About the kit
DEVELOPMENT We have developed this kit in conjunction with multiple Land speed record holder Greg Watters from Black Art Racing. Greg came to us with the requirement to lower the intake charge temperature on his LSR Kawasaki H2 project. During testing Greg has seen an impressive decrease of intake charge temp of 35-50 degreesC (95-120 degF) depending on ambient temperature & riding conditions. Greg just missed out getting his bike to the 2017 Australian LSR event at Lake Gairdner although he plans on taking it to compete in the 2017 bonneville speedweek event in the USA later this year.
DESIGN The intercooler system is a water/air type that uses the largest intercooler core we could fit within the confines of the H2 architecture, housed inside a completely in-house CAD designed & CNC machined billet aluminium two piece plenum. Cooling water is circulated via hoses from our one piece pump / reservoir / fill point through a front heat exchanger / radiator, then to the intercooler core where the charge heat is transferred from the intake charge air to the cooling water. The now heated water then starts its cycle again, completing the full cycle every 6-10 seconds. This is a stand-alone system independent from the motorcycle's cooling system. The motorcycle's overflow / header tank is shared, although the intercooler system will very rarely use this feature.
FITTING All parts required to fit the system are included in the kit, although you will require some basic hand tools to install the system plus a good understanding of your motorcycle & mechanical knowledge.
TUNING ECU Re tuning is also recommended to take advantage of the cooler charge temperature & the different internal plenum dynamics. This can also be combined with increased boost pressure for additional horsepower gains.
NOTE: Tuning changes may affect compliance with EPA regulations, please check with your local authorities before performing any tuning modifications.

Some customers may wish to have a more stealth look on their bike or add some extra protection against heat soak, so we are offering some coating options.
Anodizing is a hard wearing coating that adds a very cool satin black finish to components.
Ceramic coating adds extra protection against heat transfer (soak) from the engine to the plenum, especially when being used in a drag racing situation where the bike will sit still for long periods between runs.
High temp coating is used on the front heat exchanger to give a more stealth look without affecting its performance.
Please note: Anodizing & ceramic coating will add approximately 1 week to the production time
Some customers may wish to change the BOV return system to a vent to atmosphere type.
We've had this Turbosmart Kompact unit custom built to suit the H2, not only is it
much higher quality & more compact it looks a lot better than the OEM unit also, oh & the sound.
Note: The return hose for the OEM BOV is not included when selecting this option
We have added this option for people wanting to pay a $1000 deposit to reserve their Ninja H2 intercooler kit. ** Please note: this deposit is NON-refundable & balance owing plus any shipping charges will be payable within 1 week of you being notified that your kit is ready, otherwise we reserve the right to sell the kit to someone else on our waiting list**
. Please do not reserve a kit if you are unable to complete the purchase
Shipping priority will be given to fully paid pre-purchases, these will be shipped as soon as they are ready. Full installation video coming soon but here's a teaser.
