Well, I would like to disagree, based on the records below. Of cause no guarantee, just reciting:

(K)Z1300 A3: (1981)

Again, that is what I have. 
Maybe it helps.

This is the best list we have to date. Thanks Holger for reposting  What would be nice to have as a resource is an Excel file list with 4 columns - Year, Frame Number, Engine Number and Additional Information (paint colors etc)

KawaBCN has an engine with a different series number  (AG)  where the list  posted above only shows the engines with an (AE) series number, So what we have in the existing list is obviously incomplete.

I'll suggest that the AG series may be the engines used in the European models??

With the help of Google I spent hours looking for links for the sale of engines and crankcases all over the world and all the numbering I could see was AE.
I didn't find any like mine AG. 
I only have the option of asking in a couple of Facebook forums about our 1300.

OK. So here's one for you . This is one of my engine numbers. KZT30AE-000938.
This engine number isn't within the range you listed.     KZT30AE-0001010  - KZT30AE-005309.    So using the engine numbering, what year was my bike made ?

Moot now, but the S/N identifies it as a 1979.  Sorry for late reply.

Thanks for replying - yes -The bike was manufactured in 1979, and I know that because of the frame number , which is printed on a sticker/ decal on the frame tube just above the radiator says MFD . BY KAWASAKI HEAVY INDUSTIRES 2/79.
But others have stated that a better way to identify the year of manufacture is to use the engine number.  And as my engine number precedes the earliest number in the list , that is KZT30AE -001010 and mine is KZT30AE- 000930  by 80 engine numbers , that engine list makes no sense . Because 1010 can not be the first engine number on the first bike made .
So I'm wondering if one of the moderators could step in and do something about correcting it.
