1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR with only 762 miles!

1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR N1 with only 762 miles and 100% stock!

Located in Marrero, LA is this pristine 7RR N1 Homologation Superbike. Since I started writing for RSBFS.com I’ve mentioned several times that my two favorite bikes are N1’s and FZR400 ‘s. The N1’s are the pinnacle for me and the 400 are a very, very distant second place. I’ve been in love with ZX7’s all my sportbike life, but have yet to own one. I’ve come very close to buying one, but have never pulled the trigger. When Les sent this one in today I was beside myself trying to decide whether I should post it or contact the seller and ask “what’s it going to take to put that in my garage?” But, since I have a better half, I decided to run it by her and see what the reaction would be. Not much to my surprise, there was a lot of mumbling, a few choice words about me and my bikes, I also heard something about diamonds, but couldn’t quite make it out. Needless to say, I’m posting it instead of contacting the seller.

I’m guessing most people would agree, even if you aren’t a Kawasaki fan, that the 7RR’s have something about them that says ‘I’m fast’. The design is aggressive and it has a certain flare about it that no other bike, in my opinion, has. These came from the factory with adjustable swing arms, adjustable steering head and 41mm flatslide carbs. The N1’s didn’t get the luxury of the aluminum gas tank like the previous years, but as mentioned did have more adjustable parts which included better suspension. If you are unfamiliar with Team Green Machines here are a few of my favorite websites that talk extensively about the 7R/7RR’s. First up is the evolution of Kawasaki’s Homologation Supebike. Next up is one of my favorite ‘eye candy’ sites regarding my favorite Superbike.

The seller didn’t put many pictures up on the auction so you’ll have to contact him should you be interested in seeing more.

Quotes from the auction:

SUPER RARE!!!!! 1996 KAWASAKI ZX7RR IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH ONLY 762 MILES!!!! BEAUTIFUL !!!!!!!! EVERTHING IS ORIGINAL FACTORY

Okay, so not many pictures and not much to say, but in all actuality what can he say other than “Sweet and being sold as new!” I have to believe if I didn’t just buy another 400 I’d be in the ring, but as it sits I’m out on this one. It is being offered with a starting bid of $8,000.00 and I have to believe the reserve is somewhere around $10,000.00. Hopefully, this one will be bought and enjoyed or put in a museum for everyone to enjoy.

Cheers!

1991/2 Kawasaki ZX 7RR all original!

Found this one first thing this morning on // <![CDATA[
document.write('eBay‘);
// ]]>.  As you may know, by now, these are my favorite and this one makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.  I’ll probably be in the mix with a bid or two, so bid to win!

rr1rr2rr3rr4rr5rr6rr7rr8

1992 Kawasaki zx7r Rare, original and unmolested. First off this bike is a CASH ONLY deal if you do not have the cash available please do not bid! 500.00 deposit through PayPal within 48hrs of auction end. O.K. now that that is out of the way I will begin. Yes,this is the real deal homologation model, aluminum gas tank, close ratio 6 speed transmission, solo seat and 40mm flat slides. Factory race bike very rare I highly doubt there is another one in better condition. From what I have been told there were less than 200 built.I have owned this bike since 1995 I bought it with 700 street miles on it, it has never been raced, crashed, dropped or mistreated in anyway never ridden in rain always garaged, it has some small scuffs on the tail section where the back pad attaches to it you can see them in the picture unfortunately this is how I bought and it was done at the dealer. It has a couple small scratches on the underneath of the right fairing, which cannot be seen unless you are lying down on your back. Other than that this bike is as mint as they come. The tank, plastics, seat, rims etc. are flawless. Truly must be seen to be appreciated. It has a fender eliminator kit on it which did not require any cutting so the original fender can be put back on also it has a full Muzzy stainless and aluminum exhaust. The fender and original exhaust both mint will be included in the sale. Brand new battery I even saved the original battery if you want it. The tank decal in the pictures is included I don’t think you can find one if you wanted to, some of these bikes came with this sticker applied and some didn’t. If you have been waiting and looking for one of these bikes this is the one you want. Clear title in hand. The rear stand is NOT included in the auction. Any questions please ask, if you need or want any more pics ask and I will send them to you. Again CASH ONLY DEAL! Shipping is up to the buyer I will help in any way possible loading etc.

The eBay description and VIN sticker say it’s a 1992, but all of my information says the K1 serial code is a 1991, which this bike has.  The description also states that this has 40mm carbs, but once again, all of my information says they came with 39mm carbs.

The condition of this 7rr is amazing! I posted a 96 7rr a few days back that was in good shape, but heavily modified. This one appears to have all of the right stuff with only 7,724 miles on it. Original exhaust, original championship sticker, original fender, reflectors, it’s all there! The only thing missing is the original crate from the factory.  This one has all the goods and should bring some good $$$.  I would love to continue blabbering about this bike, but I have to go home and start taking inventory on what I can sell. My kids should be scared!  Good Luck!

Update:  This bike sold for $9,855.00!

