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 .” Cheers Henrik
Beautiful 1983 Kawasaki KZ1000 R2 Eddie Lawson Replica. This bike is probably worth a fortune and well deserves it because it is the cleanest example of this bike I have ever seen. My buddy is restoring one of these right now ;)
