thats my quality control uncle rico, he makes sure everything i get is black enough.sounds like you've got some cool projects, would love to see whatever pictures you might have! more importantly though, super cute cat, love those eyes
i honestly just plan on blowing this front end apart through abuse, i started looking real good for 88 rm250 parts for the front end. and yeah the 80s design is heard, and seen. are sv or zr7s shocks the same length as stock?Welcome! Put some LEDs in that thing so you have enough juice to run the grips. Good brakeline up front will make a big difference as will shortening the fork springs and adding a spacer to make up the difference. SV650 or ZR-7S shock for cheap. 2-1/2 turns on the pilots. Valve adjust as practical since the exhausts tighten up. The valves will never be quiet, though.
I have no complaints about the ZR-7S shock. Best, most affordable suspension upgrade I've found. I was under the impression that shock OAL is the same between EX and ZR, but that the increased spring rate (450 lb/in) is what raises the rear ride height. It might be both reasons, actually. All that I know is that it quickens steering perceptibly with no loss of stability. Probably costs more used than an SV650 shock, but is a direct fit and a higher grade shock to begin with.The ZR7s shock is good to go for - there is a right up somewhere on the forum for it. I have an aftermarket shock for a ZR&S on mine, just needed a couple of 1mm spacer washers for the top mount but other than that bolts right in. The shock is 10mm longer so will lift the rear ~30mm (just over an inch).
Well this piece of junk has weak spark help me out! And when she will fire she's cherry has factory pilot and mains, 2.5 turns out, clean air mod as per Andy's tech tips, and I just can't get it to come down In temp on cyl 4.Your ZX-7R is in better shape than mine.
I got mine a couple of years ago as a project, as I've always loved the ZX-7, especially the first model in '89 with the vaccum-cleaner-hose air ducts.. Unfortunately, I've just not had time to do anything with it yet.
