Since I was the only New Yorker at the Fandango, it must be me. You had me 
scared for minute thinking I was drinking something good for me. It's not 
orange juice, it's Gatorade. That's just the stock swingarm painted silver. 
The remote adjuster is the compression adjuster of the ZX9r shock ('94 to 
'97 only) that is a bolt in on the GPZ. the rear brake and rear wheel are 
from a ZX11D and requires machining of sprocket mounting surface of the 
drive hub and sinking the sprocket mounting studs deeper into the drive hub 
as well. It allows me to run a 180 section rear tire on a proper 5 1/2" wide 
rear wheel.
