I’m pulling the trigger on a cheapie and will report my findings here. Thanks for the input, gentlemen!

If I had a 400, I’d be your buyer  :burnout:

I don’t know, but it seems like a reasonable assumption. If I’m accelerating hard I probably won’t be looking at the speedometer, though! Another idea is an app for my phone and three phone holders: one for each bike. I’m taking the damn phone with me anyway, right?

I would gladly spend your money on that! Seems well done with some interesting mods; if you like it, we will support your decision  :thumbs:

 Are the cheap GPS speedos worth messing with? I really like a $300 unit from speedhut, but I have three projects in the works. As much as I would like to send the fine folks at speedhut a Grover, the $60 jobbies have my attention. Beyond "cheap stuff ain't good, and good stuff ain't cheap", any experience out there?

Aftermarket, baby! And they are cool as shit! Lots of big names rode and won road races and flat track on those in the 70s, maybe into the 80s. Great find, hang on to it  :bacon:

Good eye, Tim. I snagged that piece of bracket from under the cutoff saw at work. I was going to use an old Homelite saw bar for the other side, but the evolution of the rear pipe hangers may have nixed that.

I'm supposed to be doing other things today. Right side mocked in plywood:



Can you tell that the left side is 1/2" lower? Me neither. Hooray for eyeball engineering  :cheerleader:



I'll work on getting a seat on there and see which side I like better. I read somewhere about making your worst mistakes in cardboard (wood, in this case).

No fewer than 3 left footpeg assemblies in the FZ stash, but not a single right! eBay to the rescue. Nissin master cylinder from a quad, probably a YFZ450, slots in nicely. The right side bracket will extend upward and rearward to accommodate the master cylinder. Heel guards are kinda neat, but I don't think I'll bother with them, at least partly because I have 2 rights and no left!

Turned the LC's left footpeg bracelet from plywood to steel, and no, that isn't Kawasaki green. I'll try to keep the agricultural contributions to a minimum...

Great information; I thought I was seeing things in the barn, but the RD350LC shift drum IS shorter than the RZ/Banshee item, and for a reason. Thanks EE  :like:

Someone needs a single-sided swingarm project! This thing is only $75! Not mine.
