Re: Z1000st Project

Hi Smonic
it worked! Great that you could get them out.
I see you're getting to the frame now. The bolts for the main stand are the same as those for other Zeds but the main stand itself is different, its a bit higher so do use an ST main stand or the rear tire will hit the ground.

Re: Gpz1100B2 restoration

Hi men thanks a lot for your replies! @ rickm: I think that it has pistons of a ZX10A, they are marked "ART 114" but I have no experience with the "younger" bikes so any input is welcome, they have the standard size: 72,5 mm. But they look like high compression pistons... @ uli: ...

Re: Gpz1100B2 restoration

Hi men here's an update of the "progress" of the restoration. I promised you some pictures of the horrors I discovered while dismantling the bike (after all, Haloween isn't that long ago). The major horror I discovered was a lump of resin at the front of the engine, just where the two cran...

Re: Z1000st Project

Hi Simonic part n° 5 is the pivot shaft. It should come out easy...if there's no rust between the shaft and the frame. The outer end has a thread, the inner end sits in the swing arm bearing. If it's stuck, use some penetrating oil and leave it for a while...if it remains stuck take an allen key and...

Hi Dave you own a very beautifull, very well preserved and allmost completely original bike , a true survivor! Congratulations!
