We trick out our long-term 2011 Kawasaki Z1000 for the track. Check out part one in the 2011 Kawasaki Z1000 Project Part 1.
- 2011 Kawasaki Z1000 Project Bike Dyno Chart
- 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.
- Throttle response was improved after adding a LeoVince EVO II Factory-R Slip-on exhaust and Fast II box.
- 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.
- We had so much fun on the Z1000 during our streetfighter shootout we decided to turn it into a weekend trackday warrior.
- The LeoVince Fast II allows for fine-tuning of the air/fuel ratio and ignitions timing and comes preloaded with three maps.
- The LeoVince EVO II Factory-R Slip-On Exhaust is a good looking piece of kit.
- 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.
- With a new set of lower handlebars the the front end feel of the Z1000 has improved.
- Dave Moss of Catalyst Reaction suspension tuning helped get our project Z1000's chassis under control.
- A total weight loss of 21 pounds was achieved by removing non-track essential parts such as passenger foot pegs and kickstand.
