This is a very tidy resto-mod Kawasaki GPZ-550(ZX550-A2). These are amazing machines for their size with lots of fun to be had in town or on the freeway. Their light-weight gives them incredible handling and makes them great bikes for new riders or shorter folks alike.
This cycle was totally restored by the previous owner over the last two years before they trading it in to us at the shop. The amount of work performed and the attention to detail is quite extensive.
The top end of the motor has been rebuilt with the valves being re-lapped, a nice aftermarket Krueger manual cam-chain tensioner, and new gaskets throughout. The compression is excellent showing PSI of 149, 148, 149, 148 respectively.
The bodywork has been repainted in the factory styled black with metal flake paint and sports new replica decals and logos.
This bike features a lovely period-correct Yoshimura exhaust system which has been refinished and sounds amazing - header wrap completes the look. The TK carburetors have been fully rebuilt with K&L kits and jetting to match the pod filters and exhaust, and of course new fuel and vacuum hoses.
The clutch has been rebuilt with fresh plates and springs. New drive chain and Sunstar sprockets. Front & rear calipers have been rebuilt with new stainless steel braided brake lines from Galfer along with a new front master cylinder filled with synthetic DOT 4 fluid.
The front forks have been rebuilt with new seals and progressive springs along with the anti-dive delete kit by Fast From The Past.
For the electrical the turn signals are all brand new Emgo replicas, including a brand new battery. The spark plugs, wires, and plug caps are all new NGK. The headlight has a removable yellow sticker on-top for aesthetics.
The handlebars have been swapped for some nice adjustable clip-ons which have a quality CRG branded bar-end mirror (not cheap eBay junk).
The tires are new Pirelli Sport Demons which look and feel excellent.
For the foot controls the bike features a lovely set of genuine adjustable Tarozzi rear-sets which look great and really complete the look nicely.
The results are this lovely collector worthy machine with subtle tweaks to set it apart as something special.
Overall the bike runs great, looks sharp, and is ready to be loved for years to come.
A huge stash of spare and original parts in included with the sale.
