KZ1000 Question

I'm not sure if anyone will notice know this but, I have a few questions about my KZ relating to engine modifications.

First one is probably going to sound dumb but is related to the crank.. Will the crank out of a 75 Z1 fit in a 77 KZ engine?

Next is, Can the stock engine be bored to 1100? I've seen the kits for the KZ engine being made an 1100 but I wanna know if the block can handle that without being thinned too much?

Thanks for any information you can provide.

My bad, I meant the cylinders, lots of old school stuff still out there, getting harder to come by now though, this new stuff is making great power and reliability too

Thanks for all the responses guys. That's all I needed to know. I'm not turning my bike into a full on Drag bike but I wouldn't mind having a still street legal old school bike with some more kick to it.
