Finishing up the ZX600 project and starting on the GPz550. Need to save some $$$ ;)

Just bought a thermostat from Kawi for my '86 ZX600R $32.00 Yikes!

There has to be an equivalent thermostat at an auto parts store that would be cheaper.

If you find inexpensive parts for things that should be common and cheap, post here.

I'll start, Coolant fill cap, fits early ZX600's and probably many others:

Stant #11227 Swiv-El Radiator cap. 13 lb.

About $3 at any auto parts store. Stock is 15 lbs. Stant has a 16lb also, I went with the 13 as I have had head leaks. Works fine, fits perfect.

I guess the thread could be for aftermarket moto parts also.

I have picked up petcock and carb kits of ebay from "siriusconinc". Was K&S brand and good price. The sent me the right part #, but the parts inside were completely wrong. Sent me another free and did not even ask for the other back.

Fan switch/sender: $78 from kawi. I drilled out the sender and JB-welded a $8 part from Digikey inside the shell. Works great.
