Kawasaki Other description

Published almost everywhere,

It starts as a 1978 KZ650 where the cylinders have been bored and sleeved to 830cc with a MTC big bore kit from the late 70s.

The upper case has been machined as well.

This was a complete case split rebuilt documented with pictures (uploaded on my website)

The turbo kit is from ATP American Turbo Pak (ATP branded intake manifold, turbocharger RayJay F40 and exhaust manifold and pipe), just like the one that equipped the Kawasaki Z1R-TC back in 1978-79.

Needless to say these vintage big bore kits and ATP turbo kit are extremely rare to find. 

Some of the mods include but not limited to:

Dyna-s electronic ignition

Martek ignition coils 

Metzler Lasertec tires 

Forks with stiffer springs

Drilled front rotor

Rebuilt starter clutch

Battery Tender lithium battery

"Car like" ignition switch 

Painted long bucket headlight and bracket

New gold chain

LED tail, stop and blinkers 

Custom rear fender

Clip ons

Minimalistic controls

New master cylinder , brake hose and clutch lever assembly

New Kawasaki tank emblems 

New Custom Wiring harness

Custom Seat and seat pan (which opens up with the OEM key just like the original one, so you can store your docs or do maintenance to the battery and components)

Black enamel painted frame

Custom Paint job and pin striping by Rare Air Werx

Chrome is original (8/10)

Makes a blasting 100whp at 10psi currently set at a conservative 5psi

The original 650cc motor set up had half of this power at the wheel

This bike has been featured on the most influential social network and online magazines like:

Bike Exif
