I found this today, lots of good pictures, would be a nice resource for someone tearing into an RZ350 motor for the first time.

Good source for used RZ/RD parts (or anything, for that matter, except hardly davidson):
http://www.motorcycle-parts.ca

Good guy, have bought parts from them on and off for the last 15 years or so.

No affiliation.

LOL ... hay T ... stayin out of trouble and dealing with the usual pitfalls of life. All those nice parts from england and elsewhere still waiting to be put on. I should be able to get 2006 GXR 600 (GSXR?) and up running gear for my USD forks at a decent price. But right now I can't even buy a thrill ... how you been?
