the biggest difference between the US and other bikes is the brakes, US models had single disc, while others had dual. Also I don't think we ever got the KZ500 or the z400 here in the states, just the kz550. post a pic, does it look like a mini z1r?
I had a 500 in the early 70s, I don't recall if it was a Z or KZ. It was a 3 cylinder 2 cycle.
