The piece on the tank is just an aftermarket stick on "tank pad" to prevent your zipper from scratching the tank. There are lots to choose from. I think the one on mine is just a generic carbon fiber look piece. It was on the bike when I got it.
EDIT - took a close look at mine and noticed it has the Z logo - guess someone spent the big bucks for the real deal.
cheap ones on ebay:
Want the real deal?
Want the sides covered too?
The rear racks require a new tail piece and struts that go through it and bolt to the subframe. I have a spare, blue tail piece with a little damage inside, but not the rack, struts or hardware. It does come in handy at times.

Thanks.....right thing to do.
I have a 94 RS with 170,000 miles on it, with over 110,000 on the 96 spec transmission that was replaced in 98. The clutch splines will get cleaned/lubed again this winter when I pull the tranny back. But the "slowly eats the clutch splines" comment really isn't true as long as you do regular maintenance.
Get trained! The best "performance" upgrade you can get is YOU. Visit msf-usa.org for training info.

Lotsa talk. Need more pictures. Time for an "S" shot.
Sweet lookin' S! Like that Phil Read edition Arai as well....
(But Titan Gray/Mandarin S bikes are still the fastest)
I'd love to do just that! But unfortunately my bum ticker doesn't play well at high elevations in the Rockies!
Looks like Mr. Fish will be making a trip to the west coast.
