Back in 2015 I sold my old and slightly battered ZX7R

http://s19.postimg.org/glp12vyir/IMAG0186.jpg

I crashed it on track, managed to replace the front fairing and plastic weld the side panel to a "good enough" state, but it was running horribly fueling wise, even after going back to a stock system. I decided to sell it and rid myself of the burden. I have been pining since.

I have owned a couple of bikes in the mean time, a 2013 Street Triple R and a ZRX1200R, but I decided that all I wanted was another ZX7R.

So after my ZRX going tuesday, I picked this up yesterday. here it is before I rode it home.

Loads of service history, 23k on the clock, completely standard aside the stainless exhaust, dark double bubble and spazzos (which I'll probably change to originals).

It runs lovely, the brakes astonishingly work very well, my previous 6 pots were hanging and I decided it was cheaper to replace with Nissin 4 pots than service the 6 pots with new seals, this didn't stop me rebuilding them completely, but it didn't help much.

Not sure what else to say, but I'm back in love with bikes again Thumbs Up

Looks great!

There was a guy on here with that paint scheme (was his name killa?), and he took the stickers off the side panels.

It looked great, but the bike looks great either way.

Hope you enjoy it.

EDIT: yup, i've found it: http://www.zxforums.com/forums/zx-7r-forum/7997-ok-guys.html

That bike always stuck in my head for some reason.

I also think they look great in green and white.

What happened to Killa anyway?
I remember reading his entertaining bike history chapters, wishing I could write something as interesting.

The last bike I remember him having was the black/yellow ZX7R.
