the down 1 on front and up a few on back is correct. the reason the ZX7 doesn't wheelie as well or easilly is due to the steering head geometry. it was designed with more bias on the front wheel to aid in steering. you will note that the ZX7 doesn't come with nor need a steering damper. this is due to the rake being more than a Gixxer or Yamaha. doesn't cause tank slappers or even a woble when accelerating hard and going over bumpy roads. the side effect is that it doesn't wheelie as readilly as some would like. the benefit is a planted front end in corners and the ability to role on a bit more throttle sooner for better corner exits. all this was done in hopes of World Titles and when first applied back in 93 or 94 it worked. Kawasaki won titles with the new ZX7R. hope this helped.

they usually recomment that if you want 2 teeth down on front to go one on front and up 2 on the back to save the chain and sprocket life.
