| Other than a small dent under the Second Look bra and a crack in the right side fairing, nothing else was wrong with the bike. It came with a tinted windscreen, full Muzzy stainless exhaust and Bridgestone Battleaxe tires. Although some people hate Bridgestones, I have no problem with them, other than that they feel a little slippery sometimes. They are adequate for street riding. I love the sound of the Muzzy exhaust. It has a distinctive note, different than Yoshimura or other brands. Not necessarily better, but you can tell who is coming when the ZX7 is on the gas. I installed flush mount turn signals in the front that I ordered from Lockhart-Philips. I also cut off the back fender/license plate mount and made a smaller one from sheet aluminum. I attached carbon fiber look mini turn signals to this, also from Lockhart-Philips. So far I have had lots of fun on the bike. The only thing I haven't really liked about it is the seating position. It is one of the most uncomfortable rockets I have ever ridden. Do not buy this bike for sport touring, although it is fine for just riding around. I have ridden it for two hours on the interstate to Platteville and it is not fun at all.
All in all, a great bike, if you stick to its intended purpose of getting outside in the summer, ripping stuff up and generally looking cool. (2-26-02)
I sold the ZX7 in March of 2002. The economics of higher education became a priority.
