The 98 is the same as 99 zx9. This is very doable. What you would have to do is move the motor mounts down farther on the frame. The mounts on the zx7 are in front of the cylinder jugs and behind the jugs on the zx9. The 94-97 is more of a drop in. The motor mounts are in front of the jugs but they are of by a few mm. The only problem with the is they are becoming harder to find. I think that once someone dose a newer 9 conversion it will become as popular as the older 9. The newer 9 has more power potential and a larger supporting market.

They did not FI the 9. If i remember right the first FI bike was the 6 and 10. I have put the FI throttle bodies from a 03 6 on my 92 7.

If i remember, they came from a 99 zx7. I also have 99 forks and brake wave rotors. A lot of tokico calipers are the same. You can get them from a bandit, gsxr, tl1000, zx9, zx7 and a few others. Here is a good site for using the on the older zx7 forks http://homepage.ntlworld.com/webzxr/zxr750r/ .
That's exactly some of the stuff I was looking for, too! Excellent...
