KLR and GPZ separated at BIRTH ?!?

So thanks to everyone for getting me up to speed on my "new '96" KLR. I was looking at the choke assembly on the KLR and glanced over at the '95 GPZ1100 sitting next to it and thought,....hmmmm, I bet those boys over at Kawasaki heavy industries probably reuse a bunch of stuff. Here is the proof!!!

John

PS: Yes the VRSCR is very jealous with two "vintage" Kawasaki's sharing the garage ;-)

Farkled probably WAY too much, but good 20' footer for sure. '96 KLR, '06 HD VROD, (girl friend hauler), '05 HD Electra-Glide, heh it's a HD and I'm old now ;-) and I'm proud of riding a 800+ pound bike at my age :-)

...hmmm, kinda looks like an '84 BPZ900 mill if I remember my Tom Cruise movies....
