Re: Cam caps bolts - stripped threads

Chris Tombleson fixed mine with threaded inserts, didn't charge much, I dropped the head off with him one Saturday, picked it up the next Saturday

Re: GPZ1100 Frame

There isn't a lower rear engine mount on a GPZ1100 engine (or any J engine), the front lower is an additional one to the older engines, front mountings are rubber, rear is solid

Re: GPZ1100 Frame

Why do you want to do it?

Re: Ignition Leads

Supposed to be held on by the cap would be more accurate, though new coils are probably better than the 35 year old ones I had.

Re: Ignition Leads

Yes, the cheap stuff isn't really flexible enough though, it'll work but won't turn tight enough to look nice.

Re: Ignition Leads

BTW Dyna leads look very similar to the ones I put on Ford Puma a few years ago that came from Motorspares and cost about £20 for the set.

Re: Ignition Leads

Thanks for that, but I've been told (by a certain specialist company who sell the coils and lead sets) that the Dyna leads will not work with standard coils. Is this just bull ? From an electrical point of view that is 1st class bullshit. But they may mean that the leads diameter is too fat to fit ...

Re: Ignition Leads

Dyna leads don't fit in standard coils, I can probably find a short length of Dyna lead and send it to you if you want to try it.

Re: GPZ11 Z1000J etc. liner/std barrels needed

I assumed it was for Bob, I think MTC do 76mm pistons for 18mm gudgeon pins, I don't know if 76mm will be solve Bob's problem, if it's a 17mm gudgeon pin engine then MTC and Wiseco may do 76mm pistons, but the Wiseco ones might not fit J type engines.

Re: Minimum liner thickness on GPz ?

Never heard of Cruzin Image pistons until now, but £51 for set of 3 piston kits for a Kawasaki S3 doesn't fill me with confidence The Scheuerlein sets aren't a great deal cheaper than Wiseco ones, £480 rather than £525 for a set of Unitrak piston kits, but again I hadn't heard of Scheuerlein until n...

Re: Minimum liner thickness on GPz ?

Are they cast or forged pistons, some of the cheaper ones are cast which are not as strong as forged.

Re: GPZ11 Z1000J etc. liner/std barrels needed

Doesn't it have to be an 1100 barrel to be bored to 75mm, I don't think you can go that big with 1000J barrels.

Re: Minimum liner thickness on GPz ?

I don't know about 550s but 1100s run 3mm oversize pistons with no problems (I hope)

Re: Yikes!

Are hydraulics a sealed system, is there a breather hole to let air into the resovoir so you don't get a vacuum as the pads wear and the fluid goes down?
