KAWASAKI Z1R TURBO BIKE

Just a video of the fire up of my 300 horsepower turbo charged 1978 Z1R turbo drag bike. Here's a link to my new bike with a similar motor on alcohol. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pmz05fpxuWg&list=FLyjqY5usyoXmTyaU8alXNQg&index=14

Kawasaki Quarter Mile King 1979
Video is from the International Drag Bike Association (IDBA) World Finals in 1979. Features Sid Pogue, Terry Vance, Vickie Farr and more. This is one segment from the restored video player “ Kawasaki Good Times Theatre”. The Good Times Theatre video players were used at Kawasaki dealerships in the 1970’s for customer viewing on the showrooms. This restored video features great Kawasaki moments from the mid to late 1970’s. Audio quality on the restored video is fair, but clearly understandable. This is a great piece of Motorcycle History. Hope you enjoy it.





ACE CAFE KAWASAKI DAY 2014 part 1 of 2
Featuring the rare Z1R-TC(2) turbo. http://www.odd-bike.com/2012/12/kawasaki-z1r-tc-psycho-turbo-z.html The 1978 TC earned a reputation as a fearsome, barely controllable brute that was king of the quarter mile. Just the sort of reputation that sells bikes -- motorcyclists have always been a weird lot of madmen, and when you tell them something is just "too fast" and brutal you can be sure they will be lining up to buy it. Of course some of the legend is just that - legend. "My best friend's third cousin's uncle got this turbo bike that will do 200 miles per hour and power wheelie in 5th gear. It's a secret prototype you won't find in the catalogues because its too fast, he bought it right from the factory. Swear to god guys, it's the truth." 250 of the original powder-blue models were made with moderate success; sales would improve in 1979 with the introduction of the TC2. This is the most recognizable TC, with black paint set off by striking Molly Design neon graphics that make it look like a turbocharged surfboard. '79s were still based on '78 Z1-Rs (including a few unsold TCs) as Kawasaki had discontinued the slow-selling model that year. The TC2 incorporated a better 4-1 header, improved lubrication, and a milder 6 psi Boost setting (still adjustable by the owner for maximum grenade potential, though). turbo lag was reduced, as was overall power, but reliability was improved. The proper internal reinforcements for any sort of longevity were still optional. 250 TC2s were made before California laws changed and the party ended. From 1980 on no production vehicle could be sold with Exhaust modifications, so the TC became verboten. Shame too, because sales were picking up in 1979 as the legend grew. It wouldn't be until 1982 that another production turbo bike would be available, when the legendarily ugly but well engineered Honda CX500 turbo "Plastic Maggot" hit the market. It would be followed by a short trend towards turbocharged middleweights - which would all be discontinued by 1985 due to high cost, high complexity, and insurance blacklisting. The Z1R-TC beat them all to market, and trumped the later bikes for outright performance (at the expense of any form of longevity). The TC has become a rare collectible; with only 500 examples in the US and Canada, and with a reputation as a violent street brawling brute, it's little wonder than Z1R-TC values are rising steadily and available bikes are getting snapped up by enthusiasts "in the know" about Kawasaki's off-the-record psychotic turbo bike. It's the truth guys, my aunt's boyfriend's half brother's best friend said so.
