    You're correct though...the posties assoc need to tighten up and clarify their rules.
    From an Aussie article;
    Such is Kawasaki's long-standing ZZ-R600 - once the benchmark to which others aspired.
    Much has changed in the marketplace since the ZZ-R's worldwide release back in 1989.

    See earlier post. Same article then goes on about it's 1990 release.

    Yawn...and I could quote 100 articles stating it came out in 1990.

    Doesn't matter anyway, email back from posties guys stating that ZZR600 is not eligible and that they're going to take some of the ambiguity out of the rules. I won't be doing a CBR engined ZXR400 based on their advice either.

    Mostly people whine because they have something they want to use, that very nearly fits the rules I think.

    If the 1990 GSXR1100 was available before December 1989 (and I don't think it was), lots of people who are all about Suzuki would be able to get a lot closer to the lap times of an FZR1000, then currently.
    I bought the 1st K to come in the country and was riding it around in October 88. Suzuki had a habit of selling next years model round oct/nov in those days. I'm confidant you would find they were selling L's by nov 89.

    Pretty sure the RZ wasn't released until 83, the first time the 250 was raced in NZ was July 83 at the Vic winter series by Bryan Forbes & Eddie Kattenberg (Mike Pero may have also been on one) where they trounced the much more expensive & on paper more competitive RG250 which were also making their debut. Can't remember the 350 being available earlier but have been mistaken before.

    Maybe at that stage the head hadn't been "dropped"on the workshop floor and had to be re machined

    I ordered a brand new Yamaha FZR600 in June 1989,and received an A model(1990) in October 1989,purchased from A Bolwell of Oamaru

    I don't think the FZR changed from '89 to '90 though did it?
