Hey, name is Mitch, found you already had a Mitch, so now it's GPZmitch.

Live in Mission, B.C. Canada, home of some kick ass motorcycle drags at our Mission Raceway. www.missionraceway.com

I own a 1983 Kawasaki GPZ1100, 48,000 KM on her, great shape. The fuel injection has been taken off and she sports 4 Mikuni carbs. Has a 4 into 1 Supertrap exhaust, rides tight and true.

Anyone on here with the same bike? I will post a picture in the gallery, happy riding. GPZmitch

Only those who risk going too far, can truly find out how far one can go.

Welcome. You're the first person I've heard of who took off FI for some carbs!

Beauty. She's an eye-catching ride

The drill pattern in the rotors is really interesting. Any hairline cracks in the rotors?

As soon as I ready your post, I checked them over closely, no crack to be found.

I have some pictures of other 83's, the drill pattern looks the same on those. Great bike, haven't found many around that look like it. Mitch
