Great build so far. I have a 2009 version and the more I view your thread, the more I want to tinker with the bike.

Im glad you like it. It was a thing that sat on my mind for many years and only seemed to be resolved when i started working on it. I can fix it for you (and others) though by saying i could have easily bought a better bike off the shelf for much less than i spent here. :)

I wrestled with the same thought before realizing I was never getting rid of this bike, just adding to the stable if anything. So, I started creating the bike I want and will most likely never get rid of. Great platform for either the novice or expert mechanic.

Exactly. This thing is part of my history. Even my better half says I should never sell it.

The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed that I alternated a couple of times between a z1000sx (ninja 1000 2012) and the z1000r 2017 front master cylinder. One of them has the black rizoma integrated reservoir and the other is the traditional white pee cup :)

The reason is i cant seem to get the 1000r master cylinder to bleed properly. Decided to get a rebuild kit from Kawasaki. I can find the equivalent part elsewhere aftermarket but for the small difference in price id prefer the peace of mind.

Master cylinder here

Piston kit here
