Hey folks - new member in the ATL metro. Purchased a new-to-me `20 Z900 just a few weeks ago and am in LOVE!

He does very nice work.
Thereís no need of super high end suspension components unless you have the skills to exploit them. Few have those skills. Some do but not me, and Iím not alone.

Well...I'm certainly not in the knee-dragger category nor do I want a bike set-up for that.   My explicit instructions were that I ride on the street and mostly at sane speeds.   I have no desire to trade off my 95% use for a 5% desire although I am hoping to do one track event this year.   It is more of a safety/skills class than a "how fast can I go" class.   

Just to put this in easy-to-understand terms with units that were used to start this thread. 

Stock OEM Fork Spring Rate:   0.9 kg/mm
Stock OEM Shock Spring Rate:   500-550 kg/mm (was not confirmed by Jamie so this info is based upon the earlier presented info)

I figured I'd update the info here because I referenced this for getting my suspension work done.

The 2017-2019 OEM fork spring rate is actually around 0.9 kg/mm.     It was actually about perfect for my weight (162 lbs. without gear).   

Jamie did change my rear spring to a 650 lb/in and re-valved both front and rear along with swapping out my bent fork tubes for a very reasonable price.   

Great service..... I'll update my impressions once I'm riding again.

Agree follow the wires. If I remember correctly the shop manual that I used from on line showed the wrong one.
I appreciate it guys. I saw conflicting things till I asked here. Thanks for clearing up the confusion!

Follow the wire out of the sensor up right side, 4 clips hold it in place.
Plugs in behind the airbox.


Sweet thanks!
