Seafoam 1980 Kawasaki KZ1000 G1 Z1 Classic Fuel Injection
This is model was the first mass production motorcycle and only built for
one year. The serials run from 500004 - 503205, that leaves 3,201 units.
Fuel Injection technology was just beginning and the electrical components
of this model used to fail being impossible to get replacement parts even
from Kawasaki. Many of those broken bikes were converted to Carburator
using Mikuni or Keihin carbs. I have the luck to run into this EFI
running Z1 Classic with aprox 20k miles and super clear papers.
The main issues she has was a fuel pump relay (replaced) that was getting
stuck draining the battery, the idle rpms needed a running and sometimes
when full opening the throttle she would die.
Seafoam in the fuel and vacuum line, helped a lot to get a smoother idle
and now she won't die at full throttle
As the engine is running almost fine no major maintenance will be done

Real not retro - Modified Kawasaki Z1
Kawasaki Z1A action. An original 1970's bike modified to perform for 2012.
Just having some fun learning how to use editing software with footage from
a GoPro mini camera.
This was an old nail that I restored and modified. It now handles superbly
and is really quick.
