1976 Kawasaki Z900

When introduced, the Z900 was the largest and most powerful 4-cylinder, 4-stroke, Japanese motorcycle ever built and was launched to a fiercely competitive marketplace versus Honda and their mighty CB750.  The 903cc of the Kawasaki won through in the end though!

Ours is a very original twin-disc bike, but don’t read that to mean scruffy and unloved.  Quite the opposite.  It has had more than €1,500 Euros recently invested in a comprehensive recommission including rebuilt and ultrasonically cleaned carburetors, oil, filter, plugs and bigger jets for the carbs.

It further benefits from being fitted with a nearly-new four into four exhaust (some £2,000 worth of exhaust!), new battery, new tyres, new stand, new wheel bearings and throttle cables, upgraded electronic ignition and has had the valves and tappets adjusted.

The engine and gearbox are extremely sweet having been rebuilt in the 90’s, though the overall mileage of just 35,000 miles is still modest for a 1970’s machine.

This bike is offered on UK registration and has a spare Touring seat as well as the one photographed.  It is now available to view in our showroom in North Yorkshire.
