Hi All.
New to the site but not new to Kawasakis, had a few including ZXR750, ZX10B & ZX12R, currently riding a 86 GPz750 Unitrak.
I've started getting bits & pieces together to do a front end swap on my 86 GPz750 Unitrak, so far I have RWU forks & yokes from a ZX9R C1, I have swapped a GPz stem into the bottom yoke & machined spacers & the top yoke to suit, I have more bits to get but then realised the ZX9R C model is digital speedo so no mechanical drive on the front wheel.
As I'm fairly committed to my choice of fork, so my question is will a ZX6R wheel & discs with mechanical speedo drive fit the ZX9R forks ?.
I'm thinking of using a F-1286 wheel & 4pot Nissin but could do with advise on axle & discs
I will also be swapping the back wheel for a ZXR400 wheel.
Cheers.
Phil

back in 2012 the UK mag Practical Sportsbikes did a full project to turn an unloved hound of a GPz750 into a much sharper tool and I remember the ZX9R forks where part of the mix. The wheels were also swapped out, if memory serves I think the wheels you are using are the same. I still have the back issues covering the project, but wont be able to look them out until the weekend, I'll have a look and see how they sorted the digital speedo they fitted. Just to get the juices flowing I found a couple of pictures on the web for the project.

Hi ZX10 Tomcat.
This article was the inspiration for me to get started, the magazine kindly sent me the full series on this project. unfortunately they went for digital speedo but I really want to keep the GPz clocks, I'm currently looking at using a F1286 wheel but need to overcome the 17mm axle size.

Ah, I suspected as much, really cool that they sent you the full series. Sorry cant help you any further with that one, have you asked PSB for their opinion?
I thought this project was fantastic and I had the chance to see the bike in the flesh at the MCN Motorcycle show in London just prior to the mag giving it away as a prize. I remember being incensed at the time when the lucky sod who won it, sold it a few months later.
Good luck and post pictures of how you are getting on.
