Re: What are you doing whilst in 'self-isolation'?

Hey guys I'm going at work everyday, see a lot of people on the streets and tell them to dispere and go home, checking if the pubs and restaurants are closed... not a nice job these days...

Re: Z900 cylinder head fins

Hi bigclive it's common to find broken off fins on a cylinderhead. They can be welded but it's advisable to remove the head from the engine, aluminium is a strange metal, the heat can appear somewhere else and warp the head. A professional welder can repair them without the broken off parts by weldi...

Yes, a Deep Purple frame and bodywork with golden pinstripes and gold plated parts would look absolutely great! So seventies!

Re: Tyres and tubes.

Hi Ian if the wheel is not marked "tubeless" you will find an inner tube inside. To my knowledge the '79 Z1000ST was the first Kawasaki bike with tubeless tires, the others needed an inner tube. Perhaps there were others, I don't know. It's not a good idea to fit tubeless tires on a tube t...

Re: Clutch holding tool anyone? And other things

Hi guys
you can put the cranckshaft back in the crackcase with the rotor and starter gear on. Don't worry, it's a piece of cake.

Re: Needle jets

I use an old needle and put that in the carb slide, I push the carb slide down so that the needle goes very deep in the carb body. Turn the carb body upside down (hold...

Re: Morning from Cheshire...

Hi Biggles welcome to the club! Nice Z1B you have there with special paint on it, keep that body set, they become rarer every year. If you want to take your bike back to standard looks, buy a new replica body set and a good replica 4 in 4 exhaust. Good luck with the project! Greetings from Belgium P...