1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR (yes, the real deal)

This is the last year for the true, factory race, 7RR’s

DSC_0016DSC_0007-1DSC_0012-1DSC_0009-1

These are getting super hard to find and this one looks to be in pretty good shape.  The miles are a little high at 26,000, but hey, it’s 14 years old.  This one has some very tasteful upgrades that include PM Chicane wheels, Muzzy exhaust and a Double Bubble wind screen.  It’s for sale on ebay right now so if you are in the market for one of these don’t let it get away. 

  What sets these awesome bike apart from their ZX7R siblings is the following:

Keihin Flatslide Carbs as opposed to the standard CV carbs. 
Close ratio gear box and slipper clutch.
Adjustable rear swingarm pivot.
Adjustable steering head angle.
Adjustable front suspension with more compression and rebound (Fork tubes slightly bigger than stock zx7r).
Upgraded front calipers.

The 96’s are my favorite of the 7RR’s I only wish I could bid to win.  This one isn’t a Garage Queen as it has plenty of miles on it so you shouldn’t feel bad about riding should you win the auction.  At time of this posting the bid was a measly $1,000.00, but the reserve wasn’t met.  I would suspect this one will fetch somewhere in the $5,000 to $6,000 range, if the seller will let it go for that.

1991/2 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-7RR

Located in Wenatchee, Washington is a very cool 1991/2 Kawasaki ZX-7RR.  I have become very interested in these lately and this looks to be a very good, original, example.  This bike has 10,244 miles and an asking price of $5,500.  The bike has some small scratches on the fairing but otherwise looks to be OK; it comes with an additional rear tire.  Thanks must go out to Doug & Phil for clarification.  This post is somewhat older, so see the ad on Craigslist here.

Update: Looks like there were some typos in the ad. Our sharp eyed readers are on the case. Check comments below and Doug writes in:

The latest posting for the zx7rr is not correct. That is a 91/2 7rr. Just in case you don’t know (maybe you do know) 91, 92 didn’t have the adjustable swing arm and have K1 (91) or K2 (92) in the serial #. 1993 and 94 have adjustable swing arms and have M1 (93) and M2 (94) in the serial # plus the square ram air in the upper fairing. Skip 95 and the 96 have N1 in the serial # adjustable swing arm and steering head and 41 mm flat sides vs the preceeding years 39mm flats, also 96 have the steel tanks vs the aluminum tanks. One more note worthy difference is the fairing. 96 were all green lower and upper with a purple tail section.

Thanks for the heads up guys! dc

1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR

Available Toronto, Canada is a 1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR that needs to be put back together.  Seller states that the bike has 22,000kms (13,670mi) but needs the motor reassembled (with no mention of why it was taken apart), exhaust, and a chain & sprockets fitted.  This bike differs from a regular ZX-7R in that it has an adjustable head-stock angle, alloy tank & swing arm, close ratio gear box, different front calipers and larger carburetors.  Once this bike gets put back together it could be quite a nice example once everything is sorted.  Price is not listed.  Thanks for the link, Bobby.  See the Kijiji ad here.

Sponsored Listing – 1993 Kawasaki ZX-7 from Speedwerks !

Update 9.19.2020: This bike has SOLD to an RSBFS reader! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

Long time RSBFS sponsor, Speedwerks, has trained their restorative techniques on a 1993 Kawi, and ensured that its outstanding looks are backed up by a healthy dose of attention from their service technicians.

1993 Kawasaki ZX-7 for sale at Speedwerks

Coming out in the heart of the sportbike era, the ZX-7 came with a warranty, but change was guaranteed every year, with manufacturers throwing their level best at the AMA and World Superbikes.  For ’93 an all new top end cooked up 118 hp for the 749cc four, using four 38mm Keihin carburetors and a new single intake for ram air.  Multi-adjustable USD forks and Uni-Trak monoshock, plus 17-inch wheels were found at either end, along with 320mm front disks.  The riding position got good marks and a theoretical passenger is possible on the biposto seat console.

Evidently being re-activated after some years in a collection, this ZX-7 has the full nineties treatment, right down to the orange-fade-to-purple logos.  Exterior condition is way better than excellent, with just an isolated rub visible.  The tail treatment leaves a clean surface under the seat, and the green windscreen shows the previous owner was a fan.  Steve’s comments about the ZX-7:

This is a good rider or bust out your parachute pants, comb back your mullet and become a collector.
We received this machine from a private collection, where it sat on display for years.
It is original sans the Zero Gravity windscreen and Targa undertail.
We preformed a complete service and it is 100% operational, as it would have been in 1993.
The tires are original/period correct Dunlop 208’s, in great shape but should be updated to ride daily.
There are a few scars in the paint work but overall it shows very well.

Speedwerks is asking $6,500 for this time capsule and Steve can be reached on (302)672-RACE or via email – here -.

As evidence of a winning design, with Rob Muzzy’s preparation, Scott Russell took his ZX-7R to the AMA Superbike championship in 1992, and claimed the World Superbike the next year.  Since they occupied the lower pricing tier with Suzuki, few have been babied or cared for like this example.  This might be a show bike for the next owner, but is also ready to provide the superbike experience from almost thirty years ago as well.

