That's the same as the one I've got.
Might be interested in a swop if the two spring version fits my bike?

Re: Gpz1100b1 side stand

I've been after the original two spring UK type of stand for a while now to replace the US single spring type that's currently fitted to my J.
Interested to hear that you say the "other type" doesn't fit ?
I presume you mean the two spring type that was fitted as standard to UK bikes ?

Re: Z1000R Paintwork

Looks like a J tank (or less likely from a 1000R).
Like you say, the fuel injection models have the extra breather connection, plus the fuel outlet is on the right. Not sure about the added welds, but looks nastily like the dreaded sealer inside !

Would GPz900R callipers fit on a 1000J too ?

Re: Z1000 MK2

Hi Ultim8pc now that's a good excuse to buy another bike: "Honey, I found an exhaust and I bought it...but it's stil mounted on a bike so I had to take that one allso...'. :blush I would suggest you keep the J as she is,( she looks lovely :luv ) and find another exhaust for your MK2! GrtZ Phil...

Re: Z1000 MK2

That looks like a nice clean original example of a J to be using for spares ?
The J motor does have sump mounts which I thought the original system bolted to ?

Re: Z1000R Paintwork

Sounds like the second tank may be from a gpz1100b model, if the holes are on the right?
It should fit the frame ok, but you will have to plug some of the threaded holes.

Re: strobe timing light

I use a cheap analogue AccuSpark.
Works fine as long as you follow the instructions, and use a separate electrical source (spare battery?).

Re: Z1a BHP

I'm sure there must be plenty of dyno charts out there that folk can pitch in with. I recall (back in the day) seeing in an American mag a dyno chart of a freshly run-in J which gave 79bhp at the wheel (Kawasaki claimed 102). They were speculating at the time whether this was reasonable transmission...

Re: Gpz1100b1 seat lock

My bad (memory !)
Yes, the right side helmet lock does need a key, and bolts on just behind the shock mount.

Re: Gpz1100b1 seat lock

From memory, the only seat lock where you put the key in is on the left. This allows removal of the seat, but also operates both helmet locks (one each side). I'll have to check when I get home this evening.

Re: Valve shim sizes on the limit! What next?

Thanks guys, all really good info :up
Having just changed the shims, hopefully I've got a few miles yet before any remedial action's needed.
I don't have access to a lathe, so would need a shop to do it.
