Re: 1977 Z1000A1 Switchgear

Hi r3sc as you mentioned in your post: a different handlebar was fitted...it happened a lot of times in the past so the original undamaged switchgear halves are difficult to find. As Warren mentioned, you could try to find those of a Z650, you never know if you're lucky until you tried it. GrtZ Phil...

Re: Z1000A1 OEM Exhaust hanger brackets.

Hi Nigel as promised, pictures and measurements from the exhaust hangers. The dimensions are in millimeters and are "more or less" correct... The thickness of the steel plate is 2.25 mm Both of the hangers have on the upper inside a rectangular cage where an M10 self locking nut with fine ...

Re: ST recommission

Hi Pete I never lubricated the universal joint of the shaft. I only put copper grease on the splines as described in the shop manual. About your front fork: did you mount it in the correct way? Don't forget that you don't tighten the bolts of the lower yoke before you've tightened the one on the upp...

Hi MrPinlock
don't break up such a nice bike, sell her completely, I'm sure someone will pay a fair price for it!

Re: ST recommission

Hi Pete glad to hear that your ST rides good! The best way to remove the old paint from the wheels is to strip them completely (tire, air valve and bearings) and "wash off" the old paint with cellulose thinner. Do it outside or you'll get dizzy from the fumes! Give the cellulose thinner th...

Re: Panels and Tank Interchangeability

Hi Mark as Chris allready mentioned: the tank and tail piece will fit. The side panels of a Z1,Z1A and Z1B will not fit to a Z900A4 or a Z1000. You need to change the place of the holes in the frame in order to attach them. You allso have a problem with the shape of the air filter box. The air filte...

Re: Z1000ST restore

Hi myklexfox the front bevel gear case is attached with 11 M6 bolts to the cranckcase. Make sure they're all out before attempting to remove the front bevel gear case. Mind the lenght of those bolts and put them at the correct place when putting the front bevel gear case back! Check the workshop man...

Re: Naughty UK A1

Hi King of Kings
very beautifull A1. Those are not that common anymore !
But I don't see what an A1 has in common with a blood disease and a man performing a venipuncture? :shock:
Or am I missing some clue in order to understand it? Remember my native language is Flemish... :D

Re: New GPZ1100B1 project arrived today

Hi JimBoUK great project you have there! Very sad about the dent in the N°4 downpipe... The exhaust of a B1 wasn't black chromed, it was painted black and it had no badges. The brackets were bolted on like on the B2. The GPZ1100 Uni-Trac had the brackets welded on the silencers. It's a shame that th...

Re: Z1000 A2 - Clutch centre nut

Hi Graham
an air-socket wrench is the tool to use! The nut will come off without a problem if the air pressure is high enough.
It's only necessary to take the nut off if you want to change the needle bearing. You don't need to loosen the clutch nut if you want to split the cases!

Re: Z1000ST restore

Hi miklexfox as far as the front and final bevel gear cases are concerned: if they turn without noise (grinding, squeeking,...) or if the gears aren't damaged don't open them, I never did until now. The gears run in oil (they should normally) and if the final bevel gearcase doesn't leak oil it's OK....

Re: Z1000ST restore

Hi myklexfox so you started the restoration of your ST, great news! If I can give you some advice: take the engine out , split the cranckcase, have it welded at the rear and change the camchain for a new one. Change all the camshaft parts for new ones, get the barrels rebored if they're out of specs...
