Ultra Rare 1990 ZXR250 In CA

Ultra Rare 1990 ZXR250 In CA

If you think a NSR, TZR or RGV250 is rare, try looking up info on a ZXR250.  These were another product of the race replica craze that swept Japan in the late 80's and early 90's.  The 250's became exercises in engineering with each company trying to showcase it's technology.  I don't know if it is correct or not but one spec sheet for the ZXR shows a red line of 18,000 rpm!  Remember these are four cylinder bikes, not two's like the current Ninja 250's.  The 1990 ZXR is very similar to the initial model in 1988.  A major redesign came in 1991.   Claimed hp is the usual 45hp for a 250cc bike  due to Japanese law at the time.  The bummer is the seller states this is actually an SP model.  I could find almost no info on the SP.  Generally SP's had close ratio gear boxes, adjustable suspension and sometimes things like larger carbs.  I'd just be guessing though on the ZXR.  I did find one photo of a later model SP and it had a remote reservoir visible under the tail section.  I also found a video of an early model SP and it had a solo tail section.  Not saying this isn't an SP just pointing out some things to look for.

Here she is.  This is one bike where you could use some detailed pictures.

The seller does not mention much about the bike in the ad other than it is in excellent condition.  He's left out the obvious questions of mileage, title and specs of the bike.  Sounds like a phone call is need to me.  Check out the little Kawi here on Craigslist.  He is asking $3,800.

Here is a reference photo of the bike in classic Kawasaki colors for you from Bikepics.com.  They sure do look good in those colors.

Here is the video I mentioned of an early model SP with a solo tail section:  sounds pretty good too!

1994 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-7R M1 with only 1100 miles!

1994 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-7R M1

Location: Pekin, Illinois
Price: $3,800 B.I.N. with only 1 day left!
Mileage: 1,100

Okay, so you'll have to use your imagination a little to get past the bodywork not being present. But, if you can this appears to be a super clean, low mileage 7R. As far as my searches can tell the M1 and M2's might be the rarest zx7's of them all. RSBFS has never posted a M1 or M2 and when you compare 0 to all of the K1, K2 and N1's that we see that makes these pretty darn elusive. I don't have the answer as to why these are never available, but if someone else does please enlighten me.

The M1 and M2's sport the aluminum gas tanks, Flatslide carbs, close ration transmission, adjustable swing arm and fully adjustable suspension on both ends. Like most homologation superbikes, they don't make very good real world, daily rides because 1st gear is too tall. But, once you get them rolling they are a hoot and the close ratio transmission keeps you right in the meat of the power band at all times.

I just checked and it appears Kawasaki still offers all of the OEM body work to put this one back together to spec, but at an enormous cost. I guess if you factor in $500 for shipping to your door, about $2,500 for new bodywork, windscreen, signals and exhaust canister you'd be sitting on a great bike for any collection. When you add it all up it puts you right in the mix for what these usually go for with low miles and good condition.

Interested in this project?

Cheers!

Project 1992 Kawasaki ZX-7R K2 on Ebay

Project 1992 ZX-7R K2 Homologation Superbike on Ebay

Location: Gageslake, IL
Price: $2,200 B.I.N.
Mileage: 26,000 or 32,000

Hmmmm, something interesting here for the tinkerer.  This is not a garage queen by any means but might be a nice gem in the rough for the right person.  It is a fairly high mileage bike with 26,000 miles (for some reason the seller has listed the mileage at 32,000 in the auction) on the odometer.  It looks like it has had a  small slide as evidence by some rash.  I guess the big question mark is the countershaft.  It is apparently stripped where you mount the sprocket.  Good news is the seller is including the replacement part.  Bad news is what might have caused this.  Might be a simple fix, might not.  The bright spot here is the seller realizes the bike needs some work and has it listed at a very modest price.

From the seller:

Super rare 1992 Kawasaki ninja zx7r 750r only a few hundred ever brought to the states. This bike came with aluminum gas tank adjustable suspension 39mm flat slide carbs and much more . The bike is in very good shape with tons of new parts on it like a brand new stainless steel full muzzy exhaust system.There is a minor crack in the fairing and some scrapes and scratches but not real bad for a bike this age. The bike runs but will need some work the carbs probably could use a cleaning and The front fork seals will need to be replaced.the worst part about the bike is the shaft were the front sprocket goes on is stripped . I have a replacement shaft for the bike it just needs to be installed. The bike is in very good over all condition and road fine before the shaft stripped out

If  you have the tools and the time I'd jump over to the auction quickly.  Project bikes at reasonable prices seem to go pretty quickly and the seller has a buy it now price of just $2,200.  It's not everyday you can pick up a rare bike for a modest price.  .

