    1978 kz streetfighter

    This project began life as a 1978 kz650. A friend of mine bought it cheap from a guy who had it sitting in a barn. Some parts were used off of it, and then it was once againg placed in a barn to remain for the rest of its miserable life. I saw this and took action. I drew up an idea of what i wanted it to end up like and went from there.

    Here is it in its original state. Mmmm aint it pretty



    Here are some pics of the frame after what seemed like days of cutting and grinding.



    mock up with 2004 gsxr1000 swingarm




    motor work







    more mock up



    monoshock setup

    brake light will behind this plate inside the frame


    powdercoating




    dyna standalone ignition system. coils, electronic ignition, rev limiter/advance and retard curves, fully programmable.






    how it sits today






    This bike is very fast and alot of fun. With the work done it should make somewhere in the ballpark of 120hp. Never dynoed buy these are common mods for these bikes and others have had these results. It is a blast to ride and it is a good feeling to have something that is one of a kind that you built with your own hands. I thought about just buying a sportbike before the build, but decided against it because anyone can have a sportbike and i wanted something completely out of the ordinary. Its also a good feeling being able to keep up with the new stuff on a classic.

    Oh ya, the goodies: 81 750 bottom end,810cc high comp. forged wiseco pistons, ported gpz head, gpz cams, head milled down to further bump compression, 34mm carbs with bigger jets. Rev limiter is set at 10,500rpm but she has a tad more life in her after that.

    that is the first thing most people think of, except the seating position is almost identical to how it was stock keeping it very rideable
