    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for RZ350 websites. Doing some research on the Kenny Roberts Edition RZ350s. Does anyone know of any quality, informative sites?

    Thanks.

    I parted out a RZ a few years back. One of the best sites I found was www.rzrd500.com. They have a sections for 350's and 500's. Good luck on the search and nice choice in bikes.

    I own #113 of the first year production run, 1984 It has Toomey pipes, Boysen 2 piece reeds, cut head and a K&N filter kit (BIG ole filter, no stock airbox) and a Dynojet kit. I rocks! It has 9,457 miles so far ;f . It really makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck when the revs get up there. It sounds like a GP bike. Looks like one too.

    I waited almost 3mos for it to come. The seral # is xx223. It was one of the first ones in the country. I put Michelin Hi-Sports on it also (100x90 and 130x80) what a difference they made. The solo seat makes it even more GP looking. It's pretty wierd to see people come running out of their houses when I drive by, but it sounds so much like a GP bike it scares people. A Policeman once stopped me and asked me why I was stupid enough to ride a race bike on the street, and was in the process of calling for a tow truck till I showed him the Reg and Ins. cards. He was mortified that it was legal. It snorts, bucks, and smells awesome to me.

    WERA49, I used to live not far from Bridgehampton. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. I once saw an RZ500 there. The only one I was lucky enough to spy in person. Do the Power Valves cycle like the 350's? They are pretty high tech for an '84 bike. It catches everyones ear.
