    Most everything has been covered so far, but for technical info check here:

    There are workshop manuals for each model as well as specific maintenance information. There is also the kz400 twins forum, but it's pretty baron these days.

    If yours is a 77, you probably have the earlier head design with internal top end oiling. The earlier models had oil leakage top end problems so they later switched it up to external oiling. If you happen to stumble upon a 440 motor in good shape, snatch it up and toss it in your frame. It's a 6 speed and the extra cc is another benefit to the upgrade. The only downside is the majority of the 440 bikes don't have a kickstarter. There are some out there, and it could be converted, but probably not worth the cost. Also look into a factory 2-1 exhaust. You can swap out the muffler rather easily as well.
