GridOto.com – Ported polish and neat cable lines make this Suzuki Katana machine ready to be relied on.
We have reviewed the details of the changes in the exterior and interior of Om Eko’s ‘panjul’ Suzuki Katana.
Even though it looks neat, the Suzuki Katana engine modification can still be relied upon because it has been ported polished so that it can be nimble when used off-road.
“So for off-road, let’s talk about it first, because over time this Katana has been dressed up, how come it’s a pity to use it off-road. But that doesn’t mean that it’s completely retired, it’s just that the intensity of using this car for off-road is much reduced,” explained Eko again .
So, so that it is smooth when scratching the incline, the power needs to be adjusted. Moreover, the base of the Katana engine is relatively small, only with a capacity of 1,000 cc.

The F10A coded engine has a 970 cc cubication with a maximum power production of only 59 DK per 5,500 rpm, while the peak torque touches 78 Nm at 3,000 – 4,000 rpm.
Obviously not a sufficient amount to try off-road tracks even at a light level.

The solution, of course, is that there are many ways, either by increasing engine performance, changing the gear ratio, or installing a 4×4 drive.
The focus this time is on machines that have apparently been ported polished, “As well as refreshments actually. So that it’s more comfortable to take for long walks, because overland still likes to carry this,” he explained further.
The Katana engine modification also installs an electric fan and alternator upgrade
Another menu that makes it lighter is the installation of an electric fan so that it reduces the mechanical weight more significantly.
“So, it’s bound to be an electrical load, that’s why here I also changed the alternator to an 80 ampere one, complete with a set of aluminum pulleys,” explained Eko.
