In truth an older photo (2006), not too long after I'd been given this 1992 KB100RTZ. Paint/chrome here original. I extended the swingarm 2 inches, and shockers were re-fitted on adjustable mounts - providing a ride much more plush (I could bear the original setup for about ten minutes of riding), with much better high-speed stability as well. Rear mudguard was removed to allow for the greater travel it now enjoyed, and seatpan also modded for that reason. Plans for long tours dictated that seat padding be enhanced a bit. Took it in this form to Ladakh (incl. Zanskar beyond Paddum), through Lahaul and Pattan up over Sach Pass to Chamba / Dalhousie / Dharamsala and back to Manali. Also rode from here across Uttarkhand into Western Nepal on it. Nowadays it is looking much worse for the wear after all the travel, and after a friend wrecked it (I feel more sorry for him, he broke his leg and was in a cast for nine weeks); Despite the badly dented tank, I'd fit still had a quiet, tight, freshly rebuilt engine that ran just beautifully till sitting unused over a winter a couple years back, when some water leeched down inside the throttle cable, through the carb (common issue), and into the crankcase, rusting up the crank bearings. Awaiting a complete rebuild, and for now sadly a bit of a basket-case.
Fortunately my KB125RTZ (modified cafe-racer) is running just great - will post pics of that soon if possible.
