My kind of basement: 1996 ZX7RR with only 477 miles


Here we have a nice bit of near unobtainium in almost brand new condition, a 1996 Kawasaki ZX7RR N1 with only 477 miles.  The ZX7RR was a true homologation special and Kawasaki only imported 500 of the designated "N"/street legal models, the minimum required to meet requirements for use in Superbike racing.  Not only was the bike rare in and of itself, the ZX7RR was the last of the Kawasaki 750cc/3-quarters homologation bikes.

The ZX7RR was quite a different beast from the standard ZX7, coming with track oriented tech such as adjustable steering head with inserts, front forks with different internals that allowed more adjustments, larger/41mm flatside carburators, carbon fiber goodies (including an airbox), close-ratio gearbox, 6 piston Nissin brakes (instead of the standard Tokico), different rear shock, no passenger pegs or seat, and a trick muffler hanger.

From the pictures in the auction its clear this particular ZX7RR is owned by a Kawasaki ZX7 enthusiast and has led a pampered existence so far.  The seller states that it has been indoors for the last 15 years, that fuel was drained and battery was removed.   While technically you could do as the seller states and "add a battery, fill with fuel and ride away", you would probably also want to spend a few bucks/pounds/euros and replace brake fluid and possibly rubber/tires.


Engine bay looks pristine and goodness that exhaust looks perfect, no "it got scraped while moving the bike" marks.


Is this almost new bit of near unobtainum worth the $20,000 USD asking price? Well this is an opportunity to acquire what is essentially a factory fresh ZX7RR which doesn't come up often and bidding is already quite brisk at $13,000 USD.   As supplies of homologation specials like this dry up prices will go up. While you could have picked up a "bitsa" ZX7RR a few years ago for far less, one in this condition is quite rare.

Personally I think the current bid is already above value but if a ZX7RR is what you need to complete your 1990's homologation collection, then you probably won't find one much nicer than this.  It would certainly look great parked next to other homologation bikes such as the Honda RC30, Ducati Desmosedecci and/or Harley VR1000.

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

zx right
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.

Deal of the year?  It just might be for the Kawasaki  boys.  The BIN of $3,250 is quite pocket pleasing for a double R ZX. It obviously isn't in original condition but it doesn't look abused either.

Winter restore project or ride the hell out of it as it is?

Island Exotica: 1996 Kawasaki ZX7RR

zx rightzx tank stikcer

When you imagine Hawaii, the image a ZX7RR ripping by the beautiful beaches  isn't usually the image that comes to mind.  This lime green Hawaiian may be coming to the mainland or then again,  maybe there is an enthusiast in Hawaii that has been waiting to get his hands on something a little different.  Too far away you say?  Did I mention there is no reserve on the auction?

The story on it:

Up for auction is a VERY rare 1996 ZX7RR N1 Homologation special. Kawasaki only imported 500 "N" models to make this model legal to race in the superbike class for Muzzy. This bike is a true survivor and has been garage kept since I owned it. 
If you aren’t immediately familiar with the N1 7RR and what separates it from the standard 7R, then bear with me. The RR came with adjustable steering geometry and swing arm, 41mm flatside carbs, solo seat, close ration gearbox, 6 piston Nissin brakes, and a few other homologation parts
Since taking possession of the bike I have replaced all the faring hardware, rebuilt the carbs, replace the fuel petcock and fuel lines, replaced the starter relay. Replaced and flushed all the brake fluid, coolant and eng. oil.
This is a no reserve auction! Bid to win it!

 Tell the Mrs. you want to spend a long weekend with her in Hawaii.  Sneak away for a couple of hours one morning to arrange your shipping and bingo:  everyone is happy.  Don't say RSBFS can't help a marraige.  It looks completely stock.  Am I missing anything that has been changed?
