Re: Fuel injectors.

Not cheap are they ! (I presume that price is for 1, not a set of 4)
I've often thought it might be nice to have a go at restoring a fuel-injected bike, but now I'm not so sure.

Re: Gpz1100B2 restoration

Great thread Philippe :up Looking forward to the fuel injection set up. Just curious, what pistons was it running?

Re: H2B Air Intake System

Good spot, although I’ve got nothing upstream of the carbs at the moment so need the whole system if I go this route.

H2B Air Intake System

Hi, I know this is a long shot but before I sink cash into a new replica one from the States, has anyone got or know anyone who has an air intake system (or part of) for a 1974 H2B ? The whole thing comprises https://z1parts.net/kawasaki-h2-750-com ... rrencyId=3 but would consider parts if availabl...

Re: chain guard

If Roy doesn't want it then I might be interested if it would fit a 1000J.

Re: Camshafts

Just curious, but it would take a big impact to bend a camshaft.
Presume it hasn't happened (if it has) when on the bike or else there'd be severe damage elsewhere?

Very good engineering work, but I think the chain guard is a tad too long !
