Gen 1: Multiple engine configurations made?


I was wondering if there are two different engine configurations made for Gen 1 ZX-10R? Can anyone confirm?

Or can anyone tell the difference between engines shown on the attached photo? Seems there is at least a difference in the clutch cover (14032-0039 COVER-CLUTCH ZX1000-C1H). By the looks of it seems that the clutch cable wiring was made differently between these two different configurations.

Are these made for different markets? Whats up with the different covers? Any more differences with the two engines?

I could not find any other parts other than 14032-0039 (also shown in the picture) even though running trough different markets using

I was just going through an old magazine with a sport bike review and the article had photos of the bike with both covers!

Thanks in advance!

This was just a last minute change of the clutch cover design. Highly anticipated “Pre-production” bikes had already been finalized and sent to press reviews.

However my 04 manual has an insert to update the drawings which means the change happened after manual was sent to print.

Can’t remember the reason but I want to say it was either leaking or causing clutch engagement issues for the press riders
