Kz1000/z1000 project

Picked up an 82 kz1000 frame and doing a ground up build with an 03-06 z1000 engine
Front end is from 07-08 zx6 and rear end is 80-82 gs1100e
Pretty much found a frame and started buying parts
Have to have a few hard parts machined up for the rear end and then mounts fabricated and welded for engine an radiator
Not much done for the engine stuff yet
Hoping to have a rolling chassis by spring

Will the Z1000 Engine sit in the KZ frame in a way that allows the exhaust to fit around the frame and plug into the head?

I had a header for a z1000 and it fit in the frame rails
Worst case the engine becomes a stress member like modern bikes
It's gunna be a wild build but we'll see when I get there

Jowek,
I have a spare Muzzy 03 ZX9R full exhaust. It will not clear the 03-06 Z1000 suspension link, so I cannot use it. The link is way right on the 03-06 Z1000 compared to the ZX9R. This may clear yours if the linkage is more centered like the ZX9R. The header is great, aluminum can has some scratches but is still nice. PM me for details.

Builds in Progress
K ZX7R Superbike-ish
M ZX7R Crevier Superbike - Complete
M ZX7R Russell Superbike
N ZX7RR Yanagawa-ish Superbike
Z750S Frankenstein-ish bike
