Arto Nyquist - Stunting on a Z1300 - YouTube2.flv
Arto Nyquist, the Finnish stunt rider, caused a sensation in the 1980's
riding a Z1300. Even now 30 years later its damned impressive...not sure
there are so many Z1300 tail lights available now either! This is from a
LWT programme called Just Amazing presented by Kenny Lynch and Barry
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.

KZ900 Carburetor Synchronizing Part 2
Continuation of balancing the carburetors using the Morgan CarbTune on a
KZ900. The 1973-1975 Z1 and the 1977 to 1980 KZ1000 should be similar. The
Z1's use a set screw to the side of the carburetor.

TEST RETRO | Kawasaki 750 H2 1973
Essai Kawasaki 750 H2 1973. Extrapolé de l'indomptable 500 H1 et son
moteur 3 cylindres deux temps, la H2 est devenue un mythe et dès sa sortie
en 1972 se place comme la plus puissante des motos avec ses 74 ch. Une moto
à sensations pour l'époque mais qui reste très contrôlable. La H2 c'est
aussi le crépitement du deux temps, ses fumées et ses odeurs... ces
dernières n'étant pas encore imprégnées dans la vidéo !

1974 Kawasaki Z1 Dragbike in 1985 "Old Zs Never Die!"
This is a 25 yo (1985) VHS video of my old Z1 making a 9.54 pass. This is a
7-time National Record Holding Z1. All-time bests are 9.39 @ 138 in the 1/4
and 5.87 @ 116 in the 1/8th. I bought this bike new in March of 1974 and
still own it today. (2010) There isn't/never was a turbo, Nitrous,
big-block, slider clutch, tach, shiftlight, 2-step or any other such
garbage on this bike. Strictly "seat of the pants". The motor was built by
Mark McIntosh of M&M Racing Louisville Ky in 1978. It is 1045cc with 31mm
CR carbs and carried 640# in it's record settng form.
Haters,Squids,Stunters or most Hardly/Zuki Lovers will not be able to
appreciate this motorcycle or the era in which it was created. It can't do
"Stoppies", I don't "stand on the seat" and "Wheelies" are limited by the
bar set-up. "It is what it is": A historic example of a record setting
"Modified" of it's era and preserved exactly as it was in 1986. Old Zs
