Well I fitted my shock and carbon bits, front and rear fender, chain guard and front tank and key parts. Not sure how I feel about the carbon on the black edition because now it's not all the same. I'm going to leave it for now but not sure if it will stay, I may have just wasted a thousand dollars 馃槶

I have electronic Ohlins on my SC77. Suspension takes bumps much better than the NSC or other CBR1000RR models
Yeah, the roads around here are super rough and my aging back is starting to feel the jarring more than it used to. Getting soft, I guess. :)

My experience with the ohlins is that it's allot stiffer but it's so much more stable. I didn't realize the rear stock shock was soft till I replaced it. It's like going from a Cadillac to a Porsche. I feel myself holding onto the bars with a lighter grip now because the bike does what I want it to.

Bought a cheap license plate relocate from Amazon and modified it a bit and moved my plate, I like the cleaner back tire look but I didn鈥檛 want to spend the $300 on the brand name relocate kit, although I don鈥檛 have a light now on the plate I may have some issues at night, if I choose to stop.

Good looking pair.....How does the z900 compare to the CB?
The honda is definitely the sportier, bike. Its faster, corners and turns in quicker, stops faster. Pegs are higher on the Honda and has a better top end, the Kawi is tuned for down low/midrange. Both bikes are about the same for comfort and vibrations. Looks are subjective, but the overall quality and finish goes to the honda as well. But I do love my Kawi, good low down torque, feels really stable and planted in the corners, lots of aftermarket/mods available and I definitely get more attention on the Kawasaki than the Honda. If I could only have one bike I don't know which one it would be.
