Re: Z1R Seat lock cover

Hi Rob
do you mean the complete air filter box or only the silencer?
If it's the silencer, it looks the same as the one from a Z1000A1 or A2 or A3 ...
Pretty easy to find pictures on the web, just go for it.

Re: Z1R Seat lock cover

Hi rpeters
you have to insert the spring and close the two forks by bending them carefully! It's a one way ticket so do it correct the first time!
If you want to open the fork again one of the legs will probably break off...
Good luck

Re: Front wheel rim

Hi Ady
I can only advise you to compare it with the asking price of other rims.
I can't put a number on it, sorry.
Good luck !

Re: Front wheel rim

Hi Ady
when you put it on Ebay, don't forget to mention it's a 305 front rim, for a Z1000A1 or A2 (more likely because of the date code : september 1977)
It's not a Z1 front rim, that should have a 303 rim code!

Re: zh efi

Hi rynner I can only advise you to disassemble the engine completely. It's not that difficult. When the camchain is making noise, just change everything (chain, guides, gears, rubbers,tensioner,...). I know it costs a lot of money but you'll be rewarded with a smooth running engine. Take in account ...

Re: 28mm z1r carb

Hi DDZ900 as mentioned above: Z1000ST carbs are a good substitute. The slides of your Z1R carbs fit into the ST carb bodies. If you should use the third ST carb body, don't forget to block the intake of the vacuum hose for the vacuum fuel tap. I use ST carbs on my Z1R and they perform very good! Goo...

Re: VM carb tops

Hi gpjes
do they need to have 2 or 3 screw holes?
For what model of carbs? The early ones( VM28SC) or the later ones (VM26SS, VM28SS) ?

Re: early hub

Hi needaz1100r
all the Z1, Z1A and Z1B front wheel hubs had a 6 bolt disc. The 6 bolt hubs are larger in diameter than the 4 bolt hubs.
To my knowledge there were no 4 bolt hubs in those days (73 -74 - 75) for the Z1A.
Perhaps it wasn't the original hub in that Z1A .
