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.
