Kawasaki KZ1300 fuel injected Turbo project
Kawasaki Z1300 turbo by Richard
The particular Z1300 turbo is the
handwork of Richard Fluttert from the Netherlands.
Richard had already built 3 versions of carburetor Z1300's some years ago
but after a career in Superbike racing he remembered those earlier builds
and wanted to build one again.
This one is based on a fuel injected 1989 legendary six anniversary edition
never sold in the US.
_ The turbo uses a Rajay F40 turbine
housing and a F Flow compression wheel.
_ A high volume Scavenge Pump is mounted to return the oil from the turbo to the engine.
_ The blow off valve is from a Subaru STI and the external wastegate comes
_ A high pressure fuel pump and two fuel pressure regulators were added and
a lamda probe welded in the Exhaust
sends fuel/air mixture data to a cockpit display.
_ The ignition is changed.
_ The bike has about 200hp with 8psi turbo pressure.

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
Fixing the Bobcat tire with some FIRE
The bobcat tire went flat and de-beaded off of the rim. Being a long
weekend with no tire-shops open and needing to get the ole bobcat back up
and running we had to turn to a method I saw on the discovery channel years
ago after failing at getting the tire re-beaded with standard brute force.
