i am a proud owner of a 1984 zn700, and have read in numerous places that the 1984 and 1985's are very rare because of the harley tariff. does anyone actually know how many of these were manufactured?

The Harley tariff is the sole reason for the existence of the 84 and 85 700 :)

The Harley Tariff was a tax on bikes 750cc and larger, so the Japanese motorcycle companies produced 700cc bikes to beat the tariff.

Parts are readily available since the 750 parts work, and they don't seem that rare.
