I've finally taken the time to register (long overdue) but since I retired four years ago, I've been having a great time returning a couple KZ's to proper functionality. Thus, I've decided its time to join the club (so to speak. My first rebuild was a 1978 KZ650D1SR, which has been a great ride. I spent a year on the project. My second project was a 1980 KZ750, which I just completed after 18 months work. In 1980 it started life as a KZ750E1, but over the years, owners swapped parts so that it was a mixture of KZ750E and KZ750H. It's been returned to KZ750E form, which is only proper:) I'm looking for my next project bike, so I'm planning to use the forum to see which bikes members have had the greatest challenges working on to help me decide. FRom what I've seen, the members of this forum are a great group.

Welcome aboard. Any pictures of your finished bikes?

As to challenges, here is my list, ymmv.

Any motorcycle left outside near salt water for 20-30 years.

Any unfinished project.

KZ1300 - some unique systems like twin choke carburetors. Some hard to find parts.

Fuel injected KZs

The little ones. Not complicated, but some parts are a challenge to find.
1982 KZ1000 LTD parts donor
1981 KZ1000 LTD awaiting resurrection
2000 ZRX1100 not ridden enough
