That's the same line just I used on my wife to buy my ZR! I might let her ride it a few times to keep up the illusion that it's hers.;)

I put 5500 on a Zr 500 and never replaced any of those components. It needed new shocks after probably 2500 miles, but that was only on account of normal wear and use.

Can you rebuild the shocks on a ZR? If you can, is it worthwhile or should you just replace them?

Thanks, Caz. That's a heck of alot cheaper option than buying new ones. Is it a do-it-yerself or take it to the pros project?
