I can see the problems that may arise, wouldn't want to do that either lol!

Kidding aside, I'd love to see her when she is ready. I'm a 1st Gen lover from waaay back.

Both great looking machines, even if one of your girlies is naked.

Hopefully she is not that bad of a hoe and won't throw me off in my maiden session on her, lol.

Hi again guys, it appears that i should be heading to Broadford next Friday and i am hoping in a chill day to get to know the bike and introduce myself to this crazy bitch.
The big question mark are the forks, which appear to be setup for a bigger guy than i am, but we'll see how we go.
Also, in terms of rotors and pads what do you guys suggest? Happy to get spacers to switch to 320mm if there is improvement.

Gen1 for the win! Welcome to the forum!

Stock rotors are pretty decent for the Gen1. You already did the caliper swap from a ZX14 and that is the main mod that really improves braking. I also did a Brembo master cylinder which did wonders. I had my forks done with some Ohlins springs and some other bits for my weight. Seems you might just need to swap out the springs for a lighter setup. Are you running a stock rear shock? When I swapped mine out for a Penske it made a whole world of difference as well.

Hope you have a blast and you enjoy your Gen1!

I DON"T HAZ ANY SNYDER PROBLEMS
