This KZ650 was a completed custom when I bought it five years ago, but I wanted to go in a slightly different direction. I have since lost interest (too many bikes, too many other projects, too many kids). Tires were new Dunlops then; they are same ones on it now, with no additional use.
This week I installed a new Yuasa battery and fresh gas, and got it running again. It's leaking some fuel from the fuel junction, but otherwise starts, idles, revs cleanly, choke works, etc.. Lights and gauges, including oil pressure light, all work. It needs a strap or other mounting setup to hold down the KZ1000P tank (stock KZ650 tank is included too).
Wheels have been powder coated/painted and are very nice stock cast aluminum units. If you can find them! The period Kerker exhaust system, also hard to find, is in good shape and sounds killer!
The fuel cap on the KZ1000P tank is new and includes two keys for the locking cap. Many nicks and scratches, but perfect for an urban bomber, once completed. I will not crate the bike, but I will meet your shipper if needed. Here's a recent video of the bike running.At the end, when I shut it off and turn the ignition switch back on, it is just to show that the oil pressure warning light is functioning properly.. 1980 Kawasaki KZ650 project - YouTube.
