Hi everyone, I'm located in Melbourne and I currently ride a 05 Z1000.
I've had a few different bikes in the past; 954 Fireblade, TRX 850, XT 660, KTM 530, CBR 1100 Blackbird, XVS 1100, GSF 1200S and a few others along the way.
Currently in the process of changing the colour from Titanium to Blue.
I bought the bike as a project, it was in very poor condition and I've spent many hours working on the bike, along with a few dollars as well.....lol

I'm currently chasing a pair of forks for the bike if anyone knows of anyone who wants to sell some. The forks on the bike have corrosion pitting on the chrome and after I had them rebuilt they are leaking after 3 months of being on the bike.
I bought a set from Ebay but they got lost by Australia Post (very Handy NOT!!!)

Anyway if anyone could be of some help it would be much appreciated.
Also looking at ways to clean the outside of the throttle body as it has that white powdery film all over it.

Cheers
Marcus

The Z1000 forks only have one active fork and the other is just a spring, so you are better off putting a set of ZX6 forks in it.

Yeah I know that, but I can't justify the cost of replacing the whole front end really.
