I smashed up my first bike in almost the exact same way. Went into a roundabout, ran over some loose gravel, lost the back end and hit the kerb on the outside of the roundabout. Bike came to an abrupt stop, I didnt - went through a fence shoulder first.

Damn, that's similar indeed. Where did you get your plastics and engine covers from?

Installed the tall ergo seat (thanks leeasam!) and rode for 5 hours. No way I would of been able to do that before. My original plan was to buy the Corbin next month but a good deal on the Kawi seat was worth trying. Also got to aggressively ride the Aprilia Tuono V4, that bike was a beast! I could tell a serious difference in the premium features of the suspension and Brembo brakes compared to the Z, loved the v4 engine, but still would rather have the z900 for daily riding and commuting.

Could someone show me a photo of the spring at the end of the throttle cable? There is no response when I pull the throttle. Trying to find the issue.

And verify if the frame difference on my photos is correct or bent.

Thank you gentlemen.
