Hello from Germany,

I hope you can understand that! I had to use Google Translate to help me. My name is Klaus, I'm 57 years old and my neighbor gave me his 750Turbo last week. On his last trip in 2022, the turbo broke. Above 5000 RPM there was smoke from the exhaust. Since I work at Renault myself and drove the R5 Alpine Turbo and R5 GT Turbo in the 80s, I am familiar with the technology of a turbo, but not in the details of the GPZ. So far I have several Suzukis, a Ducati 1098, and a H*nda CBR 1000RR. My plan is to get the machine back on the road in original condition. I am very happy that there is still a forum for the GPZ 750Turbo.
Greetings
Klaus

Hello & welcome Klaus

Just a quick check if your smoking over 5000RPM remove drain plug from Plenum under left side uses a 10mm wrench. See how much oil is in there. Usually smoking higher RPM is Plenum has oil in it from 750 sitting and it blows oil into the plenum. Higher RPM blows oil into the intakes then get smoking. Hopefully that is all it needs is cleaning out oil. You can also put a check valve line on the turbocharger to prevent the bleed back issue of oil leaking into the turbocharger.
Lots of good help here start a page on your 750! :thumbup

Hey Charlie,
thanks very much for your help. I will check that as soon as possible.
Greetings
Klaus
I'I checked how much oil was in the plenum. There wasn't that much at all. Approximately 30ML. But the turbocharger shaft has extreme play
Greetings
Klaus

A warm welcome to all the noobs here.

I'm still laughing that the word H*nda still gets censored after 20+ years, but don't mind me... :rofl:

Hi My name Is Lawrence I'm from Hitchin Hertfordshire England, I originally bought a GPZ 750 Turbo brand new in 1986 when I was 28 from a local Kawasaki dealer Ken Kay Kawasaki enjoyed It very much for about 3 years then sadly sold it but in April last year a friend of mine spotted a similar bike on Facebook marketplace which turned out to be my old bike so I quickly went and bought it back after all those years and im glad to have it back but will need to pick the brains of the many experts on this forum as over the years has developed a few issues
!. it doesn't start when hot
2.the fuel level indicator just flashes all the time
3.allthe warning lcd's just flash
thanks for letting me join :beer
