Supercharged ZRX1200

This project bike, a Kawasaki ZRX1200, is pumping out 200 HP, built by John Voter and Richard Sims of Muzzys Performance.

This extreme ride has a 45 cubic inch Eaton supercharger, somehow jam-packed into the frame, along with various changes to the steering, muzzy's air shifter, Dyna coils to replace the stock plugs, and host of other changes.

I couldn't find the article online anywhere, other than just a tidbit about it here ..Most of the information about the bike is in the months issue of sportrider.

definately..the article is very interesting, showing all the work they've done, to everything from adding a steering damper, to the supercharger, tires, exhaust, intakes, everything. I bet Muzzy & Co had a blast making this bike!!

Zrx1200

My friends dad built the bike...
Supercharger is custom made.. he charged the guy 25K$ to build it.. plus bike cost... Worth the money.. thats up to your taste.. but i can pick a better way to spend that much.. better bike anywyas.
I had a pic of my friend on the bike a few monthes ago but deleted it.
The guy that built it works for muzzys, livesi n CA but commutews on weekedays to work in OOR with rob muzzy... He has a 240HP Ducati at home and has made a 600cc bike do 205MPH... the guy has skills... He also made a lot of Z1000 parts for muzzys that they decided not to produce... still trying to geth im to lemme see the parts bin they didnt use....
He definalty charges a TON for the HP... and ppl pay for it i actually thought it was higher then 200 HP, maybe when he was testing it he didnt have it boosted much cuz i thought he built it to do up to 240HP
