            I have a co-worker here in Houston that used to work for Mr Turbo in the 90s. He will be tickled to see these photos!

              Hope to get it back on the road , next year , just going over it , replacing hoses and the like , just sorted out the back wheel , from a ZX9 it's 6J , a lot lighter then the ZZR1100 wheels , has a ZX9 wave disc , again a lot lighter then the ZZR , GSXR caliper , mounted on a machined hanger , I think it look's quite neat !
              Tided up the wiring and made good some bad joints
              Don't look too bad for a 30 odd year old bike !!

                Be careful as lighter OEM wheels usually means they could be more fragile (designed for a lighter bike). With the weight of a ZX11 and the speed you intend to reach, it could be quite dramatic...

                  Had a ZX9R back wheel and a ZX7R front wheel on my ZZR1100 road bike for about 9 years , before I sold the bike , I am sure Kawasaki took into fact that some riders would be lighter then others , there is around 60lb diffrence in the dry weight .
                  Lighter wheel's is one of the biggest improvments you can make to a fast bike , helps out the gyroscopic forces trying to stop you going around a corner !
                  I am close to 168lb , I am sure there is a good few riders over 220lb

                        WOW!
                        I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

                            Very cool. What kind of HP numbers do they get out of this. 300-400? Is the set up only using Fuel injection or is that supplemental to the carbs?

                              Had it on the rolling road a few years back , think it was just over 200 HP at 5 lb boost , has no carbs just fuel injection !
