Does anyone know if there are spoked wheel hubs that will fit my bike ? ( 1992 1100 Kawasaki Zephyr)
Possibly off a different model etc. Only just bought the bike and know nothing at this stage about Kawasakis.
Regards
Terry

Only stupid question is one not asked

Dealers are good for nothing aside form taking your money for a shinny new bike

Thanks again, I sent him an email, fingers crossed, he's a Honda restorer by the look of his site.
The bloke I was writing to about parts was at Kawasaki Aust. couldn't help at all.
One of those links you sent me had a 1997 Zephyr with spoked wheels, you wouldn't think it would be so hard. I suppose nothing easy is worth having.
I will wait for his reply.
Thanks mate for your help, much appreciated.

Great idea about checking if part numbers are the same the 1996 model had spoked wheels I'm still chasing number matches down. Thanks again for the advice

It seems there is a zr1100rs 1997 from Japan market that appears to
have the same specs take a look at these links I think they look very
promising but further investigation is needed to discover differences
between markets and what market your bike is from?

Thanks again.

I found a 1996 ZR1100B1 that had spoked wheels looked identical but when i asked if they would fit my 92 no one could tell me, im not sure if its a marketing thing, they don't understand my simple question or they don't have a clue??????
I will look up that link of the 1100RS and try and track it down.
Anyway i will chase these links up. I think I need to find someone who has put wheels off one onto the other. I don't want to buy wheels and hope they fit.
If all the parts that fit the wheels on the 96 or 97 (Axles,Brakes, Fork legs etc) had the same part numbers as the parts on my bike then I would know those wheels would fit mine but if they were the same parts but had diff numbers you wouldn't know.
Thanks Again
I will let you know how i go.
Regards
Terry

So far I have found that the 1997 has same part numbers for Axle, Frame and swing arm, front fork legs have diff part numbers but it could just be how Kawasaki numbered them and maybe there the same. I need to find someone with a 97 Zephyr to compare.
Maybe the 750 Zephyr has similar parts??????
