bowl spacer kit to get enough fuel.

bike with Mr turbo u-bends and stock Exhaust parts.
The bike has plenty of power with just 6 lb. of Boost.

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.

Turbo Hayabusa T-Rex - Part 1
My friend's Campagna T-rex with a turbocharged Hayabusa engine. This monster puts

tire in the back. It is probably the fastest T-Rex out there, considering
it hits 110 in 1st gear and spins tire at 130 mph. And if you're wondering
why it needs pushed by hand to back up, it's because bike motors don't have
reverse gears haha. We were doing some test runs trying to fix slight
idle/stalling out problem. More videos of this thing to come! Thanks for
Kawasaki KX500 2-Stroke VS KX450F 4-Stroke
Is a two-stroke better than a four-stroke? The dust will never settle and
the battle will never end.
To further examine this issue, Dirt Rider enlisted the help of Destry
Abbott aboard his championship winning two-stroke Factory Kawasaki KX500
and his thundering Kawasaki KX450F to find out which bike is the ultimate
machine. Check out the 2014 August issue of Dirt Rider for a full

how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you

and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
