1981 Kawasaki Kz250 on 2040-motos
Kawasaki KZ250 description
Up for sale is a 1981 Kawasaki KZ250 rare collectible motorcycle in good condition with only 7600 miles. This bike is an oldie, but a goodie. I took it for a spin after getting it running, and it shifts well, and accelerates as expected. The more I work on it the more I just want to keep it for myself. It has room on the seat and foot pegs for the passenger.
Parts recently replaced or restored to working order:
I am not a motorcycle specialist (so don't expect too much), but I will try to provide you with an honest description. Please refer to the condition description below, and also look at the pictures
Typical wear as would be found on a bike from 1981. Probably sat in sun for some years. Front tire has severe radial cracks, will eventually need to be replaced. Rear tire has a couple of small cracks. There is a whining noise in the speedometer. Gas tank has some light rust. Frame has light rust in places, but is sound. Hardware to attach front brake cable to front brake is missing, but temporarily connected. Engine runs well. Transmission shifts well. Front suspension seems to be soft. Keyed seat lock does not seem to work. Helmet locks do work. General light pitting of chrome. All lights function and instruments function, except a switch that might be missing on the right handlebar. I don't know what it is supposed to control....maybe the air conditioner? :0)
If you have any questions, please ask. I would be more than happy to answer your questions about this bike.
What you get in this auction..... 1 neato-awesome collectible motorcycle with a clear title, and the potential for lots of enjoyment!
I cannot ship it, so you'll have to either arrange your own shipping, or come and get it yourself.

Kawasaki is issuing a recall for the Concours 14 for a rear brake pedal issue the company had previously tried to fix in 2008. According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, road debris can get trapped between the brake pedal and a pedal guard, causing slight pressure on the rear brakes. The rear brake drag can cause the brakes to overheat, potentially leading to brake damage, a rear brake lockup or failure of the rear brakes.
