Dang didnít know the state borders were closed too!

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.

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

Curious, which linkpipe did you buy for the 2020 model?

I'll put my view as I traded in a 2019 for a 2020.I am now semi retired and hopefully this year I will give up work and retire a couple of years  early and move to our house in Spain full time.So for longer term  financial reasons  I have emptied my garage of  a Z1000SX a Triumph Street Triple 765 RS and have kept  one the Z900. The Z900 being a bike I could keep for the rest of time although it was close between the Triumph and the Kwak from a cost point  I put £1500 into getting the new bike and the 2019 cost me £500 in depreciation over a year .Although to be fair  there are not many new parts on the 2020 it is more up to date electronics than the gen 1 model  but not a big change.One advantage was that most after market parts swap straight over to 2020 model only the exhaust was a slight change but a new link pipe sorted that out.This bike will still need money spent on it for suspension upgrades which would have been spent on 2019 bike anyway.I have never had a bike for longer than 2 years and at time 2 or 3 in the garage  since I was 17 some 46 years ago now I have always bought what I want rightly or wrongly so if you want a new 2020 bike go buy one it will be like a new bike but a familiar one.Its your money spend it how you want.

Personally, I think the Z900 gen 1 style more attractive, beside the riding modes and new instrument, they are almost the same; trading the gen 1 to gen 2 might be not worthy.

Orange box = It's an 8mm so the general rule is about 14ft-lbs. But just know, you will not be able to use a torque wrench on it because of what is in the way (it will make sense when you do it). Just use BLUE loctite and tighten it with a regular allen wrench.
Yellow box = 108nm is 80 ft-lbs  :008: And yes, that's the proper torque.
Blue box = This isn't actually torqued. You use it to adjust the fore-n-aft. Once the chain has proper slack, just tighten the large axle nut. The adjuster has notches and clicks so it will not back out or become loose!!!!

ps. Don't over think this. The only torque that matters is the axle nut. Use grease on the nut threads and washer to help you get proper torque. Don't recommend doing it dry.

I don't know what these are called so my search results didn't come up with much

Here's my diagram



Orange box  - ??

Yellow box - The Rear axle Nut (108 nm or 80 ft-lbs)

Blue box with the two screws - ??

Thank you for any assistance!

Maybe wait till next year and look for a used KTM 890. It's body panels are like a dirt bike (flimsy and lacks detail) but that MC looks so much fun to throw around. Don't know about you but I'm more interested in a lighter machine and not more power. Sure the Z-H2 would be "fun" but there is something about throwing a light machine around VS. having more horsepower can't compare.

BTW: I will predict Kawi will make some really nice changes for 2022. If they do, imagine getting a new Z900 next year and 10-11 months later they come out with the Z900RRRRR+R
