Kawasaki zx400

A spin off from a previous post by RobB, I have created a forum so we can identify which model ZXR400 you have and to show different variations of colour schemes. Please feel free to post pictures to help others identify their ZXR400's but please keep them to factory std releases.

Don't forget people there is more to the zxr400 than this forum... check out www.zxrworld.co.uk also.

hi all,

newbie here, from Philippines. I recently acquired a ZR400D (Xanthus).
is it true that the engine of ZR400D is the same as ZXR400? i am new at this and i need inputs about it.
got a couple of questions about it as well.
dropped my bike a few weeks ago and the generator cover got busted. if both engines are the same, can i also use the generator for zxr400 to fit my xanthus? what is the exact model of the zxr400?
last question is, where can i get one that can be shipped in asia?
tried checking japanese website but i can't understand some of their processes in terms of ordering online.

thanks in advance...

more power to zxr400!!!

Hey guys. Just found out (Thanks Baz) that I own a 88 ZX400 and not the zxr400. Can someone please tell me what the top end is? And where can I get a manual for it? Thanks guys.

Thanks skullie. I downloaded the H and L models of here before I picked the bike up. How relative is the H manual on our bikes though? Motor is similar but as far as I can tell that is about it.

Nothing worse than having an H and not being able to scratch it !

best bet is to get a mate who can read japanese to translate for you, comercial translators charge ~8p per character...soon builds up.

Luckily my backwarmer (the missus) is fluent in Japanese. Why only she would know. Probably had a Japanese boyfriend sometime

140/60 18 you will need to get shipped from Europe

If you can squeeze a slightly higher 140/70 18 you can get them from demon tweeks, about £100
