Hello everybody.

My name is Claude and I live in Belgium near Brussels.

I collect Japanese vintage motorcycles, especially the Hondas scrambler from 1965 to 1975.

I created the site www.cb450d.com

I also have a Kawasaki 750RS Z2 from 1973.

It has frame # Z2F02831.

It was found in the USA, exported by a military based in Japan and returned to the country with his motorcycle.

It is currently in France to be restored by a Kawasaki specialist.

It should be finished and come in my collection late this year.

Nice find...but if you want some interaction about your Z2, you need to join www.Kawasaki-Z-classik.com as that site has an active Z2 section.  This site (Kawasaki Z2-750RS) may be in permanent hibernation (it'll remain on-line but won't be actively monitored by the owner).

Recently aquired a Z2 Vin # pretty high, 19832. Engine is not correct or gauges. I'm looking for a guide into restoring a late version of the Z2, 1977 to be exact, anyone point me in the right direction?

Was a sad time for me over the past month.  After owning my '75 Z2A since September, 1975, I sold it, though in the hopes that the new owner will feel the joys of this wonderous motorcycle.  For me, the joy of ownership ended in 1985 when I seriously rode it for the last time, and with only 11,xxx miles, parked it in the garage. Been dragging it around the country ever since, always with the intent of restoring it.  But as time went on, other things became priorities and I came to realize that while it was nice to own, I was not getting the joy of being able to ride it, and that perhaps there would be someone "out there" who could.  Over the years I kept it running, recently refurbished the carbs, and last Fall, rode it around the neighborhood for the final time.  It's in capable hands now. The new owner has the intent and resources to completely restore it, and for that I am glad.

So long "Frame # Z2F09857, Engine # Z2E09930"

The 73 is particularly hard to find these days. The Z2A is about 4 times more common if you are not fussed. The last 73 I saw for sale was about 4 years ago in U.K. Good luck with your search.

It is impossible to find a Z2 in the states but I have always wanted one and have looked high and low, 900's are plentiful and I have several in my collection but would really like to find a quality 73 Z2. Any sellers?

Hello David...no mud-slinging from me for owning a ZR750...although you might not receive much feedback for any questions posted about that model.  Welcome to Z750RS :)

Hi Guys,

This is a fantastic site and of great interest to me. I can't afford a Kawasaki 900 Super 4 Model Z1 (what a mouthful!) so was looking into the 750 version which I was told several years ago was a called a Z2. So now I know lots more about it!

I gave in last year and bought a ZR750 which with a lot of Doremi pattern parts will eventually have a "sort of" Z2 feel about it and I think that is the nearest I will get to a real Z2 in the UK with my budget!

Anyway my first batch of spares have just arrived so off the garage when it wams up and the conversion will start after I have done a few repairs and removed that useless alarm. If anyone is interested (and I don't get beaten up for being a heratic), I will post a few pictures during the rebuild...

For those out there with a real Z2 - I am very jealous as I owned a Z1000-A1 way back in 1977 and what a lovely bike it was. Shame I couldn't afford (as an apprentice) to run it so I had to sell it and buy a cheap Honda 500 <SOB> to get to work.

Just found this site. Wow. I bought my Z2 in the crate while I was stationed on Okinawa in the mid 70s. I wanted a Z1 900 but since uncle sam sent me to Okinawa, I settled for a Z2. This december will be 40 years that I've it. She's been stolen, recovered, hit by a car, blew up the first motor, restored, upgraded, customized, and re-painted numerous times. I presently have have a Z1R motor in it, but saved all my nippon parts including the replacement Z2 motor. Saw many sets of exhaust pipes, seats and rear fenders go straight to a dumpster back in the day as the in thing on okinawa was a yoshimura header, no rear fender, low cafe racer handlebars, corbin seat and of course custom covers by beet. We rode them hard and fast, just like the American muscle cars. Many were wrecked and thrashed. Who would have thought they would be desireable decades later. Well, I saved mine, not original but I dont care. As the old saying goes " this is my Z2, there were many like her, but this one is mine" :-)

Nope...the reproduction pipes for the Z1/KZ900 will fit your Z2.  Pretty sure that Doremi is the maker...careful who you purchase from, there are varying grades of these pipes floating around.
