Re: Z 1000 St E2

The engine had a top end rebuild 100 miles ago , just been out for a 20 mile run and the base gasket is leaking from the front left corner. I will try and torque it down when the engine cools down.

Re: Z 1000 St E2

I allowed the 2mm gap below the top yoke, this made no difference.

Next i am investigating the carburetors, why they are not returning to idle.

Re: Z 1000 St E2

Invested in a fork seal tool.

Fork seal went in square this time.

The front spindle was very stiff and did not line up very well.

Re: Z 1000 St E2

The fork tube has been replaced, i think it is incorrect fitment of the seal. I have ordered a seal fitting tool to alleviate this, hopefully this will fix this.

Re: Z 1000 St E2

Purchased a seat off ebay, it is a good fit except around the tail piece.

The tail piece does not seem wide enough for the seat.

All the locating rubbers line up with the frame rails.

There is also a diagram of the bike on the underside.

Re: Z 1000 St E2

The brake was binding when we brought it back from the mot, we used some sand paper to reduce the thickness of the pad this has worked. On the test run yesterday the was way to much play in the lever, adjusted it and it works as it should except the pedal seems too high in relation to the pedal.

Re: Z1000 st carbs

I still have the problem of the revs holding at 3000 RPM, decelerating whilst riding. The ignition rotor was loose, i have tightened this. there is an noticeable improvement in that the revs hold at 3000rpm and not 5000rpm.

Apart from this the engine is running well

I have put new throttle cables on and resealed the in let rubbers. I checked the ignition cam rotor and the bolt was loose. The bike is going for an mot re test tomorrow, i am hoping this is the problem.
