  • 1990 ZXR750H2 Period 6 Formula 750 race build.

    I picked up this Kawasaki 1990 ZXR750H2 last week.
    This is her condition at collection:






    This is her condition now (there's a lot more work to come):







    A cross between these 2 is more or less the end product I’m looking for:

      Unfortunately, not a chance, I won't be in the country for the first round.
      I'm hoping to have her ready later in the year for shakedown/practice and be log booked/racing her next season.
      I'll be running the '94 ZX6R in Rule 20 when my roster lines up.

            ^^^ I've been to broke and too busy to race before now. Still feeling that way but am looking at how to do it for the fairly near future. Born in the early 1960s, I'm thinking that historics might be a term used to describe me and the bikes I'm most interested in. Things from the '70s and '80s are attracting my attention, and if I watch you do something up from scratch, maybe I'll learn something.

            Also I'm developing a bike accessories outlet, and the more I know about what's god and what you'd never touch, the better I can serve the customer etc etc etc

              Join the club , I'm a late 50's edition myself.
              The HCMC put on excellent race meetings (as do the MCRC) and it can be reasonably cheap racing.
              With the demise of Rule 20 at the end of 2015, Period 6 seemed the best bet for me.
              There are some reasonably priced bikes out there, GSXR's, ZXR's.
              I'm expecting this one to be on track and race kitted for around $4,000.
              The motor and gearbox are in excellent condition, the major outlay will be on
              frame works, suspension, rear sets, race glass, tyres and the like.
              Of course, there's the paint work and as I can't/won't paint, I'll be paying for that.

                I've been up to Collie for a bit of a look a few times.

                A couple of years ago I marshalled at PI and there was a guy in the historics campaigning a 500 Pantah, having a ball and coming about mid field, which given the front was populated by guys like Robbie Phyllis was a pretty fair effort. Really got me thinking. I'm suspicious that keeping a 1980s wog bike running sweetly takes a bit more expertise than I have though, so Jap seems the go.

                      Not at this stage, the main aim is to get her on track, reliable and close to budget.

                          Some progress has been made, mostly stripped and inspected.
                          Had time for a fair bit of blasting and painting.
                          The great parts wait has begun

                            Hey didn't the H2 have a braced swingarm?
                            Click here to see my Ducati 999R in the PSB garage... You'll love it!

                            Don't click here to see my ZX9R aka The Ginger Ninja... there's no link!

                              No, the H1 (1989) had one.
                              The H2 (1990) went to the 'diamond' arm.
