Re: Gsxr slabside 29mm carbs

They look like the standard GSXR VM29SS carbs, they're 29mm on one side of the slide and 33mm on the other, I can't remember which way round. They sit in the same rubbers as standard 34mm so I was thinking it was the engine side, but you are right, they narrow a lot at the slide and that's where th...

Re: Gsxr slabside 29mm carbs

BTW the JDM ones without pumps work fine, I had a 1985 JDM GSXR 750 that obviously came with JDM carbs, I changed them for a UK set, the different wasn't massive, the throttle response was a bit better, top speed was the same.

Re: Gsxr slabside 29mm carbs

Not fitted them to a Z, but be aware there are two different types on GSXR flatslides, JDM ones don't have accelerator pumps, rest of the world do, there are a lot of JDM sets knocking about as people want the ones with pumps. Slides wear on them and they get rattly. They can be bored out to 33mm, b...

Had an overlong set on my Z1000J, they worked fine but were too long with my swingarm.

Re: Pod filters

You may be able to trim the rubber lip where it blocks the air jets with a craft knife, I had to do this with Ram Airs

Re: Pod filters

S and Bs are available from Grumpy 1260 (and probably others) for about half the price of K and Ns and work just as well.

I had Ram Airs on my RS34s, you may need to cut out the lip inside to make them work properly, they're a bit bulky which is why I changed to S and Bs.

Re: Head Bolts

You might be able to helicoil them without taking the head off.
My Z1000J had longer bolts with nuts on them when I bought it, as the threads were fecked

Re: Caliper ID

1L9 is a 1977 XS360D according to this list

https://www.motorcyclespareparts.eu/en/ ... -1970-1994

As that wasn't imported to the UK I'd guess at either XS250 or RD250/400

Re: New arrival - super nice 1000J

Take the exhaust off it and sell the rest of the bike to me for a stupidly low price, I can get it painted green and really devalue it.

Re: F/S 1980 Z1000H

Personally I think it looks good for the money, it's yet another bike I'd buy if I had an industrial unit to keep them all in, sadly my single garage is full at 3 bikes and the ton of junk (mostly Yamaha fairing panels) I seem to have accumulated.

Re: Mikuni RS36 fuel overflow issue

My RS34s do this, I store the bike upright, the other option is to turn off the fuel before stopping the engine so that it drains the float bowls.

To confirm - a Zephyr 1100 head definitely won't fit.
