Re: 1979 Mk2 restoration (Operation Boomerang)

Very impressed with how those cams turned out :up
Initially I'd have taken them for scrap !

Re: Clutch adjuster J type three bearing.

Looks like a good piece of kit... although not sure of some of the translation in the instructions !

"Note!: When fixing a locknut, please fix a locknut while fixing as a(2) adjuster never visits attendants by a minus driver."

Re: Measure bore diameter without strip-down - is it possible?

Thanks for that. I'm only asking because when I bought the bike (directly from Kipkawa) they said that they re-built the engine to standard capacity with standard pistons (NOS ?). However, a standard battery really struggles to turn it over and I've had to invest in a lithium iron one with much bigg...

Measure bore diameter without strip-down - is it possible?

Hi,

Is there a reliable and accurate way to measure cylinder bore diameter without stripping the motor?
I presume you'd have to somehow stick some clever measuring device through a spark plug hole?

Thanks
Rick

Re: Clutch adjuster J type three bearing.

Are the engine casings different to accommodate the different adjuster mechs?

Re: Clutch adjuster J type three bearing.

Don't suppose anyone has a photo of the other version with the helical spiral?
(EDIT: just seen the diagram of the other mech on the previous link)

Are the two mechs fully interchangeable?

Re: Clutch adjuster J type three bearing.

So you effectively refurbed and upgraded the standard mech. Mine currently has a lot of the wear / slack in the various components, so might attempt something similar :up The thread on the adjuster nut that goes through the casing is partially stripped too, but I can't seem to find a replacement par...

Re: Clutch adjuster J type three bearing.

Apols if I've missed something from an earlier thread, but are those parts standard or something you've fabricated?
I've had a bit of an issue with my clutch adjuster mech recently.

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'm sure a lot of folk would have come back saying they "found x or y (not diesel) after stripping the carbs, and now I've sorted it" ! :blush

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 ...
