May be interested in those fork tubes when I get home. Currently riding my KZ400 from Lake Michigan home to New Orleans.

This is a great little bike! I highly recommend buying one if you find one for the right price. Extremely nimble, quick, easy to handle. Feels as light as a bicycle compared to the r1100gs.

One word: fun!

Anyone make new stators for these bikes?

Looking at the web info, I think I want a 1980 KZ440b, drum brakes, 6 speed trans, tach, better engine (oil leaks).

There is a bad stator 1975 kz400 for $900.00 not so close to me...

Check the insurance rates in your state. When I lived in BC the cut off for cheap insurance was 400cc. The 440 would have cost me an extra $200 per year.

I do not care about that, and have had bikes up to 1200cc's with full coverage.
Compared to a car, insurance for most bikes is very cheap!

My bad - I had the KZ440 on the brain. Correct link for the KZ400 is http://ricksmotorsportelectrics.com/part/20-K103/NzVLYXdLWjQwMERzdGFuZGFyZA====
Note they need your core to rebuild.
