Kawasaki ZX-7R, 1996-2003
pseudo Kinko's racebike
Pictures of Team Kinko's Kawasaki zx6r and zx7r race bikes.
Seven teams took part in the testing with the factory squads from Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha joined by the the Supersport support teams of Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha. Two-time Daytona 200 winner Duhamel did time on his 1996 Smokin' Joe's Honda superbike machinery plus 600 Supersport machinery with 1997 pieces.
Chandler was joined by two new teammates -- Tommy Hayden and Todd Harrington -- on the Team Muzzy Kawasaki squad. Hayden spent time on both the Superbike and 600 Supersport machinery while Harrington tested on the Supersport bike. The ZX-6 machines were new with the ZX-7 Superbikes in '96 trim.
Thomas Stevens tested on Monday with the Kinko's Kawasaki 600 Supersport
but spectated the next two days after coming to an agreement to race a Ducati for Vance & Hines in the AMA Superbike Series.
Factory Pro supplied all tuning EC997 dynos and all the carburetor tuning, ignition and shifting items for the ultra quick Scott Beach / Michael Tjon EC997 dyno tuned Kawasakis.

Needle jets worn out?
Bike runs too rich at low rpm because of worn needle jets?
Send in your carbs and we can replace them with patented HDJ style needle jets.

Let Factory Pro replace your worn "non-replaceable" needle jets and convert your carbs into HDJ (High Dispersement Jet) style needle jet carbs.
Better throttle response - potentially better mileage - 2% to 5% more power - augmented part throttle response.

Hi Marc just to let u know I finally got carbs from UK customs on Wednesday 23rd they sat on them for 10 days then had the cheek to charge me 70.00 pounds import duty bloody UK - any way, when I put the carbs back on bike it started first time and bike now goes so much better thank you and your team for their work very pleased and it now idles which it had never done before. Thank you very much.
It's just much better the whole way through the rev range but especially higher revs - just really impressed - thank you.

I only wish that we had the HDJ needle jets when we were racing them back in the mid to late 90's with Team Kinkos and Muzzy's.
I'd estimate 4 to 6 hp gain on top - that would make it def stronger than the later model zx9r!
Lowend and midrange are improved by about the same percentage.

HDJ needle jet Installation
"The new needle jets you installed fixed the problem created by the worn out stock ones.
Before, I could see the large drops (globs) of fuel being released between the needle and jet while it was idling (air box off).
Now I see nothing."
|THE fix for other carb kits|
Best "drop-in" kit. Boosts power a bit
at full throttle, improves throttle response and wheelie ability. Definitely
pulls harder out of 2nd and 3rd gear corners. Pulls
This is the only brand of carb kit made that can
run smoothly below 3000 rpm on the zx7r. The dynojet kit doesn't -
(and it can't ever).
Note that we said "80%" of the zx7r's.....
About 20% of the zx7r's are "different".
That's the solution for the often perplexing zx7r. It's not perplexing if you know that there's "2 different bikes".

Make shifting MUCH quicker and virtually eliminate missed shifts when it's done. The same pro shift kit that Team Kinko's used when they raced their super fast 7r's back in 96!

Ignition Advance Rotor
Adds some power at ALL part throttle positions. That equates to more "snap" in throttle response for you. If you are not an experimenter, get the 2.
Absolutely the BEST way to measure float heights.
Measures in MM.
Persistent missing at high rpm? Anti-Theft Alarms?
Regardless of main jet selected? All air correction plumbing is properly connected? - the bike still misses at full throttle / high rpm.
And you have an "alarm" installed???
Disconnect the alarm and retest.
As of October 24, 2001, there have been many reports of alarms causing high rpm misfiring. Disconnect the alarm and the problem goes away.
It can be present when you install the alarm, may start after a crash or sometimes, just "occur".
Call the alarm company to discuss that with them!

|The extension of the laboratory
for engines of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was completed
in about 1935. Its architect was Rudolf Otto Salvisberg (1882-1940).
He had a successful career in Berlin but returned to Switzerland after
the advent of the Nazis. His architectural style was somewhat similar
to that of Erich Mendelsohn. The staircase of the laboratory is in normal
use but well preserved.
Edited to the tunes of Chemical Residue by Herbie Hancock.
Maybe in next rewrite, he'll fix the ignition timing and dyno chapters...
Otherwise great book with great starting ideas.
