I have heard that Kawasaki motors have had an inherent lubrication issue with the number three rod causing it to fail. I have blown one motor and it was a rod failure but it was the number two rod. I have read on other forum this number three failure is do to the miss alignment of the rod bearing hole on the crank?? I have also read some teaser adds on motor builders web site that they can fix these inherent problems. More then one?? I am currently in the process of building a race engine that will need to sustain RPM in the 10.5 to 14.0 range for also long as 3-4 min. I am putting corrillo rods in this motor to help with the added stress but good rods will do me no good if Kawasaki’s have some other lubrications issues going on. Anyone run across this or have anything special done to there motors to help l lubrication?
