Re: Z1B Restoration

Hello men an update of the work I've been doing the last weeks The carbs are assembled,I gave them an initial synchronisation and this is how they look now. You can see the copper T-pieces between carbs 1 and 2 and between 3 and 4. They have fuel resistant O-rings and when those would start to leak,...

Re: Z 1000 St E2

Hi Dunlop4 if the new oil seal starts to leak again I think there's something wrong. Or the oil seal is not correctly placed or there's pitting on the fork tube. Even a little bit of pitting on the fork tube can cause damage to the lip of the oil seal resulting in oil leaks. Take a close look. I hop...

Re: Valve seal

Hi Wrigers if an oil seal has given up after 300 miles I would contact the man who did the engine overhaul. Or it was a bad quality oil seal or it was placed wrong. SH*T happens, sadly enough. If you remove the head to replace the oil seal I would suggest you replace all of them, don't take any risk...

Re: Z1R colour

Hi Garry that information comes from the book Z1000 Z1-R written by Tony Sculpher. I didn't invent it!(it's written on page 127) The colour charts are very interesting but you have to find that brand of paint to get the correct code for the paint you need. Have you ever witnessed the proces of makin...

Re: Z1R colour

Hi alfacity the official colour name is "metallic stardust silver". Kawasaki doesn't give the formula to mix the paint :down but there's a substitute colour. It's named "Havasu Blue" and it's found on the 2004 model "Hodna" Acura MDX cars. Perhaps your local paint suppl...

Re: Mk2 exhausts

Hi z shed

Z1000H exhaust might be the same but Z1000ST exhausts are certainly not the same!
The Z1000J exhausts looks the same but have other stamping on them.
Good luck with the search.

Re: Z1B Restoration

Hello men the past two weeks were a little hectic but I managed to do some work on the Z1B, a lot of parts are sprayed mat black and are ready to be mounted on the bike...but that's for later. In the mean time I've been rebuilding the carbs. They were in a very deplorable state and needed a full res...

Re: Z 1000 St E2

Hi Avon that's a correct ST seat, a good seat pan, not rotten, the rubbers at the correct place. Don't worry about the fit around the tail piece, it's a normal fit. You can always try to bend the seat pan a bit at the rear so it might get closer to the tail piece if you really want that. I wouldn't ...

Z1 Z1A Z1B Key Holder rubber

Hi men a member from the German forum makes key holder rubbers, those little things to put in the "black hole" above the ignition switch of a Z1 , Z1A, Z1B . Some time ago members asked for that part. That part is available now, you can buy it for 35 Euro a piece + P&P 5,70 Euro to the...
