I have been looking for a project bike and came across a 1980 kz750(T) 2 cylinder in running condition. Its supposed to run well. I have seen it and it looks old. Probably a good restoration project. needs new speedo, tires, chain/sprockets, paint, etc.

Are the parts on the twin models interchangable with the kz650 and 750 4's?(like speedometer and frame parts) Are parts for this model going to be difficult to find?

The owner is also selling his 80 kz1000. Same kinda thing, supposed to run well but pretty rough looking. He is asking $800 for the twin and$1000 for the 1000. I am looking at the twin because i'm only going to use it for transportation on a small island(i have an 86 zx900 for the long hauls) and i have never rebuilt a motor, figure 2 might be easier than 4 when she blows. Should i consider the 1000, is it that much better, and are parts alot more available?

hi guys am a newbie to this forum

just a reply and a g,day from australia
i just restored and sold a 78 750 twin the b3 model
the missus is daggers at me for selling it it took a few years to do ,was time for a new challenge ,
to the post re a 650 and 750 twin ,yes there was both the 650 early 70,s late 60,s was the wsa 650 looked like a bsa rocket
the later ones were in the 90,s down here very much same as the first ones ,a lot more refined though , not in production anymore didnt really take off
parts wise a lot was similiar as z900 ,z750 as in switch gear ,front end was same a 900 early ones ,guages switches same as some models
will post a pic of my last one when i work out how \in the market for another twin down here now
bought a modern i guess for me a 93 fj1200 oooo ouch i know not the yam --- word
not really happy with it mainly the riding position cramps me up i am getting older i guess ,so maybe time to do up another twin
cheers graeme :newyear:

Hey guys!
I started a project with a friend and we picked up a Kawasaki kz750b engine.
The guy we got the engine from took out the starter motor for one of his projects.
Where could we get a similar cheap starter motor from that'll do the job?

I would search EB. Probably all 750-Twins used the same starter motor or virtually the same, since the engine was pretty much unchanged through the entire model run thru 1984. The cross-reference at Partzilla would come in handy to see what other models used the same starter.