Contact Steve at Speedwerks for more information on this exceptional ZX-7, (302)672-RACE or via email – here -.

Featured Listing – 1993 Kawasaki ZX-7 with under 9,000 miles !

Update 9.15.2020: This bike has SOLD! Congratulations to buyer and seller! -dc

( In your best Rod Serling voice ) “Imagine if you will, riding a quintessential 90’s supersport around town, and attracting very little attention…”  This ZX-7 with rather low miles is dressed up in candy apple red, and is in lovely survivor condition.

     

1993 Kawasaki ZX-7 for sale Asking $4,950

The ZX-7 came ashore in 1989, with the usually green bikes’ eyes on the AMA Superbike series.  Some nice improvements were made in 1991, with a seriously oversquare engine layout ( 71mm bore x 47.3 mm stroke ), 38mm carbs, and upside-down forks.  The single air scoop was added in 1993, sending ram air to the newly-designed top end.  Steering was always a ZX-7 strong point, and incremental improvement was made to the rear suspension over the years.  The black painted alloy chassis complements the alternate color scheme perfectly.

 

RSBFS reader Rocco has tended his ZX-7 carefully, the brandywine red metallic still sparkling.  The Muzzy exhaust might be the only update, and tires look to have a lot of miles left.  Rocco’s notes on the ZX-7:

1993 ZX-7 (ZX750L) with 8,984 original miles.
Original plastics – All VIN tags in place.
Engine/Frame/etc. all very clean.
Runs and Rides great.
Light damage on right side lower gas tank from falling off lift while stationary
and small crack in upper cowl fairing.
Muzzy full system with correct jetting.
CLEAN OHIO TITLE IN HAND.

So what’s to like here? The low miles, the reasonable price, compared to a more exotic ZX-7RR, the period Muzzy pipe, and classic superbike looks. What’s not to like? The fact that it’s just a standard ZX-7 and the minor damage mentioned.

I doubt these will ever be worth crazy money, but it’s certainly a bike that should go up in value and you’ll be able to ride it in the meantime without worrying too much about either damaging an ultra-rare exotic or devaluing it by adding too many miles.

Extremely well preserved. Runs like it looks, INCREDIBLE. Items included in sale: original owner’s manual, tool kit, matching gloves and helmet, clear title. Rare was the factory brandywine red color but rarer here is a true survivor time capsule ready to take you back – don’t miss it.

Rocco asks $4,950 for his ZX-7

Kawasaki gave Team Muzzy a great platform to start, and they delivered four AMA titles with Doug Chandler and Scott Russell aboard.  Almost like a UCF fighter out for dinner in a suit, the brandywine ZX-7 blends in, giving off a more sport touring vibe.  What a surprise when the rider calls up the 118hp exiting the next corner !  Rocco’s ZX-7 carves out an interesting corner in the sport bike world – very sporty credentials, practically vintage at this point, hidden under the alternate livery and immaculate presentation.

Texas Tornado* – 1985 Kawasaki GPz 750 Turbo

Sorry not Colin Edwards, but a turbocharged Kawasaki from Texas – a sharp restoration of the classic 1985 model with sparkling cosmetics and performance mods.

1985 Kawasaki GPZ 750 Turbo for sale on eBay

Kawasaki came late to the gas-crisis turbo developments, but gave us the sportiest and least compromised model.  On boost the 738cc mill makes 112 hp and 73 ft.-lbs. torque, using fuel injection and just 7.8:1 compression.  The engine scoop hides the small turbocharger, which helped push the GPz through the traps at 136 mph.  GT style 18-inch wheels are fitted, along with air-adjustable suspension front and rear.  The frame is cold steel but the fairing is a hot and shapely red.

Too much time has elapsed to worry about ownership history on this Turbo, but the odo was apparently reset during the restoration.  Even with all the work done, the appearance is not far from stock.  The turbo in the exhaust system calms the normally noisy Supertrapp muffler.  Comments and a long list of updates from the eBay auction:

It has been tastefully modified, close to a resto-mod but not too much that its originality is lost. I have the original rear fender, grab rail and chain guard. Stock exhausts are being reproduced and you could make this bike factory original if desired. I also have the stock rear wheel, it is perfect with a near new tire.

Start stops and runs perfectly. This bike has won shows, it is show quality. It turns heads and always draws a crowd. This bike is no joke and it is blindingly fast and when the turbo hits you better be hanging on. It only has 3,500 miles on it since the complete rebuild.

Here is a rundown of what has been done –

810 KIT W/WISECO PISTONS

HTS10 TURBO WITH BILLET IMPELLER FROM EVERGREEN TURBO

K&N INTAKE

By the time all four Japanese manufacturers had their turbo models ready, OPEC ministers had peeked around the corner and calmed oil prices.  And insurers saw potential losses in all the leading-edge equipment aboard these bikes, dampening sales further with higher rates.  Still for a while the GPz 750 Turbo was the fastest bike in the showroom, and this one has been worked for even more power – while maintaining its great GPz looks.
