Thaty was neat!


Oh boy, production values back then...the music was just terrible, lol!

So what’s the connection between the GPz and the Concours? It looks like they just added shaft drive and saddlebags.

Thanks Dan, I agree, that was neat.
JimBob, I think you almost got it.
From what I think I know,
- Larger fairing & windshield
- Higher bars
- Shaft drive
- 90 ccs more
- Shaft drive
- Slightly small carbs
- Different cams for more low speed torque (but less HP)

The 1000 cc Ninja that followed the 900 may share even more parts.
I think it's very similar to what they did taking the ZX1400 to the C14.

Forum Member 'TALON' documented fairing body work that fits both the GPZ900 and ZX1000