1989 Kawasaki KR-1 250cc 2-stroke

1989 Kawasaki KR-1 250cc 2-stroke screamer

*UPDATE - Ed tells me it sold to the first person who looked at.

Location: Miami, FL
Price: $2,600
Mileage: unknown - but, Ed kindly gives his phone # for any would be buyers to inquire about his bike.

This was submitted by Ed, the owner of this little gem, and he is only asking $2,600 bucks for it! Heck, at that price you can barely by a 49cc scooter. Make the jump to the listing here.

Rare, rare 250cc 1989 KR1 Kawasaki. High rpm screamer, 55 HP / 280pounds. Engine has been tuned, oil injection works, new brake pads, lights & signals good. Cosmetics are OK but would need full paint & polish to make it to restoration level

Bill of sale only, have info on obtaining title.

I think it's a steal even without a title and current registration.

Cheers!

1989 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-7 H1 model

1989 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-7

Price: $3500
Location: O'Fallon, MO
Mileage: <20,000 This is RSBFS fan Neal's baby and he is reluctantly selling it. Decked out in Classic Kawasaki Racing colors and ready to hit the road is Neal's good looking H1. Now for those of you who aren't familiar with the H1's, these started it all for Kawasaki and Muzzy with Doug Chandler at the helm. That's right, although the later versions K1, K2, M1, M2 and N1's garner more attention and have a certain savoir faire about them, it's the H1's that paved the way. I've always been a Kawasaki fan first and a Yamaha fan second and I fancy these early 7's. Logging an average 952.38 miles a year, this one is sure to be in fine shape.

Have a look and judge for yourself:

From Neal's CL post:

1989 Kawasaki ZX-7 with just shy of 20K miles on it. Nearly bone stock...

Own a piece of Super Bike History. 1989 was the first year of ZX-7 production, worldwide. Factory Race Team looks and fantastic performance made this a highly desired bike in it's time. This is the same model bike as used by Doug Chandler to win the AMA Superbike Title in 1990.

Recent tune, including: oil system flushed, new oil filter, new plugs, air filter cleaned, brake and clutch fluids topped off, new battery, coolant system flushed, valve adjustment, carburetors cleaned and re-jetted, all pivot points checked and lubricated and and all wiring and fuses inspected. The only thing the bike still needs is new tires.

This bike is a former California model and as such had all of the emissions plumbing. This has all been removed, though may be included if you'd like, with the bike being re-tuned to suit. Performance is substantially better due to this modification.

Bike is all stock with the exception of the removal of the emissions components, the D&D exhaust and a Vance & Hines ignition advancer. Original bodywork, windscreen, seats, all of it. I do not have the stock exhaust, though I do have another aftermarket exhaust. A Yoshimura Zyclone full system with a Polished muffler. All components of the bike work as they should (blinkers, horn, brakes, starter, clutch, transmission, etc...). There are no 'odd' noises coming from any part of the bike or the motor. The original tool kit, with all originally included tools, is under the passenger seat. The only things missing from the bike are the original reflectors and the license plate light.

Bike does have light damage to the left side fairing, as seen in the photos. No cracks, just a few scrapes. Easily repairable.

Also included in this sale will be a replacement sticker for the left side fairing, a factory service manual and a book I made of prints of the micro-fiche showing all parts and assemblies.

And there you have it.. Put on a new set of skins and you're ready to rock-n-roll and be the talk of your local bike night. If you're a fan of the early ZX-7's like Neal and I jump over to CL and check it out. If you have any questions about this one Neal is quick to respond and a pleasure talk to about Kawasaki's.

I just remembered how long I've been a Kawi fan... Does anyone, besides me, remember being in grade school making noises like you're shifting gears, but instead you used the motorcycle manufacturers name? It goes like this:

Kaawww (1st gear) waaaaaaa (2nd gear) saaaaaak (3rd gear) kiiii (4th gear) and so on.. 3rd grade- I was doing that! Ahh... the memories I have of motorcycling.

Cheers!

1986 Kawasaki Ninja GPZ900R Time Capsule For Sale

Today's latest feature comes from Declan in Long Beach, California. Check out this very clean and very low mile GPZ900R for sale in Long Beach.

Update: This listing has just been adjusted to $4900 or best offer!

quote from seller:

1986 900 Ninja has 1804 miles on it with a Corbin seat, Kerker exhaust, and even has the original warranty card! This bike was never raced or been wrecked and the only thing not original as purchased are the Battlax tires.

The pictures really do speak for themselves; this thing is clean!

The GPZ900R is another classic sportbike that was king of the hill in her day. The first Kawasaki to wear the Ninja namesake featuring 115hp and a top speed of 150mph.
