'There was a lot to think about when i was making my Kawasaki V12. Here is a pic of whats inside. The Z1300 clutch and transmission are huge in proportion and more than capable of handling the extra power but i had to swap a few gears around to increase the final drive ratio for the 2300cc V 12 engine'

So he's running the second big end on a spur off the first rod? Kind of like radial engine practice I suppose.
