They sell older models but registered on the date of sale. You can tell by looking at the front brakes does it have radial callipers. Is it digit 10 on the frame number? most of them were made in 08 but some were made 2011 ish and they have different brakes and other things.

Hi buddy ,
From my experience .. get forks and rear shock updated personal preference of course .
Yes check the Z25 is ok
Clean the side stand switch as it can play up when your on the gas cutting the power off many times in a day . Solution is to stretch the tiny internal spring .

One big one for me was open up the starter motor to inspect the brushes and replace anyway £30 would of saved me £450 for a replacement ECU .
Get the best battery you can afford as well.
Make sure you've got a good map loaded onto the ECU .
Also keep that stepper motor clean as it will do your head in if it's not .
Iridium plugs are also a good idea..
There must be more things I've left out ..

So took digital display out , had it taken apart an re soderd as some had corrosion , before took it apart, if the bike was running an i plugged the dash in the display would all work fine , milage ,petrol , temp gauge, rev counter , but soon as turn off power it won't work , has power as it lights up but displays stop working , so had it looked at an like i said re soderd most spots , but same problem works if i plug it in when bike running but won't when engine an power is off , any ideas ? bit of a mare but must persevere

checked everything out all wiring looks ok , even had the tank off to check 3pin connector , so i guess it must be a fault in the clocks , they work fine when i plug them in when bikes running but soon as turn off , the instrument panels dont work , indicators an lights still register so has power just dials speedo rev counter an petrol gauge won't show up so thinking am gonna have to get another clock unit .

there are two 12V connections to the dash. One permanent, the other switched. The switched one obviously works. Check the other one.
Both have power , but got fed up with not using the bike so put it all back together new screen as it had a replacement one which i didn't like , an decided just to use without clocks working anyway sat the bike out in the sun today was gone go for a blast when had a job come through so went of to do that came back 2hrs later an noticed the tiny lights were on where i left it in park key mode with strearing lock on , bike wouldn't start as battery was out of puff but the clocks all came back to life ??? for a few seconds it didn't reg da ! as was pissed of that battery was flat , but all the clocks were working without the bike running ? so I've thought about it an just maybe the heat has dried out any electrical problems even thou I've had the tank off checked every cable plug i can find ! so took battery off an charging it up an will refit it Wednesday im of fishing tomorrow so keeping my fingers crossed it will all work !(y)

Ta Da the latest on the no go clocks ! disconnected the second mains cable to battery an the clocks work ! its the red one that loops down under the fuse holder , this must have something to do with the alternator ? as flashes up Bae and oil on dash , anyway its progress and pretty soon its gone all make sense LOL , tested output and its not overcharging so im investigating an update soon .
