I am interested in buying a Kawasaki 750 twin, I think they were made in the seventies and eighties.
I am quite confused about the designations: Z750, Z750 b, KZ750, 750 LTD...
Are these all the same?
I would be very grateful if someone could clarify this for me. Maybe links to sites with explanations and à overview?
I haven't noticed any 750-4s with the CSR trim, only the twins, which is why I have that theory. I think you're right that it's nothing more than another way to say LTD but for the 750 it seems they saved LTD for the 4s? The 750 twin seems to be kind of a bastard child.
The guy seemed to know his stuff. The ass end does seem pretty low compared to other bikes. I wouldn't think a few degrees of engine tilt would bother it any. I was going to put longer springs on to see how it did but probably won't with the new plans I have for it.
I was comparing part numbers for frames on the powersportsplus microfiche and it shows LTDs and CSRs share frames but standard models do not. So it could be a different neck angle.
In addition to the 1976 - 1979 standard model twins and the 1982 KZ750-CSR Twin (M1) Kawasaki made the 1980 KZ750-LTD II (G1) and the 1983 KZ750-LTD Belt (K1) which were also 2-cylinder bikes. They also made a 1984 KZ750-K2 (Canada Only). So they actually made 8 twin models (also, there may be other non-North American models not shown on their site). It would be interesting to know the total number of twins produced. Ed
