Welcome to the list Keith.  The GenMars are a must have, good decision.  The
Muzzy adjustable ignition advancer made a huge difference for me as well.
Stainless front brake lines and a Murphy's fork brace and you'll be pretty
much there with modifications.  You got a real deal, I thought I had the
record when I got mine with 2500 miles for $3500 two years ago.  Cheers to

Hi all. A year ago I didn't even know that Kawasaki made a GPZ in the 90s. I

was looking for a replacement for my threadbare 84 Ninja 900. Something a 
little comfier with more low end grunt and the ZX14 was not in the budget. I

spent a year looking for a low mileage Connie but the few I found were way 
I saw a month old ad in a local weekly swap and sell it guide for a 95 GPZ 
with 4k on it. I spent a couple days searching the web and found and a handful of other sites. That weekend I went 
and saw the bike and was blown away by the condition of the bike. It looked 
like a brand new bike, other than a couple of silly Superman stickers (any 
tips on removing stickers?)
The guy had been listing it locally for a month and hadn't had any takers. I

bought it for $2000.00.
Compared to most of you guys on the list I am a casual rider at best but I 
put about 6000 miles on her last year just as she was. This year I plan on 
some upgrades, I already picked up some gen mars and a stage 1 dynojet kit, 
and have a zero gravity sport touring windscreen on its way.
I'll probably be driving you all nuts with NewB questions in the near 
future, but hey you let me join ;P
