Skid,

You are in for a white knuckle ride with that Z... You may have to re-name yourself to BadassZ or something like that on this board. Nice sled.

Like moving a chunk of granite by hand! Talk about a nut buster! It's also a PIG on fuel! Maybe 8 mpg max on a good day.

The only difference between the 1998 and 1999 is the pipes. The 1998's have the "center dump" pipes that like to make HP when HOT. The 1999's have more normal end dump pipes. Jetting is slightly different due to the pipes, as is the clutching.

Other than that, the graphics are slightly different. Chassis and rear suspensions are the same. Front suspension changed slightly -- from DSA to ADSA, but I don't know if you'll ever notice the difference.
