  1. 1998 Kawasaki ZX9R - SOLD!!

    Hey Guys,

    As much as I don't want to sell, my circumstances dictate that I have to move this quickly.

    I have a 98 Green ZX9R for sale. If you're looking for a bike that will do everything from Sportriding and Commuting to Long distance touing then this is the bike for you!

    Its a great bike and has served me well over the past year both touring and day to day commuting. However it did go for a slide down the road in the wet (bloody tram tracks) causing superficial damage to the LHS fairing. I can provide a contact who has a replacement mid-fairing for $70 if required. I could just never be bothered worrying about it.

    The Good:

    * The C1 ZX9 engine is essentially bulletproof. Do your research, this engine will outlive most of us.

    * Rebuilt front calipers

    * Near new Brembo pads

    * Braided Galfer front lines

    * Rebuilt front Master Cylinder

    * Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres around 90% new

    * Comfy as all fcuk to ride

    * Approx 6 months rego left

    * Yoshi pipe

    * Original Pipe also supplied

    * 3 Month Old Sprockets and Chain

    * Only 55*** ks! (these things have been known to go well past 200***ks!)

    The Not-So Good:

    * LHS fairing scratched up. Not bad but if you're finicky then this isn't the bike for you. The drop was in a torrential thunder/hailstorm so it just slid for a while with minimal damage.

    * Carbies could use a cleanout. I'd do it but don't have the time or money. I've been quoted ~ $350 for a full cleanout but you could do it yourself easily enough.

    This bike is a steal at $3500 ono.

    I paid nearly 6k for it last November. I'm taking into account the scratched fairing and the carby clean that it will need soon. You can get a complete new fairing set if needed for ~ $500 on ebay or get a full repair and respray for around the same price.

    For $3500 this is a steal.

    PM me to arrange an inspection. Test rides welcome with a "you bin it, you bought it" policy understandably in place.

    Located in Avondale Heights. Here are the most recent photos I have. As you can see shes in good condition, I need to move this asap!
