great bike, congratulations!
As Chris said, put a decent seat and a second front brake on it and ride it as it is.
Looks great!

Re: Z1000 MK2 Inner Sprocket cover

Hi Rob
I looked it up in the parts manual, they have the same parts number(14025-1106) so you might expect that a Z1000A1/A2 inner sprocket cover will fit on a Z1000A3 or A4 engine. Take a look for yourself at CMS.nl .
Good luck with the search.

Re: Aoshima 900 model kit, colour.?

Hi Cas your colleague does great work, nice models, beautifully build and weathered! We all started with airfix models! glueing them together in 30 minutes or so :eek If we would have kept those models unopened in the plastic bags, blisters or boxes we would own a fortune now. We didn't, we learned ...

Re: Z 1000 St E2

Hi Dunlop4
don't panic, give her several hundred miles before you mesure the compression again, keep an eye on the oil consumption and don't rev her over 4000 RpM. After 500 miles do another compression test.

Re: Z1000 exhaust

Hi martfxr welcome to the forum! Great to hear that you and your wife had good memories on your old Z1000A2. I often wonder why we all sold our bikes, on which we had such good memories, in the past. Maybe because we were young and wanted something better, faster... Now we're older and we remember t...

Re: Gpz1100b1 or same fuel tank ..

Hi Chris is it really so far gone that you can't clean and repair it? :eek Take a look at the website from a Belgian company: https://www.matthys.net/ They distribute the products of a French brand "Restom". I've saved some old fuel tanks when I used the tank repair kit from that brand. If...

Hi men

don't want to make you envy me but this is what I collected at the chromer yesterday.

two rear mudguards without holes


These are not unobtainable as you can see, but it takes a long search!
I guess I'm a lucky bastard :D

Re: Z1B Restoration

Hello men a few days ago I decided to take care of the ignition switch and of the seat lock. I have an original ignition switch with a key that has number 753 on it... DSCN3549.JPG ... and an original seat lock with number 751. DSCN3550.JPG I don't have a number 751 key. So I decided to change the s...

Re: When you like the shape & hate the motor

The problem nowadays is that there is too much electronics and not enough reliability in vehicles!
Look at our old Zeds, give them fuel and a spark and the engine runs.

Re: French Z1- a lesson from the past

Hi RAYZ1 as promised, some pictures of the dirty, dusty '72 Z1 head with the original colour on. I think that the paint is black, I rubbed the dirt and grease off at one spot. DSCN3557.JPG As you can see the intakes for the vacuum meters are in the head itself, it's not the first model Kawasaki used...

Re: rear mudgaurd

Hi guys as far as I know, the long rear Z1/Z1A mudguard had no holes at the bottom. At least not in Belgium. I have no idea what the regulations were in other countries. The two holes were there for bolting a piece of metal with a reflector on it. I think the first time there was a reflector added w...
