Re: New member with "Z1 project"

Hi Craig welcome to the club! You have a great project there! If the frame number is in the 18000 you have a rather late Z1 (july '73) . If you're looking for the correct rims you need Takasago 303 rims with the date code 3F or 3G (june or july 73). As far as the starting of the engine is concerned:...

Hi Ady
seems to me you've sorted your rear wheel spacer problem.
Nice job!

Re: Rear wheel spacers

Hi Ady when the Z1B recieved an O-ring chain, there was extra material added on the chain adjuster around the axle hole. If you have a Z1 or a Z1A, which wasn't originally equipped with an O-ring chain, the chain adjusters were not as thick, there was no extra metal ring on the side which pointed to...

Re: Rear wheel spacers

Hi Ady are you talking about a drum brake or a disc brake equipped rear wheel? I suppose it's a drum brake equipped rear wheel... Did you put the chain adjusters in the correct way on the spindle? Is the spacer of the rear sprocket carrier the correct way in ? Do you have all the correct parts ? Tak...

Re: Z1 Front hub speed drive unit parts

Hi guys
the "chrome" cover is not chrome, it's stainless steel. The one of a Z1 has 3 holes for screws to attach it.
I think that the one Paul has(2 holes)comes from a KZ with only one disc.

Re: Z1000 st

Hi Tony you're welcome! It's not that difficult to repair a main loom, just make sure that new connecting blocks are the same as those of the electrical parts. If they're not the same you'll have to change the connecting blocks of the electrical parts too. Make sure that the lenght of the electrical...

Re: Z1000 Rear Caliper

Hi Sean to my knowledge all the Z1000 rear brake calpers were the same. Those of the Z1000A1, A2, A3,A4, Z1R are usable to you. The only thing that's different are the calper pistons. The pistons had an insert when Kawasaki started using sintered brake pads. Maybe that widens your search. GrtZ Phili...

Re: Strange crank case number

Hi men the engine numbers are stamped in a raised portion of the upper cranckcase. The lenght of that raised portion was 65 mm original and had no raised lip around it. Sometime during production of the Z1A the lenght of the raised portion went up to 80 mm and then it had a raised lip. In the beginn...

Re: Z1000 st

Hi Mathh
yes you do have to alter some things, take a look at the topic "differences between Z1000ST and MK2".
The electrical parts are the same but the place where those parts are situated on the bike are completely different!
Cheers

Hi Tony as far as I know Z-power doesn't have a Z1000ST replacement wiring loom... Repair the one you have. I've bought replacement wiring looms for other models in the past and they're good. If you want to put pictures on the forum just look under the "reply" window. You see "options...

Re: Re Z1000a1 needles in an Z1000 A2

Hi Snowy
are you talking about the needle bearings of the swing arm?
They're the same , the only difference is that the A1 swing arm has only place for one on each side and the A2 swing arm has two on each side.
