Kawasaki GPz750 Turbo
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
