What size rear wheel are you running on your Z1??? Is it an 16" or 18" wheel?
The bike has a full dyna ignition already, but I agree with you on the discs, they're super heavy. I've heard the argument that the dual disc adds more weight than stopping power, and you're better off with just one disc... I'm not sure where I stand on that discussion though lol.Z motors are pretty simple and easy to do top end work on. Beefy and as simple as shit.
I doubt 29.0 mm smoothbores would give you much bang for the bucks, without more radical cams+race valve springs and a pro dyno tune.
Dyna coils, leads, caps and ignition system would give it a good boost.
If you are serious, you should get the gearbox undercut, before the dogs and slots get all worn.
Get the discs professionally drilled with tiny holes, those stockers must weigh a ton.
The full Rickman fairing looks great, far better than on the Rickman IMHO.
The bike looks great.

I say unless you are on a racetrack or toting big momma around on vacation highway, the single disc would work better all round. I'd always trade a bit less braking power for less unsprung weight, any day.The bike has a full dyna ignition already, but I agree with you on the discs, they're super heavy.

I'm using this one:Why not just get the shock mounts on the swing arm moved forward?
As far as stopping power, what master cylinder are you using? The factory bore ratio is way off from what a modern bike would use, and with a smaller than stock MC piston the entire feel changes.
If it has the heavy solid brake discs with 6 bolt hubs you may be able to fit later Suzuki discs with just a little machining. I also found this listing, which seems like a better investment that having a million little holes drilled SUNSTAR : Neo Classic Front Disc Rotor [LV012WL]
