That has to be one of the cleanest ZX chassis sleds I've seen in a long time.

Looks awesome! I love the old iron!

Gave a little "bump" to the ideas I have filed away in the back of my mind....

So I've decided after looking into it further... I'm just going to run a 1997 670 full sled harness and not worry about the stator wattage and run one headlight... I'm not planning on running after dark anyways...

Really interested in the seat info, can you elaborate on what it took to make it work with that tank, and chassis? Is it the stock ZX tank?

Yeah it's a stock 1999 mxz 600 tank... The seat took a bit of work... Bought it used... Took the seat cover off... Removed the foam... Took the plastic frame and heated it up over a torch... Till soft... The bent it to fit the tank... Then while still warm ran outside and stuck it in the snow to cool it off. To lock in the new shape... Then cut the foam to fit the new bend... Reattached seat cover... Then built my own frame to support the seat...
