It was an exciting day! Got my ZRX shocks and my rearsets. I had to clearance the hell out of the brake pedal to get it to work with this header, but it seems to work okay now. The shocks look like they are going to be perfectly sprung for me and this sporty. The bike is now officially done, for awhile anyway

S models were rigid mount, produced from '96-'03. As standard equipment, all had fully adjustable suspension front and rear, twin front disc brakes and a tachometer. From '98 on, they also had W grind cams (as fitted to modern rubbermounts), as opposed to the D grind cams fitted to other Sporties of the time; twin plugged "Lightning" cylinder heads, giving a higher compression ratio; twin spark, single fire (i.e. no wasted spark) ignition systems; a diagnostic take-off; and were more blacked out / had less chrome than other models.
