low pipes pretty much put it at pre 1977ish on all jap.
Non leading axle forks were also passe' by the late 70's.
the white stripe Kawasaki's like the one you were inquiring about are mostly 1973 ish since the stripe was black on the 1974's. I think.
the stripe and lettering definitely changed and that is an earlier one.
Here is a 1976 KX 400.
I believe the black fenders are correct. but I'm not sure.
not quite as "white" in the striping as the earlier ones.
