It's right side up. I put in a supposedly brighter lamp, have adjusted it but it is still vague. Maybe I'm so used to round headlights that it's just me. Will look into an 80-100 and see what happens.

btw--the zx-6 on the left looks pissed. was the kz holding him up?
Thanks for the link! The wiring harnesses on these things are mess in the first place. They used the same ones for a 550 as they did for the 1000's. Mystery wires everywhere.......

And ZX-10 wasn't pissed, just kinda cold that day and his tires weren't gripping very well.

It's an '06. Bought a yellow one, but it didn't negotiate a curve within 40 hours of ownership, so he got a green one. His signature line is "yellow don't corner well".

And green is a good color to bleed.

I am looking at getting a ZRX and have a question. Can you get hard bags & mounts for it here in the US (like GIVI)? If so who sells them?

Yep. Just pop on over to zrxoa.org forums and navigate your way to the bags and luggage section. Lots of info there.

I recently spotted a blue one with soft bags that looked really nice, and the color was almost a perfect match for the bike. Didn't get a chance to see whose they were, though.

Does Muzzy still make the Ti header? If so that would look sweet.

I've wanted one of these since I first laid eyes on them. Finally, in about two weeks, I am joining your ranks.
