Kawasaki KZ1300 Turbo
The bike has JE pistons and parts from Mr turbo such as Mikuni Flatslide HSR 42 with a float
bowl spacer kit to get enough fuel.
Richard made an own Exhaust for his
bike with Mr turbo u-bends and stock Exhaust parts.
The bike has plenty of power with just 6 lb. of Boost.
The Wide Band Commander is for analyzing the air-fuel ratio.

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.
