It's a 7; not even close to a 750. Are those Metzeler Roadtec tires? Bike Bandit is selling those for $80 apiece right now. I was going to buy some, but I was worried they might be old date code since I see them on closeout at Revzilla. I went with the new T31 Bridgestones.

Unfortunately I have odd tyres fitted. Not ideal but they are both pretty fresh so I’ll run them this year as I won’t be riding hard. Not been in the saddle for 5 years....

Thanks for the pointer. It’s certainly a long way off original.

It’s been suggested this is a z750 but when looking at photos of zr7 and z750’s, the engine looks to have a different top side.

Will check the bearings out too, thanks for the pointer on the rear end. I’ll swap it around sometime.
Not a z750 for sure. They were fuel injected and water cooled. Yours is carb'ed and air/oil cooled. Zr7 & 7s's were made up to 2005 in Canada (2003 most elsewhere.) Z750's were made 2004-2012

Here's Ol' Red today before a short ride on new tires. Still basically stock and never kept too clean, but I do still have the Nitron shock and RaceTech front forks. Zero Gravity touring screen, Go Cruise clamp, Tusk power outlet and battery pigtail, that aluminum tail tidy (I forgot the name) and all LED signal lighting. I swapped out the six year old Battlax 023's for the new T31's this week.

Then and Now

My Trusty ZR-7S, circa 2013 or so, and her subsequent replacement, a 2014 Honda CBR-650f.

I acquired the ZR new in 2002 and put just about 60,000 miles on her prior to getting the Honda. I got the Honda in January of 2015 and it currently has 20,000 miles on it. A good substitute for the ZR, very similar in its all around capabilities.

GUMP!! You're still here! Awesome. I stopped in here a couple times over the past 10 years or so, but other stuff took over most of my free time, so it wasn't often like back in the early 2000s. Lots of changes, but I now visit somewhat regularly to see what's new. Good to see you are still around, and still on two wheels!

J'aime l'échappement plus élevé sur votre vélo.

I like the higher exhaust on your bike.
