Re: Rickman

Success at last, have now got it started but only on two cylinders. The fuse needed connections needed cleaning.

The green wire from the martek is not powering up the coil for 2-3 cylinders, in effect running on 2 cylinders

Re: Z 1000 St E2

Took the bike for test ride today, it ran a bit ruff until it warms up. The problem of returning to idle has gone away.

The base gasket is still leaking.

I did another compression test this time the results are Cylinder 1,155 2,145 /3, 145 and 4 120.
So a little better than last time.

Re: Rickman

I had new tyres fitted and bolted the wheels back in the frame.

Next fitting the engine.

The contrast of a black engine against a nickel frame, looks quite nice.
