Hi guys, thanks for the add. I've been a fan of the Kawasaki in line for since I was a teenager but I'm never been able to pull the trigger on one although I did have a couple of two cylinders back in the day.
Anyway I just picked this bad boy up and I was looking for any information manuals spec sheets etc on the Mr turbo kit. Looking forward to being a member here thanks

Welcome aboard!
Terry Kizer had planned to move his shop into a new location a while back, but something evidently went sideways in his life, and the new shop never opened. Fortunately, there are guys like Street Fighter LTD are still around and willing to share info about those special bikes.

I just cleaned my dirty reading glasses and noticed your bike is a 750
LOL Very rare for a Turbo kit. Just about all went on 900s or 1000s
Is the turbo a Rajay 40 or 25 model ?

The Kawasaki 750 Turbo was/is one of my personal favorites! It was the only factory 750 Turbo bike to come close to achieving the goal of 1000cc performance with a 750. Definitely one of the coolest bikes I had the opportunity to work on at the plant, and probably one of the reasons this old boy don't hear so good at 67, because I don't think it was mandatory to wear hearing protection in the Dyno Room at the time. I got to ride one with a "modified" waste gate on a trip to KMC, very impressive performance at the time. I don't think a lot of people put turbo kits on "smaller" bikes because it cost just as much as putting one on a 1000cc bike and as we all know there's no substitute for CCs. (or CIs.).

Welcome to the Forum James, it will be interesting to see what you do with your bike, Mike

Welcome Mr. Jameslegg!

You're in the right place for information on your KZ750 Mr Turbo. I thought all Mr Turbos were only made for 900/1000s. Learn something new everyday :)
