid of the GOLD bits. Renthal bar from a CRF450f. It's REALLY wide. I think I'm gonna try clip-ons or and the street bars from a Ducati

Now the rear wheel throws it all off... Zx10r rear, coming soon

Wondering if anyone has swapped for zx9 wheels yet. A lot of the companies that make aftermarket wheels don't make them for the Z, but they do make them for the zx9r... so if the wheels are the same, could we use our stock axles and rotors and such? I've got an '03, and I really want some March or BST wheels!

PS, part numbers are the same on one wheel and different ob the other. If I remember right, the front is different in the second half of the number or something.

2003 Z1000 Full muzzy Ti system, PCIII, K&N, +3 rear Vortex, speedo healer, dagger levers, pluig taller screen, anodized this and that, it's never going to end is it...

I have a 2003 Z1000 with a 2004 ZX10-R instrument cluster, lower rear shock mount and ECU. I have done other mods but nothing too obvious..... well I did modify the exhaust, I hated the stock exhaust note... or lack thereof..... so i ground the spot welds on the end caps of the stock exhaust and cut 10" out of the mufflers... this is all the muffler portion. I then tack welded the end caps back in place. Now not only does my girlfriend not have to worry about burning her legs on those massive pipes but it now sounds like the spawn of hell is trapped in my engine and angry. Ill post some of the pics I have from before i did the exhaust mod.

Here is a link to the pics.... having problems embedding.....

2003 Orange/Black Z1000
Yes its fast, the tennis elbow in both my arms from hanging on attests to it.

Anyone seen/done the 9r 4into1 header. Ivans pp says that stock 4-1 pipe is a very good piece of work. After you cut the collector, will the stock midpipe/can bolt to rear z1000's subframe??
