If you guys don't mind me asking, how much did you get for them? In approx USD.
My nephew needed tires and I wouldn't give them to him. It wasn't the money reason. I offered mine for free only to z900 owners because they know what they're getting.

So just picked up bike with heavier springs, valving and oil done in the front end. Im 90-95kgs went up to .95 and some valving magic.

Also dropped the forks through the trees slightly for some front end rake and adjusted the rear preload 3 mm and rebound a bit quicker to keep up with front

Wow what a difference !! Best $450 spent ever. Rear shock is fine for my weight just needs some valving done $250 which Ill do next

Street setup bike totally compliant on bumps, doesnt crash at all and can control under breaking.

Next step get some flatter Widder bars :)

Hey yeah good one, do you have any info on the valves they put in? I am doing the K-Teck SSK valve kit this week sometime. Was it something like that or did the guy do his own thing and build his own stuff. You will want to do the rear for sure now, it will be unavoidable. Changing bars is a great idea that has to be done as well IMO.
Keep us informed.
