Hello.

I have some trouble identifying my bike and to find a matching wiring diagram, it is my first bike and my first stumblings as a mechanic so perhaps im just overlooking something obvious..

anyway, My owners mnual says I have a 1982 kawasaki Z750LTD Twin.
Its registerd as a
1982 KAWASAKI Z 750-S1/LTD.

The diffrent model prefix codes and letters confuse me as i dont know the diference between them and i cant seem to find a diagram that match my bikes electrical harness..

Could you guys help me out, mainly with the correct wiring diagram and secondly, gör nu curiositys sake explain the model prefix thing?!

What country are you in? I'm guessing you're somewhere in Europe.
A KZ750 would be a USA or North American model. A Z750 would be Europe or elsewhere.
The 82 Kawasaki 750 Twin service manual may cover your model,
and it may have a European wiring diagram as they are usually different from USA wiring diagrams.

In the USA there was an 82 KZ750-M1 CSR Twin (chain drive). later there were the 83-84 KZ750-K1/K2 Ltd Twins (belt drive).

Note: the KZ prefix was only used in the USA or North America. KZ has some sort of nazi connotation, so they didn't use that in Europe. The letter & number suffix is used to differentiate between models & years. A 750-M1 is a Twin. that was the only year for the model, but if there had been an 83 750-CSR, it would have been designated an M2. M1 is the 1st year of the model & M2 would have been the 2nd year if it had been made.

See model application chart on back cover. The KZ750-S1 & Y1 are listed. I don't know anything about those two.

Although silly, I keep the KZ750 twin models identified by using the acrostic phrase:
My Kawasaki By God.


Kawasaki KZ750 750cc 4-cycle twins
1976 Kawasaki KZ750-B1
1977 Kawasaki KZ750-B2
1978 Kawasaki KZ750-B3
1979 Kawasaki KZ750-B4
1980 Kawasaki KZ750-G1
1982 Kawasaki KZ750-M1
1983 Kawasaki KZ750-K1
1984 Kawasaki KZ750-K2


Per KZr member, steell:
76-79 KZ750 were the "B" model, single disc front and rear with wire spoke wheels.
1980 KZ750G, pretty much the same as the "B", but with rear drum brake and mag wheels.
1981 model 750 twin doesn't exist.
1982 KZ750M1 CSR, same motor as the "B" and "G", with air injection into the exhaust, with wire wheels and rear drum brake.
1983 KZ750K1, same as M1 except for belt drive.
1984 KZ750K2, Canada only, same as K1.

Per KZr member,TexasKZ:
The K1 and K2 (LTD) had mag wheel

Good Fortune! :)
1973 Z1
KZ900 LTD

Yes I live in Europe, Sweden to be precise.

would be interesting to know the diference between the m/s/y-1 considering they all are manufactured in 82

I was going to guess Sweeden as I think someone here on KZR mentioned that the S1 was sold there.
Try comparing your bike to the KZ750-M1 CSR. My guess is that it is almost the same as the S1.
The csr had wire spoked wheels. see photo on front cover of manual above.

The original owners book has a fold out colour wiring diagram, the clymer manuals have them too.

There are sometimes minor errors, in my experience, usually around wire colours,
1980 Gpz550 D1, 1981 GPz550 D1. 1982 GPz750R1. 1983 z1000R R2. all four aces
