Second the Syntace stem recommendation. The F109 or F119 are both fine stems, light (although not the lightest) and inexpensive. Syntace logos can be removed in seconds with a little acetone without damage to the finish.

How come your using nokons for the brakes at the front of the bike but not at the back or for the shifting? Also get some #06 orings and get rid of the cables beads a much cleaner solution, 3 per cable contact point works pretty good

Darn nice bike. I have a hankering for a z1 some day

I've had the Nokons from my previous bike and only some of the brake housing remained. I had to use what was readily available here in Lebanon, which is the Jagwire set for the shifting. Will look at the O-ring option you noted.

Thanks all for the comments :beerchug:

Nice One!
Hopefully this one will last longer than the previous 2.
Enjoy the L.A. riding and get up PCH to Malibu for some fun climbs.
