Well I bought it guys for £1400. It did come with original grab rail, centre stand and all the fairing panels, so the main issue is the silencers & H pipe. Also the spare engine doesn't have an upper crankcase, but I believe that is standard GPz?

At some point in the nearish future I'll fire it up and see what happens!

Thanks for help getting me this far!

Best Regards

Mark

Cant go wrong really. Decent price and can be a good project build. Seen lot worse. Sold one looked twice as bad for 1500 last year. Did not run either needed alot of work but complete.

Be very careful with disassembly & re-assembly. theres bits like the small "cylinder" that slips up inside the clutch shaft that falls out & get a ZR7 oil pump & relief valve for it as well. The originals are shit. The clutch rubber disintegrate too so if you want to use the bike replace these as well otherwise the bits get sucked into the motor & turbo & destroy them.
You should try to know everything about something & something about everything.
