In the river? No, that's for boats!
So, what's all this then about a GPz under water?
These are 30-so years old, so stuff is going to go wrong unless restoration is done.
I have 2 ZX550A models from '86. and am planning a 2013 UK trip through England, Scotland, N. Ireland and Wales, stopping off to meet various members of the GPz 550 forum whom I'm in touch with - my brother riding bike nr. 2.
So far in prep for this trip I have rebuilt one motor entirely, replaced 5 brake discs with pads, rebuilt 5 brake calipers, rebuilt both front ends with steering head bearings, new springs, fork oil and dust seals and rebuilt the masters, rewired with ngk racing HT leads and caps, Iridium plugs, rebuilt 2 carb banks, and installed stage 3 FactoryPro kit in the one, one on order, with Keihin CV30 semi flat-slide carbs, pod filters, 4-1 pipes 2 new rear tyres, one seat recovered, all cables greased up and serviced with Motion-Pro kit, ZR550 oil cooler to be installed on the one (just for fun) K&N mini filters installed on Motor breather holes, new batteries... and the list goes on.
When you do this sort of restoration and servicing, the old bikes don't give problems, and then if they do, you have a quick idea how to fix them :)
So, who here has a GPz 550 who wants to join up with us for some of this trip?? We are travelling from Denmark, collecting a GPz-er from Holland, down through the tunnel, and into UK.
