What to Expect

PZ500 1987 on, 499cc w/c DOHC twin, 60hp 125mph 55mpg 375lb Excellent twin but pre ’94 bikes had 16” front wheel that could flip away on worn OE rubber (Avons or Michelins better). Neglect of oil changes can ruin cams by 20k but usually runs to 55k before camchain goes. Finish and suspension on early bikes go off after a couple of years.
