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.
