1981 KZ Z750 L for sale. This is the precursor to the GPZ and eventual ZX (Ninja) line of Kawasaki.
MOTd until September however will be exempt in July.
This Started life as a sport touring motorcycle and for its time it was one of the quickest and reliable air cooled 750s on the market.
If your looking at this advert then you know the bulletproof reliability of this bike and the reputation which proceeds this model. This bike is however little bit special.
Inspired by the 1950s cafe Racer scene this KZ750 has been rebuilt from the ground up to a very high standard.
The bike is essentially a KZ750 chassis and engine with everything else being either a modern replacement or upgrade.
The bike features a later Zephyr front fork / wheel and rear wheel upgrade with HEL braided brake lines front and rear. Forks have been rebuilt recently by MCT in Suffolk and rear shocks are WILBERS from Germany. (These alone would cost around £600).
Front yoke is custom and polished along with the headlight and mounts.
KOSO digital Speedo
Fuel tank has been lined with POR54 to protect against modern fuels.
Fresh fuel lines and upgraded fuel tap.
CARBURETTORS Have been overhauled and cleaned. DYNOKIT state 3 kit (original jets and kit included in sale) along with individual oiled pod filters. Fuel inlet T pipe replaced with custom aluminium inlet from USA.
Ignition has been upgraded to a DYNATEK system with fresh HT leads, plug caps and Spark Plugs. Dynatek ignition includes electronic ignition plate and uprated DS2 Coil Packs. These have transformed the bike and look awesome.
Inside the engine, this has been rebuilt with new ATHENA gaskets and whilst I was stripping the engine down, valve oil seals, stem oil seals were replaced along with an exhaust valve being replaced. Valves relapped and good compression following this. Top end of the engine was cleaned and decoked. Valve clearances checked and reshimmed as necessary (original shims included) This was done less than 100 miles ago. Along with new gaskets, new rubber Camshaft half moons fitted.
After engine being timed, Carburettors were balanced on CARBTUNE PRO.
Cam chain tensioner replaced with APE aluminium manual tensioner.
Swingarm upgraded to Metmachex braced swingarm.
Recent chain and sprockets.
PEROZZI rear sets.
Starter clutch rebuilt
Electric connectors cleaned and replaced as required
Custom made bench seat and tail tidy. Leather upper.
Bullet LED indicators and LED brake light.
New motobatt AGM gel Battery. Shorai Lithium battery included however while this is a lot smaller and lighter it’s not got the same ‘cranking’ power as the AGM. Both batteries come with their own custom battery box.
Mileage on the Speedo is 3270 Although I suspect the true mileage is higher given the age of the bike, however with the work done, a lot of the parts listed above will be this new. Mileage will go up slightly she the weather is good…
PRIVATE REG INCLUDED
Fresh oil and filter. (Will include new boxed filter and gasket for next change)
Bike is in fantastic condition and gets a lot of attention out and about. According to the website ‘how many left’ there are only currently 3 other models of this bike and age currently registered on the roads still…
Always garaged during my ownership and bought as a project over winter to bring it up to what it is now.
Will be ready to ride for the summer! Loads of photographs of rebuild and work done along with receipts, spare carb Jets, Dyno print out, original IC igniter and 2 X spare Athena valve cover gaskets. Sale will include paddock stand and front/rear huggers.
If all the above wasn’t enough. This summer the bike becomes historic so will be Mot and Tax exempt so will only need insurance and fuel…

(Video isn’t best audio. Engine doesn’t have any tapping and sounds great in person. Autograph decal on tank is Steve McQueen’s and can be easily removed)
