First bike, new rider

Recently picked up my first bike, a 1975 Kz400. It has a few issues but was an amazing deal for the price. The previous owner hacked it into a pretty lazy interpretation of a cafe racer, crudely inverted bars and all but im thrilled to have it. Anyone reading this have any experience with the older twins? Amongst other things I'm having trouble identifying the submodel.

According to the list of models for 1975 at Partzilla there was KZ400-D & 400-S Special.
CycleChaos.com has frame & engine number info for a number of Kawasaki motorcycles.
If you don't have the Kawasaki service manual, you might be able to find one on eebbaayy.
