170bhp Kawasaki ZRX1100 Turbo!


Turbocharged, 170bhp ZRX1100 = FUN!

Found this rather interesting Kawasaki ZRX1100 Turbo on the PB mag forum. The owner has fitted a bucket load of all the right parts – USD fork from a ZX-9R, 320mm wavy brake discs with Nissin four-piston caliper, five-spoke Marchesini wheels, Yoshimura exhaust, ZX-6R swingarm (with additional bracing from a 1998 FireBlade) and Tsukigi race-rep paint. Cool!

Of course, the engine is where the action is – it’s a ZRX1100 mill with two extra base gaskets, ZZR1100 valve springs, and a modified ZX-7R radiator. The turbocharger is a Mitsubishi TDO4 15T unit, which is used on the Saab 9-5 Aero. The fuel pump is from a Saab 900 and a Dyna 2000 ignition has also been fitted. The owner says the bike makes more than 170 horsepower, so the bike should be an absolute blast… :-)
