State Borders are closed to the BS going on .... I canít not cross over to get it and they want $400 to ship. Not gonna happen at this point until the borders open up.
Oh well

Dang didnít know the state borders were closed too! My 2 cent for you my friend would be to wait for a new generation to come.a bigger upgrade. A completely new Z900

The Z has enough power and itís light. For the price we paid we can have fun adding stuff to it. Not enough evolution from the 2017 to the 2020 to justify changing.


Youíre good a wrapping, just do something crazy this winter with it

Yup VT is unless it is essential travel ( bike should count right ? )
I need to quarantine for 14 if I leave, I could work from home but not the same. The the positive is I could get a new bike for little cash out of pocket and all my mods would carry over. The crap going on will give me time to really decide what I want to do and not just jump in.

Ras, have you figured out what TYPE of bike you want?
As an example, when the z900 came out I initially hated the look but after watching every review on YouTube I decided it was what I was looking for. Then I started to like the way it looked.
It has just the right amount of power that I'm looking for and with a smooth delivery, which is important to me.
It is lightweight and easy to flick around.
At its price point I wasn't expecting a stellar suspension (and it didn't have one) but I had it modified for cheap and now it's perfect for me, especially with the new tires.

So what I'm saying is, you gotta figure out what you want out of a new bike and go for that. If Honda ever puts that 1100 in a naked and call it the cb1100F I'm going to demo it. (I had a cb500F but I just couldn't get used to 47 wheel hp. If it had 90 I'd still have it, that bike was a blast to ride once you hit the backroads).

Curious, which linkpipe did you buy for the 2020 model?
I have an SP engineering link pipe to fit my SP engineering slip on
Better to arrive 10 minutes late in this world than to arrive years too early in the next.

Hi guys, what are the exact differences between 2017 and 2020 versions?

I am sure these parts are different:
front headlight
indicators
dashboard
front fairings

Everything else is the same? For example, the brake and clutch levers?

The 2020 also has rider modes such as traction control.
I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure!

Yes I put the electronics into the dashboard in my mind lol

What about other parts? The clutch and brake levers, brake pump, brake discs are the same?
