I'm a car guy that got a 94 kawasaki zx7r with 20,000 miles in a trade. It's all polished has exhaust and some other stuff i had no idea what he was talking about.
My question is that i just turned 18 and is this bike a wise choice to learn on? It feels real uncomfortable sitting on it because your so leaned over.
I want to get it all tuned up so how much would that cost?
What insurance companies have the most resonable rates?
thanks, nice meeting you and take care

Congrats on the new bike. If you dont know what some of the stuff he was talking about is then find out before you hop on and start riding. Take your time learning to ride and the 7r will be fine. Don't be in a rush. Be patient and know that you are prepared before you hit the busy streets/highways or try to tear up the twisties. You'll probably get used to the leaning over. If not, then you may go for the sport/cruiser style in your next bike. As far as insurance then I would first try the company you have your car insured with. I personally like state farm. I'm not sure about how much a tune up cost would be. Has the bike been ridden much lately. You may want to empty the gas, replace spark plug, change oil/filter, check lub points, fluid levels ( brake ), tire pressure, etc... Enjoy your new bike and be safe!

congrats on the bike. zx7 isnt a very highly recommended bike for beginners, but as long as you respect what it can do to you... you should be fine. My best suggestions for you at this point, would be first take a MSF course and second, buy a manual for your bike-- Read through the manual to get familiar with your bike. Also be sure you buy gear, i.e. riding jacket, gloves, helmet (duh)etc...
But most of all, with a machine like that, you'll be tempted to try things you really shouldn't. Ride within your limits and be safe :thumb:
