Well I've gone and done it. I bought another bike. SHe's really sweet tho'.
76 KZ900, 26K miles, Garage kept in Texas most of it's life.
Sooo geeked to pick it up.
But I have a couple of questions, hopefully domeboady can help.
Is this bike a 2 stroke?
A guy I know was spouting off tha he had one, back in the day, and it got poor mileage and had a shimmy over 65.Is this typical?
And finally, what kind of problems, if any, should I expect from this bike in particular?
I dunno how to post a pic of it here or I woulda.

KZ 900 LTD

If you just bought a 1976 KZ 900 Ltd you just bought a four stroke great bike. It was the bike of my dreams and last week I finally found a 1977 KZ 1000 LTD which was the next years model. The 1976 KZ 900 LTD is quite rare as it was only made for one year and then the engine size was increased to 1000 cc. I would be interested to see pictures of it when you you get it. One other question I have is wht did you buy it if you didn't know if it were 2 or 4 stroke. You have purchased my dream bike and weren't sure of what it was. I have been looking for that bike for years. The bike I did buy tho is in mint shape so that was a plus. You bought a gret bike and I am hoping to hear from you again.....Congratulations......Sheem
