Look what I've got Very Happy
Many thanks to strokerboy for finding it for me Wink





The homologation special - "K1" model - was built, but in limited numbers. This was the ZXR750R . The race version had the same frame as the J models, but it sported 39mm Keihin Flatslide carburettors, full power engine, close ratio gearbox, alloy tank, fully adjustable suspension front and rear, single seat and was 5kg lighter than the J models.

A very original bike, unmodified, with supporting paperwork. Couldn't be happier with it Love

a JDM K1 model...



there is also a KIS-ARM sticker on the left hand side of swingarm (like appeared on the 250 and 400)
and the chassis numbers start with J not K (JPN) as per export models

stickers...
56050-1555 Kawasaki Back Torque Limiter
56050-1633 KIS-ARM

I believe the wheel part numbers were different to the street model (maybe accounting for small part of 5kg weight reduction)
the M and N 750R shared the same wheel as the regular ZXR

the M has an alloy tank also but the N doesn't ?

Beautiful bikes - being a Kawasaki fan it's the 750 I would want first (oh and then a RC30... Ok I'm too common and predictable !)

Unbelievable at the minute though - like bus's not seen one for ages and then in a week.. three have changed hands (two of those here Mr Rob and Mr Danny)

Hope to see yours Rob at one of the shows / track days or ride outs
Lovely lovely bikes Thumbs Up

just got hold of some Service Specifications Handbook(s) of the period...
comparitive dry weights of the ZXR750

L 205 kg

M 200.5 kg [Calif.]
M 200 kg

H 200.5 kg [Calif.]
H 200kg

J 195.5 kg [Calif.]
J 195 kg
J 194 kg [Aust.][Jap.]

K 190.5 kg [Calif.]
K 190 kg
K 188 kg [Jap.] <<<- the K difference here most likely down to different tyres


p.s. the '92 KR-1S was apparently a C4
