What's the difference between -1053 and -1051?

Are they interchangeable?

I know ca bikes had extra emissions stuff but non California bikes did not.

What the exact difference is, I cannot say for sure. It will be whatever the difference is between the spec. of the US & the CAN models. :popcorn

I would expect that the US or CAN owners will be able to provide a bit more info. :thumbup

I think the parts list ref you have above, may be in error. I also have this one. In addition, if you look at the microfiche say from (partzilla) it ref CA for this part which I say is California (NOT CANADA). If you look at other sub assemblies, I say this ECU (1053) was designed for the CA FUEL TANK, and the Canister and other emissions components that match the CA bike which have stricter emmisions laws.

So ultimately my question is will this ECU (1053) work with a non-emissions bike in an acceptable manner which is what the rest of the world got. IE... IS IT INTERCHANGEABLE with -1051

There may not really be that many complete California bikes in existence. As a result, if this ECU only correctly works with a California bike, it is not going to work for me as my bikes appear not to be CALIFORNIA models.

Well, there you are. You answered you own bump/question. The suspicions you have about CA referring to Cal & not Canada makes sense. :thumbup

I checked my US bike to see what the ECU is & it is 1051. I don't recall ever checking what it is before today, but then again I have only had it 20 YEARS. :cool:

:beer

I have a Genuine Kawasaki Microfiche which shows 1053 as the ECU for European spec bikes. Pretty unlikely it has the errors the US version has. I have doubts that it is even a genuine Kawasaki release, but something made elsewhere. The bike isn't Ninja 750R as far as I know, unless it was known as that in the US. :popcorn

This is a UK spec ECU. It came off one of my two UK bikes, I've never bought a spare.

Thanks Lorcan, that much I understood. I am trying to determine if/how it would work on the ca,us spec bike.

In doing so, I am learning some things,, at least I think so

1) it seems that UK injectors(yellow band) and us injectors(green band) are interchangeable by design on a UK bike, but not on a us bike. Guessing the spray has been modified to result in cleaner burn thus improving emissions I output. I would guess UK injectors work fine on us bike, but potentially impact emissions

2 I have two 84 turbos and one 85 turbo parts bike. Not 100 percent sure, but I do not recall seeing the ca fuel tank or canister subassembly on the 84s. However, I do recall seeing the canister in a box of parts for the 85. My hypothesis is they added the canister to the 85 us model to improve emissions and that the canister assembly was never on any 84s. I have a hard time believing kawasaki would send 2 sub configurations 2 the us in 84 or 85. Thus my conclusion is they added the fuel tank and canister to all 85 e2 us bikes

Just trying to better understand the configuration of the original bikes from a purist perspective.

Also am curious if a UK spec ecu can be used without issue on a us bike

Hey J the injectors are identical and interchangeable. Sent both yellow and green top injectors to RC years ago and they verified there both Bosche 240cc injectors only the yellow or green hat was the difference. :thumbup

There seems to be some confusion here. The ECU I am not sure about I have never been able to find out if the UK version is the same as the US version or not. There was some diff. in the bike functions so maybe the UK version ECU is diff. But maybe Kawasaki just put a diff. number on it because it went on bikes sold in the UK, don't know.

As far as the abbreviations for the diff. countries it's all in the supplement manual. C= Canada & Cal.= California. If you read through the supplement you find references all through it for the California model, like read the Emissions Control Statement. (It specifically states they made bikes specifically for California) Only bikes sold in California had the extra emissions stuff on them. Not all 85 models, same in 84. There are other references as well in the supplement manual again referencing only for the California model.

And yes Kawasaki would for sure want to have a diff. bike with emissions complying to only California because California has more registered bikes on the road than any state in the lower 48. So Kawasaki would for sure want to comply in order to sell bikes there as they and every other manufacture still does today.

Check out your supplement manual. Cheers :thumbup
