Re: Mystery object

Looks like a heavy duty "speed nut" - the sort of thing that clips onto the top of the inner wing on a 60's / 70's car and is used to bolt the outer wing to the inner wing.

Re: Is this a Z900 or Z1000 Airbox?

Rog, I think the item in the link you posted is the silencer that connects onto the Z1000 airbox

Re: Is this a Z900 or Z1000 Airbox?

Thank you all.

The air filter fitted in my photos is for a Z1000 and it fits like a glove. I didnt realise that the Z900 uses a longer filter (the taller filter stack is shown in the other photos kindly posted) so it looks like I have a Z1000 airbox.

Cheers,

Rob

Is this a Z900 or Z1000 Airbox?

Just wondering if anyone can help me by identifying what I have here? I need an airbox for my Z1000A1 but am not sure if this is the Z900A4 one? Bike is in bits so not able to try it for size. Thanks.

Clutch Adjuster Cover

Wanted: standard clutch adjuster cover in nice condition. My Z1000A1 came with the one in the photo below which I think must be a period aftermarket one. It is nice but my rebuld has ended up going all original. If anyone has a standard one they want to sell please let me know, alternatively I'm hap...

Re: Stainless Steel Bolts - Ok or Not?

Why would it be a problem to use stainless on the camshaft bearing caps?

Gaskets & Sealants

Sorry if this has been covered before; this weekend I'm planning on refitting my pistons, barrels and head to my rebuilt Z1000a1 bottom end and I'd be really grateful for a few last pointers: I'm planning on using a genuine base gasket, genuine cam tunnel shaped O ring and Vesrah head gaskets. Grate...

Re: Z 1000ST Bleed valve

I bought some stainless bleed nipples from an Ebay seller (not Powerhouse) and found that the taper seat was completely the wrong angle compared to the originals and would never have seated. From memory the originals had a 45 degree taper seat and the replacements were 60 or 70 degrees. Worth checki...

Re: Diamond Brown - Rattle Can ?

Just take a panel to a good auto paint shop and let them paint match it for you and make up either a pot of touch up or make up an aerosol. Its not expensive and decent independent auto paint specialists can mix up a match which takes account of the way that your original paint has faded over time. ...

Re: Smethurst Engine Clean

I have no idea what he means by symptoms occurring when the guides are pushed in. I am 99.9% sure that they are ceramic beads from the cleaning. After a bit of experimentation with Dremel bits I've found the best tool for the job, which does (eventually) work; I will PM you details.

Re: Smethurst Engine Clean

Thanks for all the replies. I've used an extremely fine engraving bit in a Dremel down the gap between the head and the guide and removed a tiny amount of material but also seem to have succeeded in shifting the ceramic balls. I'm going to do the same with the other three inlet valves and as suggest...
