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.
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.
