History I traded a project boat for this one. It was rough but it runs and looks good now after lots of work.
Bodywork
Naked bike. It's missing most of the original covers but I like the looks better.

Powertrain
600cc, 4 cylinder, 6 speed with a chain drive

Suspension
Upgraded the front forks with the FZ600 fork valve. I am waiting for tapered bearings to come in for the steering head and new fork seals.

Wheels and Tires
I run a Shinko tour master rear and a Pirelli front tire. Modern tires are superior to the originals. The tire sizes make it harder to find a matching combo at a reasonable price. The sad thing is the Shinko outlasted the Pirelli. The Pirelli actually cracked about 4" across.
