2011 Kawasaki Z1000 Project Bike Photo Gallery
We had so much fun on the Z1000 during our streetfighter shootout we decided to turn it into a weekend trackday warrior.
We trick out our long-term 2011 Kawasaki Z1000 for the track. Check out part one in the
2011 Kawasaki Z1000 Project Part 1
The LeoVince EVO II Factory-R Slip-On Exhaust is a good looking piece of kit.
The LeoVince Fast II allows for fine-tuning of the air/fuel ratio and ignitions timing and comes preloaded with three maps.

The power gains from the LeoVince exhaust and Fast II box made the 2011 Kawasaki Z1000 more fun to ride on the track and street.
Throttle response was improved after adding a LeoVince EVO II Factory-R Slip-on exhaust and Fast II box.
Rizoma's levers and ProGuard System look great and work awesome.
The Rizoma ProGuard System protects your levers from accidental actuation from other riders.
A set of Rental FatBars made the riding position more aggressive.
Vortex Sprockets and a gold RK chain put the power to the rear wheel.
A Kawasaki Genuine Accessories tall windscreen is easier to tuck behind down the straights.
With a new set of lower handlebars the the front end feel of the Z1000 has improved.
A total weight loss of 21 pounds was achieved by removing non-track essential parts such as passenger foot pegs and kickstand.
We spooned on a set of Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires to replace the stock rubber that had been decimated by two previous days at the track.
Dave Moss of Catalyst Reaction suspension tuning helped get our project Z1000's chassis under control.
