H2 project: 1990 KAWASAKI ZX7 H2

kawasaki 1

Not so long ago you could tell a motorcycle brand simply by the colors of the bodywork.  Laverdas were orange, Ducati's were red, Suzukis were blue and white, and Kawasaki were always green.  Most motorcycle manufacturers have moved away from this signature color scheme philosophy so today you will see red Hondas, orange Kawasakis etc.  When I saw this 1990 Kawasaki ZX7 with the classic green/white/blue bodywork it piqued my interest and after reading the auction I found out not only was this a Kawasaki 750cc Ninja with a Muzzy exhaust system, it was an H2 model.

The 1990 Kawasaki 750 H2 is becoming a highly collectable bike.  The H2 inherited most of the Racekit engine mods found on the ZXR-7 racebike so although the H2 looks very similar to the H1 (both had the ram air snorkel tubes), both engine and frame underwent a lot of changes and parts are often not interchangeable with the H1.

This particular bike looks to be in good condition but there seems to be some evidence of roadrash on the lower fairings and frame.  According to the seller the bike was recently taken out of  5 years of storage so it will need to be tuned  and a full service before it is road ready.

The good news is the seller says the exhaust is a full "muzzy" system with a stage 2 jet kit with k&n filter.  The seller also includes a good amount of high res pics and seems to be honest about the condition of the bike.

The bad news is the seller indicates the front fairings were poorly repainted at some point in the past , the lower fairings have some scrapes, and the seat tail has a couple hair line cracks in it, also a seat rip.  There is also some rust on a few bolts in the pics and the mileage is at 26k so its been ridden a fair amount.  Then again, this bike is almost 25 years old so expecting it to be pristine are pretty low.

Also, KBB lists the retail value for one of these in good condition as about $2500 and the current bidding is close to that with the reserve not yet met so the seller may have unrealistic expectations on what its worth.

Basically it seems like an H2 in need of a light restoration but given the rarity of these bikes, this might be a value pickup for someone who enjoys wrenching and light restoring.

No Reserve H1: 1989 Kawasaki ZX7 for sale in New York

ZX7_H1_2

The big green machines are very popular here on RSBFS. While not nearly as rare as imported smokers or hand-made Italian exotica, the ZX7 H1 models defines everything that is right about sportbike evolution. Fast and looking like it just came off of the track, this generation of Ninja cemented Kawasaki's reputation for delivering cutting-edge sport bikes that worked in the real world. Fast forward 25 years (yes, it has been that long!) and these fluorescent missiles still look every bit the business. While the last ZX7 we listed had but 2,300 miles, this particular example has a few more - but still fewer than 8,000! Can you give it a good home?

1989 Kawasaki ZX7 H1 for sale on eBay

From the seller:
1989 Kawasaki ZX7. 7973 original miles. Completely original and unmodified except for new tires. I purchased this bike from the 63 year old original owner in 2011 with 7400 miles. Exceptional condition, runs perfect, and never dropped. All documentation including copy of original title, original dealership bill of sale, warranty card, unopened owners manual, original sales brochure, both original keys, under seat factory tool kit, factory service manual, etc included. Clear Florida title.

This bike looks very, very sano. With only two owners in the books, very few miles for the age, and all of the extras this bike is ripe for the picking. The auction has no reserve set, and the seller has set an opening bid of $7,000. That feels a bit high to start out with, but without a reserve the seller is certainly trying to protect his investment. Given how the bike looks, I can't say I blame him - although it might dampen bidding enthusiasm. Check it out here and let us know what you think!

Worth Saving: 1989 Kawasaki ZX7 with just 2,300 Miles!

1989 Kawasaki ZX7 for sale

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX7 was a major player in the 750 class back in the 90's and it all started back in 1989 with the "H" models (called ZX7 in the US). The H1 looked uncannily like the first model of the ZXR-7 racer which would be ridden to the championship just a few years later. This particular example has a few stone chips that can be seen on the embedded video and has been modded a bit in the turn signal and headlight area. It also has a painted frame (which apparently can be removed) and an aftermarket exhaust. But it has new tires and low miles so perhaps it will migrate from its home in Florida to a new home that can bring it closer to original condition.

from the seller:

Auctioning off a very Rare and hard to find all original 1989 Kawasaki ZX7 H1 750 Ninja...Bike is like new with only 2318 miles on it !

Previous owner blacked out the frame with matte black spray paint(not permanent) that's easily reversible. I stripped off the right side.

Original frame paint is still there in tact.

Comes off easy enough with some laquer thinner and some patience or tape it up and black it out again. Looks good either way.

Mechanically it is in excellent condition with New Michelin Pilots front and rear...Just serviced with synthetic fluids, new plugs,

carbs cleaned, sync'd and is 100% turn key. This bike is in near excellent condition for 25 yrs old..

Owners manual, original tools and helmet that came with it in 89' are included.

A 10 Of A ZX: 1992 Kawasaki ZX-7R

zx right

OK, I'll go 9.99 because I know there are a couple still out there in crates but lets be realistic;  this is about as good as it gets.  So, for those that didn't pull the trigger on last few ZX-7R's we posted, warm those check books up.

1992 Kawasaki ZX-7R for sale on eBay

What the seller is saying about it:

1992 Kawasaki ZX-7R K2 Ninja, 800 miles. I've owned the bike since 2007, bought it from a Kawasaki dealer's personal collection. The bike is completely stock except for the following; the carb needles are shimmed .040" to help the rideability, and the tires were new in 2007 (Dunlop Sportmax Qualifiers - 8 miles on them total). Although I've only put 8 miles on the bike since I've owned it, I start it 2 to 3 times each summer and let it warm up to keep things lubricated. This bike is one of 7 older sportbikes that I own - none of them are getting a lot of miles on them. All the necessary things are there to distinguish it from the standard ZX-7; aluminum tank, flatslide carbs, close ratio gearbox, etc... I have 2 original keys, owners manual, service manual, complete toolkit and sales brochure.

There is nothing forcing the sale of this bike, but I'll let it go for the right price. Buyer is responsible for pick up or shipping of the bike.

800 mile fresh.  I really don't remember another one like this.

There really isn't anything to discuss.  If you want a rare Kawi from the 90's that looks like it just came out of the showroom, this is it.

The Islands Call: 1992 Kawasaki ZX7R

Last year I posted what I thought would be the only ZX7R in the Hawaiian Islands. Well, little did I know the islands are alive with lime green homologation specials.

You guys know what these are so lets hear what the seller has to say:

I have made some upgrades since I purchased the bike. I have added a hard to find FULL titanium MUZZY exhaust, PM Chicane wheels with new Q3s, Speigler braided brake and clutch lines, HH EBC brake pads, had all the calipers and masters rebuilt with OEM Kawasaki parts, installed new steering head bearings, changed fork seals and dust boots, recharged the rear shock, new OEM air filter and cleaned and rebuild the 39mm flatslides. I have spent countless hours jetting this bike and it wants to be ridden! I just have no time to ride it and feel bad when I do...  Note: Original parts will be included to the winner if they choose.
