    Kawasaki KZ750B2 or what's left of her :-)

    Two little item's......

    One is that the tank only holds 6.50 ltrs max of fuel so may well need a OE replacement tank ( just asking in case anyone has one ) just so I can hit a few cafe's in North Wales - and get home again !!

    Other item is where would you attach the mirrors ? I could go traditional with a set of funky shaped jobbies on the 7/8 inch bars..or could underslung a pair of small circular type one's ( don't want bar end mirrors as bar's are wide enough as it is ! ). If I have the one mirror, does it have to be mounted on the offside ( like a car etc ) or can I just have the one on the nearside? No indicators and she is fed by a mini ( car ) SU carb., so not built for speed . Cannot find any underslung handlebar mounted small black mirrors on Eblag

    Under slung mirror black on rhs for me, since thats where the cars / bikes will come from.

    Small carb so how far will the 6.5 lits get you?, there is plenty of fuel in Eastham/ Queensferry/ Corwen/ Llangollen, just buy it when you see it! Any room for emergency 3 lits or so in the tailpiece?

    Ps think of the green shield stamps, no wait a minute do they still do them?

    Enjoy
