Kawasaki KZ1300 fuel injected Turbo project
Kawasaki Z1300 turbo by Richard Fluttert. 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 from Mr.turbo. _ 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.

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. update: see my new project http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQRUpdps7W8
