KZ1000 MADMAX Kerker open megaphone sound check
KZ1000 1978 with standard bore and factory cams, dyna ignition, 26mm
New rings and gaskets and valve job. The bike pulls very clean and
compared to other bikes of the era it feels stronger pulling from down low.
You can tell the bike has a longer stroke than a GS1000. The open Kerker
really gets down in the bottom of your ear. Vance and Hines sells a baffel
that fits the old kerker for 25 bucks.

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
