The successor to the Z1, Kawasaki’s KZ900 was sold as a reliable big bike that could tour or go fast, maybe even doing both at the same time! This example has been heavily modified – the question now is if you like the result more than the stock bike?
Basics on the Kawi included a dry weight of 511 pounds and 82 horsepower, which yielded a top speed of 120 miles per hour. Check out Motorcycle Classics if you want to learn more about the KZ900 and how successful it was as the “Son of the Z1”.
This example was stripped down to the frame, which was then powdercoated. New parts include a Kerker 4-1 exhaust, Dyna ignition/coils, tires/tubes, chain/sprockets, gauges, wiring harness PMC billet motor mounts, and cables. A quick scan of the photos also reveals a Pingel petcock, Lester mags, oil pressure gauge, Kerker seat cover, Tarozzi fork brace, steering stabilizer, and piggyback gas shocks. It’s covered just 102 miles since the work was performed.
