1983 Kawasaki GPz550


Reliable, superb handler


Head stem bearings.

General Comments:

The bike of early 83. Superb handling 550cc hot rod, AMA handle bar set up, comfortable, responsive, good roll on and top end kick.

Bullet proof engine, good torque and very economical. Light clutch, quick shift, good ride, smooth motor. Brakes should be better. Seat feels a little wide.

Good 'do it all' bike. Good for shorter riders. One of the best rides I've owned.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
