Not Your Average K1: 1992 Kawasaki ZX-7R

Pompano Beach, FL – 16,000mi — $5,700 with Reserve

92ZX7RK1_2

Are you looking for that sportbike with classic looks and racing history, but needing some current technology? Then stop and take a look at this 1992 ZX-7R. The ZX-7R was homologated for World Superbike use and featured an aluminum tank, flat-side carbs, adjustable suspension and more horsepower than the standard model of the time.

Original complaints about the flat-side carbs were that low speed riding wasn’t as smooth as the base ZX-7. We all know that with proper tuning, these were screamers on the race track, but for those who aren’t rocketing out of pit lane, the seller as replaced these with the standard carbs (don’t worry, the flat-side are included). The bike also features a host of upgrades, including the front end off an ’09 GSX-R750.

More from the seller:

The bike have a full Muzzy exhaust with Dynojet carb kit on 38 mm CV carbs from a regular 1992 ZX7 model plus a K&N airl filter.
Why the vacuum carburetors?,so make it easy to ride at low RPM.
I have the CR FLAT SLIDES carbs on a box,with the throttle cables ,airbox and manifolds.
The bike have as well a rear Penske race shock,steering damper,Woodcraft rearset,Vortex clip ons with matching purple bars (same color as the word NINJA at the fuel tank).
The bike have a profesionally installed front end from a GSXR 750 2009,with a custom billet top triple clamp with radial pump and brake calipers,rotors,carbon fiber fender,wheel (power coated to match).So you get current brake power and suspension,plus save couple pounds.
For collectors I have the stock front end as well:forks ,triple clamps,brake calipers,rotors,wheel,fender,axle,clip ons,etc.
The bike have Galfer SBK steel braided brake lines.Very expensive ones.
And lightweight 520 chain with lighter sprockets,and almost brand new Bridgestone tires.
I have all the stock parts beside the stock exhaust.
As you can see all the upgrades are done for a professional tech.
Bike have a clean Fl title on hand and everything works perfect.

Sure this may not be a bone stock example of one of the coolest bikes ever, but it is still one of the coolest bikes ever. To me, the ZX-7R K1 represents the allure of what homologated specials from the early 90’s were all about. Bidding is already active and up to $5,700, but the Reserve remains in place with roughly four days left. If youre interested in the Kawi classic, then check out the auction here and place your bid!

  • very nice mean sweet greenie!

  • Nice looking bike. But on some photos it looks like the rear swingarm has not original paint. Right lower cowling is not riginal “R” one. “R” right hand lower cowling should have one extra hole above letter K. This bike is nice example even with these facts. These “R” vesrions are one of the most rarest bikes in world especially in mint 100% original condition. If I remember correctly, the last one original was sold for 9 987 on Ebay. I expect these bikes will grow in a value rapidly, same as RC30 and OW01 did during last 5 years.

  • Well written JS! These bikes had a lot more than the aluminum tank solo tail flat slides la la la …. curious if anyone here really knows what Kawasaki did with these bikes? Heres one of the many, the fork tubes are a different diameter ……its really impressive if you get into it how different they really are than a standard J.

    Still scares the pants off me when the flatslides kick in. Pulls like a freight train and it does about oh 100 mph in first gear ….. great bikes, nothing made like these today. Watch the demand for these, get one now … they are rare

  • This seller has a nice collection of bikes .. What is the bike in the Marlboro colors in the garage, surely not one of Wayne Rainey’s actual bikes??

  • … it does look like a YZR500 .. anyone?

  • LIt’s likely a Rainey tribute custom RZ500 with Airtech fairings- note the small headlight in center. None of the factory Yamaha Rainey bikes were sold or released to the public, but Wayne has one in his house that Yamaha gifted him for winning one of his world championships.

  • I asked him if it was for sale, he told me it was sold …. I tried ….

  • Thanks Big Tex! And I believe we featured that other bike way back.
