Fais,
He is in Poland, Just around the corner from Knoxville by way of the Atlantic ocean!   :-[
Matt

I am curious to see how he repairs the Area P header and collector in order to use the full flash that it currently has in the ECU..

Here are some new photos. Later on I will put some more photos because I can not do it at one time.
I changed fork cylinder-set, spring-front, fork spacer, etc. from another ZG. Put new rear tyre Angel GT. During balancing it turned out that the brake disc is curved in one place. I managed to repair that small inflection. Later on I will write other things which I made. I would like to thank as well to my friends Uhma and his mechanik team for sharing his garage, tools and advicing in doubt
Matt
According to Area P. I spoke to few mechaniks and thay advised me not to touch it, not to worsen the situation, especially it is not so bad. I did all plastic fit and now evrything fits like a glove. Now I will have to do paint job.
Therefor I will have to disassemble all plastics and then I will have more time to think about that issue.

Are you getting a new bag or refinishing that one?
Looks like it is coming along.  How much did you pay for it?

smithr1,
He paid about 3300.00$ for it from Copart Insurance auctions here in DC. Then they lost the FOB, then they damaged the bike much further than it was. It got shipped to Poland and was damaged even further during transport! Hard to believe it looks that good now after all it has been through. Luckily I was able to send him the spare key fob.
Matt
I considered buying it back from the insurance but I would have been left with no money and a busted bike after the payoff and buyback was done. I took the payout and added some (a good bit of), cash and got my '15 free and clear now.

Do you mean side bag assy? If yes. I have them I did not put them to bike on the photo because it was just testing drive. They are waiting for paint job with all plastics. I ordered as well oryginal Kawasaki central bag. I polished windshield, meter and headlight. I wraped with foil headlight.

That is true what Matt said. I received bike which was not the same that I saw on coppart. Many details which are valuable was stolen like glove box with FOB, mirror and some other things which could not be damaged during accident was missing. I am sure that in that condition It would cost not 3300$ but something around 2000$

Were the forks the only structural damage?  I would think a lot of the plastic could be damaged and still be worth $3k

Hi,
        Good job!!! :beerchug:

Nice Scooter!!! :great:
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.” -Samuel Adams

I am from Warsaw in Poland but very often I am in Lviv Ukraine, every two weeks. Łomża is 150 km from Warsaw. Why are you asking? Are you going to visit Łomża soon?
