This is my 1983 GPZ-550. Now has over 39,000
miles and still runs great. It is starting to get a bit tired.
With my new bike, I had the time to fix it up (fork seals, some
gaskets, steering bearings) No major problems.
This is a classic sportbike; in fact, one of the originals.
Maybe someday I'll be able to run it in a Vintage Class race.
I still ride it a bit. The new bike is nicer to ride. But, if
there is a ride-in, I'll take this one as it is much more interesting
for others to see. Besides, even after 22 years it is still a
blast to ride.
Modifcations include: Kerker exhaust, K&N filters
and jetting kit. Raask bars and rear-sets.
Recently I found an 1982 GPz550 on ebay. Could not
resist at $95. Was originally intended as a parts bike, but I
think I will restore it. My success with the ZX600 has given
me confidence to paint both GPz's and make them look brand new.
After 18 years with the old GPZ, I finally got something
newer. This is my new-to-me 2001 ZX-6R. This is an amazing bike.
Rides like it weighs almost nothing. Amazing power for a 600cc
Modifications: Muzzi exhaust, jet kit, K&N filter
and adjustable timing advancer. Should be near 100HP at the rear
This bike is sweet. Hopefully I can get it on a track.
It is almost too fast for street use ;). Have had speedo to 167
This is a 1986 ZX600 I picked up for my sister. It was a basket
case and a lot of work to restore. But was fun to do.
Check Out the ZX600 Project
Both bikes are a blast to ride. I especially love taking them
up into the Georgia and North Carolina mountains. This is where
these smaller bikes just shine.
