same engine and electronics as the modern xr/crf's but more of a heavy duty frame and suspension IMO. I love my Z, and wouldn't trade it for a CRF in most cases. These things are getting harder to find with age, so if interested, snag one before the prices get even higher.

the same IMO. I like the larger seat for comfort reasons. Big bar kit can be "built" for less than $75 bucks. I'll do a writeup sometime soon if i can get my garage cleaned up

I probably have a set sitting on my workbench, unopened. also have a set of Tag bars to bring the bars up, you'll need clamps though. I bought a set of Honda 300ex clamps and polished them to a nice new shine.

chain and sprockets

handle bar clamps so you can replace the "fixed position" handlebars with an aftermarket set without buying a $150 upper clamp assembly.

just put the tire in a vice if you have one. If not, split the wheel and cut the old bead off the wheel, they're usually rusted in place. If you need a set of bars locally hit me up. I have a set of red tag bars that are brand new that I'll let go for $35. I also have a brand new set of tires(don't think i have tubes though), chinese billet foot pegs, neon green fuel line, new grips, pre-oiled aftermarket air filter(to use in the stock airbox), and other odds and ends. You could call Sunny's Motorsports(281-998-8168) tomorrow(Turesday) and he can get you everything you need.
