Re: Anyone help?

I also have a set of CR33 perfectly set up for a 1170cc engine that are spare and on the shelf. As per Al's comment I wont trust them to post though. I am mid-way between Swindon and Oxford if Al's option is no good. I'd need them back most likely just after Christmas. Many thanks Martin. My friend...

Anyone help?

I have a friends Z1000R ELR on the bench. Was pretty sure that the carbs were dug 'n' ducked so he bought a set of CR29s and I fitted them and took it to a dyno shop to set it up. They were eleventy billion miles out and no amount of messing about got a decent curve. Air/fuel was all over the place....

ELR Rings

I have club members Z1000R2 (ELR) in the workshop currently.

I have to pull the top end off and thought that fitting new rings might be an idea. I was looking at a set of IMD rings. Are they the same as Z1000J series ?

Re: Lithium Battery?

The charging system on classic bikes is incompatible with lithium ion batteries.

Re: 2018 10TH GREAT YORKSHIRE RALLY

Another fabulous rally! Thanks so much to Phil & Sandie for all their hard work in organising another triumphant rally. Shame the soft northern pussies wouldn’t join Hobbo on a rideout! We tough Southerners were raring to go :lol:

Re: Z650 Hydraulic Clutch?

I have bought another final drive case to attack! I have also ordered a 900R master cylinder and slave. I doubt the slave will be suitable but it will give me a piston diameter to work from and a piston in the unlikely event it's not fucked! Watch this space :lol:

Re: Z650 Hydraulic Clutch?

Many thanks for that. I'm a member of the triples forum so I have posted the question.

Given her astonishing ability to break clutch cables on whatever bike she rides, I like the idea of a hydraulic clutch, the the triple version sounds a lot easier and hopefully cheaper :lol:

Z650 Hydraulic Clutch?

Does anyone know if there has ever been a hydraulic clutch kit made for the Z650? CB is struggling with hers now and I am considering making a hydraulic clutch actuator for her, but it would be great if there was a tried and tested system out there to make my life easier; either yo copy or better st...

Re: ELR CR29 setup?

Thanks for your reply Chris. The bike is at the dyno currently and the guy there says it's absolutely miles out. I balanced the carbs up when I fitted them with my electronic vacuum gauges and didn't have any issues; easier than Mikuni flat slides to be honest. I don't like bell mouths for road bike...

ELR CR29 setup?

I have a friend who I got a set of CR29s for his '93 Z1000R2. It's running like a bag of shite with the baseline setup - really lean on the needles and mega rich on the mains. I don't know what needles were fitted, but the mains are 128s which would explain the richness on the large throttle opening...
