    Grey Import Spares, $59 I think. It's the Baulis 250 one, you can get them from Kawasaki dealer. I believe the zzr/GPX is only different in paint.

    Does this mean that the chief has given up on the fzr? And turned to the high-spec'd ZXR? Hashtag team green!!!

    Might just be my own bias tainting the view

    Was it @TonyZXR or @Murdo that had the ZXR they went to sand back and found a rainbow of colours of paint layers? Mine (this one) is black over green and whatever other colours, too.

    It was Frankster's ZXR (white Lucky Strike drag bike) where the paint was so thick that I sandblasted it off before repainting.

    Just be careful with Boats.net... I found them cheap but they took forever to get parts that were 1 day from either Megazip or Impex and their freight charge was astronomical to Australia... just my experience is all...

    Also when searching for parts or even going to the local dealer , use part numbers .... alot of parts are common with not just other bike models of the same brand but snowmobiles, 4 wheelers, jet skis etc ... the big 4 Jap manufacturers make alot of stuff, so common parts across the board thru models and and other vehicles makes economical sense !

    Same with things like oil filters ... look how many applications use the HF303 ... including the later FZR250s and ZXR250 c model

    boats.net have been around a long time, i bought some Yamaha trail bike fender's from them 18 month's ago., plus have bought stuff off them year's ago too.
    Their price was the cheapest could find and same with their freight
    Was 1/3 of the price of Australian freight and my part's arrived in 7 day's too

    Thank you :) yes I have discovered this with my oil filters also. The same one fits both my scoots and my mates and I have found it cheapest from my dealer(but I think I get a good discount there) next cheapest was from England, even with postage was cheaper than a lot of local suppliers :)
