Re: Z1A Restoration

Hi MrDavo I own you an apologize . I gave you the wrong measurements... I was confused about the parts but I checked them out now. Change the dimensions I gave you in my previous post!

Re: Z1A Restoration

Hi MrDavo
the lenght of the spacer of a Z1/A/B is 30,5 mm, the lenght of a spacer of a Z900A4, Z1000A1,2,3 is 27mm.
It's obviuos you have a spacer of the younger bikes which is about 3,5 mm too short.

Re: Tachometer

Hi King of Kings

Re: Speedo drive / axle interchangeable?

Hi MrDavo the parts are not interchangeable. They're all different, even the lenght of the spacer on the right hand side is different. Make sure that you use the correct parts or the front wheel won't fit properly between the fork legs. The brake rotor will squeeze against the caliper and the wheel ...

Re: Z1A Restoration

Hi MrDavo you're doing a real nice job! Congratulations. I must say that the main loom goes on the left hand side of the headstock, not on the right. The switchlooms however run both on the right hand side of the headstock. The wires of the points run from the points, under the engine ( there are tw...

Re: Z 1000 St E2

Hi
very, very well done!
You took the right decision to take the engine apart!
Try to find an ST front mudgard. It'll add up to the originality!

Re: Front Brake Light Switch

Hi Andrew
nice project! Keep the pictures coming please.
The front brake light switch doesn't need a sealant. Use a 26 mm wrench and torque it between 2.6 and 3 Kg/m.
Good luck with the restoration!

Re: Searching for a chrome Chainguard for Z1B

Hi John a chrome chaingard was used on the Z900 Ltd and Z1000 Ltd, the "soft chopper" or custom bikes. It was completely different in shape. To my knowledge there was no chrome chaingard available from Kawasaki that had the same shape as the black plastic ones. Maybe there was a manufactur...

Re: Z1-B engine mounting bolts

Hi Steve

the M8 bolts need 2,5 Kg/m of torque, the M10 and M12 bolts need 4 Kg/m of torque. Don't tighten the two short M12 bolts to 7Kg/m of torque. It must be a mistake in the book
