Getting the best from the ZX-7R
Kawasaki’s ZX-7R was created six years ago to give the firm a basis for World Superbike racing. This year, the effervescent and ever-popular Chris Walker is racing one.
But so are hundreds of ordinary riders on trackdays. Thousands more are busy bolting a wide selection of goodies on to their bikes. Some will be functional, some fashionable, but all will cost money.
So let MCN show you the ZX-7R’s ultimate tweaks, picking the very best products and information from the masses available.
We reveal the best bolt-ons, from carbon eye-candy to full race exhausts and superbike brake kits. They’ve been chosen on the advice of 7R owners contacted through motorcyclenews.com.
We’ll also show you how to set up your suspension for use on the track and the road – whatever your weight – and talk to tuners and dyno houses about the best ways of squeezing more power from the ever-willing motor.
Don’t fiddle with your ZX-7R until you’ve read this.
Pick for yourself
We teamed up with bike accessory mail order specialist Demon Tweeks to show you all the best bolt-on goodies for the ZX-7R.
The firm stocks the top parts for most other superbikes, too. Copies of its latest catalogue are being given away free with MCN over the next few weeks. If you can’t wait for that, call the firm on 01978 664474.
That must be old news--Walker (like everyone else) is racing a Ducati now.
