Does anyone know what the standard final drive gearing would be for my 1/94 Australian Model? I have a Haynes manual, but it's not mentioned.

Online parts catalogs list 15, 16 and 17 tooth front and 44T rear.

TIA.

JTSprockets list the ‘93-95 Zx7R L-model as having 16/44 gearing. No mention of region so it may be the same for all markets.

Later, Doug

You should try 17t/40t combo. Never have to shift out of 2nd.

Looks like the bike I just bought still has the original chain and sprockets on it :oops:. Only 25,000km on the clock but the chain is rusted and seized in a few spots.

Lil bit of wd40 will free it up and it'll be good as new.

92.......

Replace a chain that has binds. Chains are cheap. You cannot replace your left leg.
I'm sorry. I'll stop.

Don't be like me and have a titanium rod with 4 screws holding it together. It's not from a chain. It's from a motorcycle accident that happened to me 10 years ago.

All jokes aside. The chain and sprockets should be replaced as a set. Also, I was serious about the 17/40 sprocket combo. It's what I have currently on my se7en. I'm not saying you have to try it. It's more a food-for-thought suggestion.
