Classic Kawasaki riders rejoice, as the Japanese manufacturer will be reproducing inline-four-cylinder head components for its Z1, KZ900, and KZ1000 street bikes. Would-be customers can purchase engine top-end hardware as a kit, including camshaft brackets, tappers, valves, and related hardware. Camshafts, cylinder head cover, and gaskets, however, are not included.
“In order to meet the needs of Z1 owners and collectors, Kawasaki has decided to reproduce cylinder heads for the Z1, KZ900, and KZ1000,” Kawasaki Motors Corp. said in a press release.
