The 1300 Voyagers sold in the USA (1984 - 1989) NEVER had carburetors. They had Mikuni fuel injection from the beginning of production.

Are you certain the motorcycle in question is really a 1300 Voyager? If so, it is possible someone retrofitted carburetors, or the engine has been swapped for an earlier KZ1300 engine.

Yep, I presume the seller knows what he has, get him to count the amount of cylinders he has, if its missing two tell him he has a 1200 :lol:

some interesting reading on the 1300 Voyager. To my knowledge, all 1300 Voyagers had mikuni DFI. the kz 1300 touring had carbs.

Hm. Curiouser and curiouser.

Here's the link:

Yes, the front is an abomination. That would go away pretty damn quickly.

Owner says that it does indeed have carburetors; 6 carbs in banks of 2.

Side panels say VOYAGER.

It's hard to tell whether those are carbs or an EFI setup.

Thoughts?
