    Hi Takahiro San, very interesting SXZ and with frame and engine numbers is helpful. Front indicator mounting position is odd however, like many Kats with cowl damage it is possible a previous owner mounted the indicators further back for some reason. Calipers in photo are not GS1100G calipers and the muffler looks like 27mm. Also good they confirm the SXZ that were returned to Japan, like your Kat. Great photos for reference.

    Cheers.

    Hi 真剣 San,
    I think that the calipers are the original as South African SXZ specification, and even the standard muffler is too.
    Cheers Takahiro

    Takahiro San, yes, it has the correct caliper for South African SXZ. The muffler looks like standard 27mm.

    Cheers.

    According to the description, 15 SXZs have returned to Japan. If that was the case, Japan had more possessions than South Africa.

    Would be very interested to trace details of all bikes returned to Japan to determine if my bike was returned and exported to Australia.
    Is there a register of Katanas in Japan?

    Hi Tye san,
    if your SXZ was registered in Japan, of course the record should remain. So I just called the government office to ask for it. But they didn't tell me that. The reason is that the information will not be disclosed unless the vehicle owner applies in writing. The store that once sold the SXZs in Japan was a motorcycle store called Pole Position in Tama City, Tokyo. However, the owner was arrested for illicit manufacture of pistols then, the store went bankrupt.

    By the way, if the total production of S.A.SXZs was 25, those frame numbers are not serial numbers. The famous blue and white vehicle as S.A.SXZ is GS110X-100700. My SXZ is GS110X-100825.
    Cheers
    Takahiro

    Clive Strugnell's SXZ here in South Africa. Note the tubular swing arm in place of the aluminium version.
    There is my opinion and then there is wrong!

    This bike shop held a total of 12 training camp-style racing schools at Lakeside_International_Raceway in Australia for Japanese in the 90's. The school name was "Poleposition racing school", and the instructors included Scott Doohan and Daryl Beattie.

    Several SXZs equipped with BS34SS and the tubular swing arm have been confirmed in Japan. These SXZs were not sold at pole position. Have you ever seen such SXZs in South Africa?
