Any reason for sticking with a four stroke?
Plenty of fun 2 stroke twins also

I already have a two stroke, my boy doesn't want one!

For shame John,
A banshee/rz powered flat tracker would be the tits.

This is a teaching opportunity.

Build the boy a bad ass smoke show. And, tell him 'You don't always get what you want, you get what you need.'

Ok I'm watching a kz750 right now it's a 1978 with spoked wheels and disc front and rear so I think I could lace up 19" rims to those hubs :)  Does anyone know if the geometry is the same for all the kz750 models, the one I'm looking at has a cruiser look to it?
I found this as inspiration for the kz!

  • Oh the usual... I bowl, I drive around...
small difference to the passenger pegs, and brackets over the years.
81+ have lower sub frame  top rails for the cruiser seat. I think the 76-79 were the "sportiest"  the biggest differences are

'76-'79  - 26.5 rake  105mm trail
'80 -        27 rake   110 trail
'81+  -      28.5 rake   112 trail


but those numbers also could have been manipulated by the wheel and fork changes they did so who knows.

I think the biggest bummer about the kz750 twin is the limited aftermarket support for the motors. There is some but not alot of options. No pistons.

Yes that's the biggest issue for sure!

Nice TZ based tracker.  That's a full on TZ race motor with dry clutch and it's a TZ radiator as well. I can't tell what the pipes are but the mufflers appear to be Swarbrick.  Sweet.  Almost as sweet as JohnU's T500.
