Re: Z1 colours

Hi Ady nice and beautiful colours but not the correct lines, unfortunately because it must have taken a lot of time, effort and money to get those results. I'm sorry if I took your dream away, I didn't mean to do that, I only want to give you an honest answer. The most obvious "shortcomings&quo...

Re: Z900 Clutch plates

Hi Paul
what's wrong with the ones you have? Or don't you have a set?
If you don't have a set, you can buy new plates . They're available.

Re: Got another XS650

Hi men
my first bike was a XS650 . A very nice bike, to start with.
I had it a few years and swapped it in 1983 for a Z1000ST
I stil have a XS650 today in my collection.

Re: Z900ltd Resto

Hi Bill
you're on the right track!
Mind the demons and the gremlins in the loom! They're after your common sense and they try to make you crazy and to loose your mind.
Good luck with the electrics.

Re: swinging arm for z1000a1/a2

Hi Bart on the outside they're the same, on the inside it's another story. The A1 swing arm has one needle bearing on each side, the A2 and A3 have two needles bearings on each side. To the best of my knowledge, you can't put two needle bearings on one side in an A1 swing arm. Somebody else might co...

Re: Z1000st Project

Hi Simonic
the pin that connects the propellershaft to the front bevel gear case measures: 6 mm long and has a diameter of 4 mm.
If it's this one, DON'T loose it, I'm not sure if you can stil buy it.

Re: Z1000st Project

Hi Simonic do you have the dimensions of the "little fellow"? If it comes out of the front bevel gear case it might be the little pin to hold the drive schaft on the front bevel gear case. It all depends upon the dimensions and in this case: size matters! If it's very small you have an ide...

Re: KZ1000 MkII (A3, 1979) aftermarket carb sizing advice

Hi James find a set of VM28SS mikuni carbs, from an ST or from a MK2, they're the same exept for the main jets. (ST has 110, MK2 has 105) They're identical and not really hard to give an initial synchronisation. Use the workshop manual and follow it step by step. If done correctly your engine will r...

Re: Z1000st Project

Hi Simonic that "little fellow" can come from a few different places: the pin that keeps the kickstarter shaft in place, one of the five pins of the cranckshaft, one of the pins that keeps the cages of the roller bearings of the input or the output shaft in place. These are all situated in...

Re: Z900a4 servicing Leicester/Northants

Hi Chris
good for you that you joined the club.
Maybe you could show us some pictures of the bike.
It'll be hard to find a servicing company that can work on your bike. Perhaps some club members can help you to find one.
Good luck with teh bike!

Re: New arrival - super nice 1000J

Hi Ultim8pc
removing the exhausts and replacing them by a 4 in 1 would be a major crime and should be punished by hanging on a tree until death follows! :mad
Please don't do it, keep the bike as she is, it's original, complete, very tidy and maybe one of the few original survivors.
