Not a KZ, but a darn close cousin - My ZR550 Zephyr:

Which, due to a buzzing hornet's nest of noise from the cam chain tensioner, got me into making tensioners for most all Kaws. I love the superbike look and the stone axe simplicity of the air cooled KZ based 550. Way too much fun.

If any of you do have tensioner issues, $30 cure. PM me or look up Krieger Cam Chain Tensioners. Kawasakis are NOT always THAT noisy. Both mind quieted down as have about 60 others.

Is that European ELR white? I do like the 1000, did they use that striping on the 1000? I'm not positive, but I think they did that on the earlier 75 Z1 900 in the states.
Ever get lost? You know, that good kind of lost - come to a dirt road intersection and you have no idea where you are or which way to turn? I like when that happens!
