Don't look but not only am I using a race ECU for my streetbike BUT I'm putting a Gen4 Race ECU on a Gen1 at the same time... If need be I'll build a separate harness for lights and a horn... I'm sure Kawasaki made it hard to adapt to discourage people from using race ECU's on their streetbike due to EPA laws. That said I also have my eye on a Motec ECU for the same project which is the only way I'll not use the Race ECU.. Making all this work on a GEN 1 will be pulling off a big ask since the Gen4 does not use a cam sensor and the Gen1 does. The Gen4 has 8 injectors and the Gen1 only 4 so a fuel rail and stands have to be made for all that plus I'm swapping to Gen 4 throttle bodies which is further complicated because the throttle cables are in the center on the Gen1 and off to the side on Gen4... Sometimes I wonder why I create such problems for myself to be honest.. Only answer I can think of is because it hasn't been done before I guess$700
Not a question of mapping, it's the race kit removes and repurposes items on the stock hardware for race-only items. E.G., it removes all connectors for the lighting, side stand switch, etc. It also repurposes the controls on the clip ons. So instead of beeping a horn, say it will activate say an RPM pit limiter (I can't recall exactly what is repurposed). If you put the race kit ECU in your OEM harness bike it will not work, same for if you put your OEM ECU in your bike with a race kit loom.
