Looks like you MIGHT need header all the way back. Looks like they just welded the pipes onto midpipe which is one piece with header.

Looks more like a Zr7. Not the ZX7.

+1 on the ZX6E
Take a good look at the frame and front forks. That looks to have been crashed to me. I think either the forks or the frame is bent, but I can't tell by the photo.If that's the case I would pass on that bike unless you want to start your motorcycling experience by completely tearing down and rebuilding a bike.

Dear davidw38901,

As far as we know it hasn't been wrecked, it's been dropped and the plastic has been broke, that's it as far as we know.

That what I got from asking if its been wreaked...
What do you think 2fat2fly after looking at the other pics

anytime i get a "as far as we know" from a seller i run that through my decoder ring to interpret "we think so but nobody will admit to it so just trust us and buy it sucker"

in fact my first bike the local seller said pretty much the same thing so as a new guy to bikes I was like. oh.. ok.. i'll trust you.. foolish i was.. was a good thing i loved that bike as much as I did considering the amount of cash i dumped into her fixing bent and broken items due to a laydown and general neglect.

find a bike locally for your first bike. Talk to some friends who ride and are willing to help you with the process and to ask the right questions and hopefully examine the bike with you and provide guidance.

and that bike in the link looks like a 6e.

I checked the bike and the title and yes the vin numbers match, it is a 1999 ZXE-and no it's not bent.
Got this...,

I don't know for sure one way or the other by the pictures. To me the front wheel looks too close to the lower fairing. It MIGHT be the angle of the photo or it MIGHT be something is bent. If I were buying from just pictures I would pass.

don't waste your money on this! that bike is messed up- the front is squashed and the rear tail overhangs way past the rear tire- if you're not 110% sure about it than theres probably a reason. take the money you're gonna sink into it and buy a good bike. just because the title is clear doesn't mean it wasn't crashed- just means it wasn't reported
