Performance Carb VM29
Swapping your vintage Kawasaki’s stock carburetors out for Mikuni VM29 smoothbore carbs remains the quickest route to a quicker KZ1000. The 29mm smoothbore proved to be the most popular performance carb of the 1970s for several vintage Japanese motorcycles, as it reduces turbulence in the air flow to the engine.
If you can find a set, or if you’re rebuilding yours, Z1 is a great source for CB750, GS750 and KZ1000 smoothbore carburetor gaskets and O-rings, pilot jets, main jets, needle valves and more. We also stock Mikuni VM29 Allen-head carb bolts (tumble polished), Phillips-head carb bolts, VM29 slides, jet needles and jet blocks. Z1 has just about everything you need for your vintage Kawasaki carburetor restoration.
