Default 1997 Kawakaki ZX7R With ZX9r engine

Can this be done? Is it a simple swap? Do you need to custom make any brackets? Is there a company that makes a kit? anyone with information on this would greatly be appreciated. thanks rob

There is a company that makes a kit for this conversion. I know the 94-97 zx9r motor fits in the 93-95 zx7 easier than the 96-02 zx7 but the kit is supposed to take care of that including the engine mounting holes. Do a seach for the conversion kit on yahoo and you will find the company with a little patience, i know its out there. Good luck

There are cheaper alternatives than the 9R engine. . . Check out my thread in the Kawi forum on Big Bore Conversion for the 7R.

The company is BRG...

http://www.brgracing.com/zx79.htm

I think the kit is overpriced, but it will make it a simple bolt in process for you. It includes:
An Oil Passageway Adapter
And mounting bolt relocation brackets for the front two mounting bolts.

I am in the process of getting a 9r engine delivered to me now to do the swap in my '95...

It shouldn't be too pricey between finding a decent motor for $1500, and selling my old one for $500 less than that... When I feel the need for speed again, I will just do a big bore to the 9r

Here are some other links that may be of interest for you... It has taken me a while to find all the information that I needed.
