Re: For Sale: Kawasaki mag wheels

Even if the wheels aren't that popular, I'd have thought the discs, cush-drive, sprocket, etc. must be worth something if sold separately?

Whereabouts in Staffs are you?

I admire your honesty.

I've recently looked into these, so I'd be keen to hear how this goes.
What did you order and from where?


Chris - any update on the lithium battery ?

1000J chain guard

Can anyone point me in the direction of a custom chain guard that will fit a 1981 1000J ? I've got a standard one that's a bit of a mess but probably repairable, but just fancy a custom one. I've seen some for a Rex (Beowolf) but don't know whether the spacing for the bolts is likely to be the same ...

Re: Gpz1100b1 crankcase takeoffs

Sorry no, I don't have any detailed dimensions or drawings, and now it's all bolted on the bike. I suspect HEL might freeze over :lol: if I did have these and just gave 'em away ! The standard pressure sensor screws into the top, so that's the same dimensions if you've got one to hand. The securing ...

Re: Gpz1100b1 crankcase takeoffs

I'm not certain, but I suspect the take-off might be specific to the air cooled GPz1100 and the ELR Z1000R/J motors. You may find one on here (or FleaBay) but they're not common any more. If you really get stuck, then I know that HEL Performance are capable of making one. I bought a prototype kit fr...

Re: Gpz1100b1 or same fuel tank ..

As far as I can tell, the tank is pretty solid, although I've not tested it.

Re: Gpz1100b1 or same fuel tank ..

Hi,
I’ve got one that should be ok.
I’m away for a week but can send pics when I get back if interested?
Currently it’s ELR green.

Re: GPZ1000RX Motor

Loved my old 1000RX :up
They don't handle as badly as their reputation suggests, although I did need a new rear shock (old one seemed to seize) and once I'd bypassed the anti-dive the forks worked much better too.
Great bike though.

Re: 1973 Zia gasket set and pistons set

Going back to my post above, maybe someone with more experience could come in? Would you expect each cylinder to be showing exactly the same reading (i.e. 70psi across all four) if it were the result of parts wearing or failing? Wouldn't you expect some variation between them, whether it was down to...

Re: 1973 Zia gasket set and pistons set

Low but equal !
Would you expect to get such even wear across all 4 cylinders and/or valve stem seals at exactly the same time?

Re: z1100r pistons

Interesting that the Unitrac pistons have longer skirts and presumably must be heavier than the GPz1100b pistons?
Is that maybe partly why they need a bigger pin?

Re: GPZ1100 b2 buckets -will they be OK in a Z900 ???

I may have read this wrongly, but isn't the OP referring to GPZ1100 b buckets which run the 29mm shims on top the same as the 1000J ?
Will these work in a much earlier model ?

Re: 1100R 75mm PISTON

Eastwood racing can supply individual pistons if they are wisecos. However check the valve cutouts on the replacements. The recent sets of Wiseco piston valve cutouts are to high on the exhaust side. Wiseco know about the issue but have not withdrawn the faulty batch. Not defending Wiseco, as any f...
