Yes, $9,350 Greg.
Question Greg? Z1R front fork legs? Partszilla says they are 78 -80 only Z1R
How do they differ from a standard KZ900 / KZ1000? 36mm
Different length? I am selling a set of standard forks, have a question from someone wanting to know if they would work on a 78 Z1R.
Thanks

FYI - Twin disc Z650 lowers are the same as Z1R ( the 650 stanctions are 1" shorter).
The only difference is the wire circlip above the bush in the 650 lower.
The casting has the same number on the wheel side near the mudguard mount.
It's either K207 or K204 . Can't remember which as it's been ages since i had a stock one.
All the 650/ 900/1015 bikes use the same stanction diameter and the lowers can be swapped.
Bushes are like hens teeth to find unless someone started making them again.
When I wanted some for mine about 18 years ago they were NLA and the original Japanese manufacturer wanted a minimum order of 50 thousand.

This is only speculation ok . $9350 plus buyers fee @ 10% = $10,285.00 plus shipping back to Wisc and now pay another 10% ebay fees on each item . . I guess the bike is worth more parted out.

Look for yourself but mr I don't part out bikes is parting it out
see the other items listed I say same bike , not to many Z1R turbo bikes out there with white headers. Parts must pay good

Good eye Greg! You're totally right. The CALFAB swingarm is in another auction, and it's definitely from that bike.

I'd buy some of those parts, but he blocked me a while ago for complaining about the comically terrible packing job he did on a part (the box was smaller than the part). So it goes.

Mecum web results are fee inclusive. Sales tax applies, unless you are a dealer.
In person, I was not impressed. It was a mish-mash of pieces,and I doubt the bike ran well. Parting out is the best chance at making a profit on this bike in the buyers opinion.
