I know this post is 3 years old but going to answer it anyways. I own a 1980 Kawasaki KZ1300 B2 Touring model. Good bikes but if you get one, be sure the engine is not locked up. Crank it over to be absolutely sure but don\īt start it. You will need to replace the CCT on these machines if it has not been started in awhile BEFORE attempting to get it running. If you don\īt, well you could lose the engine. Otherwise parts still can be had for it at a prem price. If you get a complete bike, that is half the battle. Rest assured that this bike is a powerhouse and a monster. Not lightweight by any means. I have over $3,000 invested in mine, and I don\īt regret it. My bike is a naked KZ 1300 meaning the touring package is off the machine. I do have the package but in the process of doing some restore work. In the meantime, I\īm enjoying riding it on the local roads. Good luck in getting one if you haven\īt already.
