1981 KAWASAKI KZ750
« on: October 09, 2012, 02:12:20 pm »
Picked up a very nice very clean KZ this past week. Only has 14,xxx miles on it. Someone has taken VERY good care of this bike. Not sure what i am going to do with it, if anything other then keeping it stock??

It is a clean looking bike! I'm afraid you're not going to be able to "keep it stock" as those don't appear to be the stock mufflers on there.

Nice find though!

I think it's the baffles that aren't stock as they have been removed. If you want to be technical about it.

Thanks! It is a really clean bike. Couldnt pass it up. Have new pics i need to get uploaded. Changed to handle bars with pro-tapers and got a new 4-2 Mac exhaust. Had the turn outs on it but cut the turn outs off.

 Larry is correct. It is the stock exhaust with the baffles cut out. Why they wanted so darn loud i cant figure out lol But have recently bought new exhaust for it ( for time being ) Mac 4-2 Mac exhaust. I wanted Kerker but there on back order everywhere. Once i can get my hands on a Kerker thats prolly what ill get.

I'm a little worried that 50 Ft won't be enough..... thought about marking it at 25 ft and seeing how far I can go than just matching it up on the other side

Okay.

That just triggers that sense of humor too.
