Model differences [ ]

Cosmetically, both the B1 and B2 were in a bright red paint called Red, the B2 was also available in a colour called Sonic The red colour theme was a departure early colour schemes and the marketing campaign called the Red featuring the 1100, 900, 750 and 550

Handlebars [ edit ]

The B1 had conventional 7/8 as found on all earlier Kawasaki Z bikes, the B2 had clip on style that mounted to the top of the fork above the top triple clamp, style then featured on the ZX1100A models. This was to continue to be the norm for most bikes, especially the Kawasaki series released in 1984.

Instruments [ edit ]

The Instruments on the B1 bulbs for all warning lights and a speedometer, tachometer, fuel and voltage meter. The B2 instrument feature the speedometer and tachometer but the gauge and most of the warning were replaced with an The design change also the wiring harness and a number of connectors in the front of the motorcycle

The speedometer on the B1 is electronic while the B2 is driven. The transducer appears to a pulse train that is to a voltage to feed the speedo [ 2 ]

Brakes [ edit ]

The front of the B1 are 10mm smaller in diameter and 1mm than the B2, the front calipers are different but the disk brake are the same. The rear disks are in both models.

The front forks are slightly between the two models. Both feature air assistance, but the B1 model an air valve located at the top of the fork leg the B2 uses an equaliser tube the two tube with a single air By using an equaliser tube, inner fork tube a small hole to allow the air in.

The legs are different as the different disk diameter used on the two require the mounting points to be

Fuel injection system [ ]

Both the B1 and B2 featured Fuel The B1 model featured an EFI (electronic) that was modelled on the 1980 and (also used in the 1980 model). This system was a car design using an air flap had many reliability issues most owners to end up removing it and it with the 34mm Keihin CV used on all the later z1000 and models.

The key problem with the EFI on the B1 was the use of an air-flap rather than a MAP sensor in modern systems and the early Position sensor (TPS) registered only open or (idle) throttle positions. models (B2 and ZX1100A)featured DFI (digital) used a variable TPS that represented the throttle position and a better Electronic Control (ECU) algorithm called

On the B1 model, the four fuel are mounted directly into the head above the inlet (hence the EFI system was referred to as injection), while the B2/A model had the more common Body Injection (TBI) the injectors are mounted into the bodies. With different bodies comes a very difference in the air box mounting.

The intake rubbers on the B1 are smaller the B2 so a throttle body swap is not without replacing the inlet They are also mounted at a 45 angle as the port injector are in the way.

Fuel system [ ]

The fuel level sender are physically different between the two this could be due to the different used to report the fuel (B1–gauge, B2–LCD). The B1 model has a sender with a round mounting, the B2 has a rectangular mounting therefore the tanks are different The DFI fuel delivery hardware to be the same.

The 1983 model also the same fuel pump and TBI as the B2.

Body parts [ edit ]

The B2 featured a bikini fairing. resulted in a change in a number of covers and the addition of extra brackets. Because of the bikini the headlight assembly is slightly between the two models.

The frames are the same with a few subtle in the fasteners used.

The tail of the B2 features a reflector on each of the rear lens. The internals of the are also different between the two The tail light lens identical mounting, so they can be

The B1 was only released in 1981 and the B2 in after that, the dual 1100 models ended and the GPz1100(ZX1100-A1) were released.
