1996 Kawasaki ZX 7RR N1 Homologation Muzzy Special

1996 Kawasaki ZX 7RR

Location: Anaheim, CA
Mileage: 5,835
Price: $8,500.00

What better way to follow up yesterdays 91 ZX 7R post than to post the final chapter in Kawasaki Homologation Super Bike production models.

For me the N1’s represent the ultimate in the Homologation era. I know they didn’t receive all the glitz and glamor like the RC’s, OW’s and GSX-RR’s, but I’m Team Green through and through. There’s no better color combination than Team Green and purple. I used to flip through the rags and drool over these. Someday before I’m old and crusty I will own this particular model of ZX 7.

On with the show-

This is another one of Nathans bikes up for sale and as usual he tells me it is in perfect shape and running order. I think the pictures tell the story and if not just hit Nathan up and ask all the questions you want.

The highlights of the N1’s include
-Adjustable steering geometry
-Adjustable swing arm pivot
-41mm Flat slide carbs
-Close ratio gearbox
-Solo tail section
-6 pot front brake calipers

Although, the N1’s didn’t gain any horsepower from the factory with the larger carbs they certainly had more potential under a set of knowledgeable hands such as Rob Muzzy’s. The N1’s also carried a few more pounds over the previous homologation models, but had upgraded suspension to handle it.

From the seller:

Yep you are seeing right!! a 1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR Muzzy special edition!! There were only 500 of these made ever not just in the USA but total I am told as they are numbered. This is one of the most sought after bikes of this time.

This bike has 5,835 miles only!! It’s in PERFECT shape!! Thats right it gets no cleaner than this. This bike also runs perfect.

Even look at the seat cowl pad its perfect!!

Things that have been done to it are tail section chopped for way more aggressive look

Put in brand new LED rear brake light that has the turn signals built in as well you have to see looks so awesome at night!!

LED front signal light flush mounted to look cleaner.

Now for you collectors out there that want a stock collector bike that is no problem cause with the bike comes with a brand new OEM fender if you want to make it stock again as well as the stock rear light and of course the stock signal lights which can all be put right back on if you want it to be just like it came off the showroom floor.

No trades please I am only selling because I have hurt my knee and can no longer ride without pain.

I’m saddened that I have to let this one pass me by, but I’m sure someone who likes them as much as I do will pick this one up. If you’re interested give Nathan a call and he’ll be happy to answer all of your questions.

Good luck with the sale!

Another Ex-Chandler Race Bike: #10’s 2006 Kawasaki ZX10R

Another Ex-Chandler Race Bike:  #10’s  2006 Kawasaki ZX10R

Too bad it wasn’t his old Cagiva GP bike huh?  Well you can’t have everything and this bike does have some awfully tasty pieces.  As the title suggests, this isn’t even the first Ex-Chandler ZX we’ve seen here at RSFS.  This one  was posted back at the end of 2009.

I don’t believe those forks came stock on the ZX.  I know the ZX chassis was always suspect for racing but I bet quite a few guys would like that setup to show off at the local hangout.  I found an old press release from 2006 that claims the engine work was done by famed Kawi tuner Rob Muzzy’s shop.  It is kind of interesting though, that there is no mention of this in the auction info below…hmmm.  I would think that would be a strong selling point.

The seller states this is one of two bikes built for Chandler’s 2006 season.  I guess my first question would be if this was the “A” or “B” bike and if there were any differences.

The info:

This is one of two bikes Doug built for the 2006 season. The bike does have a title so with a little work could be made street legal. The chassis starts with a 50mm MARZOCCHI forks with special made upper and lower triple trees. Wheels are forged MAGNESIUM by EXCEL.Has PVM front brakes with wave rotors. Comes with a brand new set of slicks and tire warmers. Rear shock is an OHLINS. Has a GPR steering dampner. Has Hot Bodies body work and comes with a complete set of extra Hot Bodies body work. Also has a FC FuelCel. According to Doug the motor is making around 195 – 200 horsepower. Comes with titanium exhaust and lots of titanium fasteners. The bike starts up and idles like a street bike, sounds amazing! Comes with a set of sprockets, new air filters and new clutch plates. Also has a front and rear stand. This is an awesome bike built by a three time AMA champion. Buyer is responsible for pick up or shipping. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks

Everyone likes extras and speaking of extras, it sounds like the motor isn’t hurting in the pony department.  If you’d like to own a small piece of racing history you can .

By the way, do you think owning a Cagiva GP bike is just a dream?  Check out this photo from a gathering at Imola.  This is apparently someones private collection.  If you like this sort of stuff be sure to check out two stroke section on the Performance Bikes Forum.  It has a cool thread on the Cagiva GP bikes.  I don’t want to hear about anyone bragging about their collection of bikes until you have at least two of these.
