Re: GPZ 1100 UNITRACK Head Gasket Leak

I'd replace the standard auto cam chain adjuster with a manual one, it's a bit more servicing but I doubt if you're using it for transport. The spring in the auto will probably have got a bit weak by now and also a manual one allows you to slacken the tension on the cam chain off enough to fit the c...

Re: z1100R camshaft cap

They are machined as part of the head and not available from Kawasaki as a separate part.
I have replaced one on a Suzuki GSXR750K with no problems

As above, personally I'd have no problem buying an old bike that smokes a little on start up, it certainly wouldn't bother me enough to take the head off and do something about it.

Re: Mikuni Carbs - going bigger

If you want flat slides Mikuni RS34 aren't any bigger but flow more gas and keep the mid range reasonable, RS36 if you want top end power

Re: Testing the tacho drive on a set of Gpz1100B2 clocks
