Re: z1100 and z1000J compatability help needed

So long as it has 17mm Gudgeon pins it'll fit on a J bottom end, as has already been said Unitrak engine has 18mm pins - this engine was also fitted to the Z1100R and the ZN1100 (US market custom style bike) I thought Z1100s had the same head as a Z1000J and that the bath tub head was only fitted to...

Re: Is this cool or naff ??

That's pretty much how mine run, except I have the hoses coming up between the carbs and the head. I just thought it would run a bit cooler taking the hoses behind the carbs rather than running them down the back of the engine? I agree, but the hoses I had were only long enough to run how I've run ...

Z1000J Rear Sets

Has anybody got a set of Z1000J rearsets going spare or just the back plates, as I'm trying to avoid the £200+ for a new set and if I make a set of back plates they'll be rubbish.

Re: Is this cool or naff ??

That's interesting, the hoses run right behind the engine block gathering all that heat. This is kinda what I'm trying to avoid ! Won't make a difference when the bike is on the move. A cooler fitted is better than no cooler at all. Best to run the hoses between the intake rubbers so that the oil h...

Re: Is this cool or naff ??

I'll try to remember to take a picture, no idea where the horns should be as my bike is far from standard, from memory I've got the wiring loom going through the right hand triangle of frame tubes and the cooler hoses through the left triangle, my cooler feeds are at the top of the cooler.

Re: Is this cool or naff ??

When I got my Z the oil cooler lines ran round the left side of the engine and were very close to the exhaust headers, I think it worked more like an exhaust heater than cooler. Using the same hoses mine now runs over the top with the hoses running between the coil mounting plates, the bike now runs...

Re: Is this cool or naff ??

They look a bit naff, I've run mine under the tank and out through the opposite side triangle to the wiring loom, but I have the bare minimum of wiring rather than the inch thick loom that Kawasaki thought was needed.
Why not get non flexible metal hoses made up like Kawasaki did for the GPZs?

Re: Float bowl pivot pins

Use a spring loaded centre punch to push them out, sometimes called an automatic centre punch.

Re: Abba Superbike Stand

I've got one, great for the Z, friggin useless for my FZ750 though due to the way the swingarm spindle fits in the frame and the height of the footrest plate bolts
