Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo
Technical Training
The following is Part 1 of the Kawasaki GPz 750 Turbo Technical Training Manual.
It deals with turbocharger system theory and operation. Kawasaki used this manual to help
train their personnel to understand and troubleshoot the turbo monster. Though some of it
has the unmistakable sound of corporate chest-beating (but hey, why not?) there's a lot of
good science contained in these pages for owners and tinkerers of any turbo persuasion.
Part II with feature a turbocharger troubleshooting guide. Look for it in our winter edi-
tion. Thanks to Jill A. Dunning of Kawasaki's Consumer Services Dept. for supplying the
TMIOA with this manual.
What makes Kawasaki's 750 Turbo the world's fastest? Learn just how easy it is to
understand, troubleshoot, and tune this high technology system.
This is a comprehensive, technically-oriented program that focuses on systems and
components unique to the 750 Turbo.
Major emphasis is placed on theory and maintenance of the turbocharger system,
while other topics covered include suspension, chassis, internal engine and Digital
Fuel Injection components.
Upon review of the 750 Turbo Course, the student will:
• Thoroughly understand the turbocharger and all related systems (such as wastegate
valve and actuator, boost pressure sensor and LCD boost indicator).
• Have awareness of the other differences between the GPz750 and the 750 Turbo.
