One bad Kawasaki KZ1000R ELR track bike putting out 145hp at 9600rpms. This early 80s bike will put most current sportbikes to shame and that puts a smile on my face!

- 1170 ccm, Pistons done are JE according to my drawings (shorter than stock)
- H-profile Carillo rods (longer than stock)according to my drawings
- Intake valve 39mm
- outlet valve 33mm
- J-model head ported and modified to suit 11:1 compression ratio
- UT cam followers and special valve springs
- Web Cams, grind no 109
- dual plug head
- Mikuni RS36
- exhaust done by a friend and titanium muffler  from Akrapovic
- etc, etc

“To be honest it is much more fun to ride the ELR on the track than any other bike I tried .”
