Kawasaki A description
This a 1977 kz 1000 with , I believe , 1981 ltd tank, tail and side covers . It runs and rides very nice for a 40 year old machine . I have owned it for nearly 20 yrs. and have put roughly10k miles on it. The engine was rebuilt in 1996 and the following was done to it . 1015 wiseco pistons , new heavy duty cam chain , new ss valves with heavy duty springs and cam bearings . Recently , with in the last 5 years the following was repaced , alternator , rectifier /regulator , dyna s coils and crank trigger , carb boots and fasteners , carbs were rebuilt as well . A relay ass. was installed to bypass the old coil wires and there for the coils are getting battery voltage of 14 or so . replace the spockets and drive chain along with the tires . The ignition switches work as they should .I did replace the head lamp bulb (55) watts with a 1156 to conserve current and can be easily replaced . All the lights and turn signals work as they should with the exception of the head lamp mention earlier . The horn also works as well . I like to keep race gas in the tank and at least start it once a month or turn the petcock on to keep the carbs full . It is idling around 1500 , so the carbs may need a little tweaking . I have also rebuilt the master cylinders with nos parts and it has new pads on all 3 of the calipers .

World Superbike racebikes will be required to have fake headlight stickers on their race fairings to more closely resemble their production series counterparts. The new regulation, set to kick in for the 2013 WSBK season, was designed to establish a closer link between the production model and the race-trim superbike. The new rules will also mandate 17-inch aluminum wheels.
