Re: barrel wont fit

Hi Dave a Z1000 head will mount without any problem on the Z900 barrels. The diameter of the combustion chamber is the same. You can use the gasket of the Z900 without any problems as long as the pistons are not to much oversized. If those are, use a gasket of the Z1000. Good luck with it. GrtZ Phil...

Re: Switch Gear Left Side Z1 900

Hi Kev I took some pictures of the original switch gear I have. As you can see your broken part has completely different wiring compared to the part I have. Mine is from a European bike with the Pa (flasher) . DSCN3986.JPG DSCN3987.JPG The last picture is from a replica left hand switch and shows th...

Re: Switch Gear Left Side Z1 900

Hi Kev
as far as I can see you have the left hand switch housing but the right hand wires and switch internals.
The broken part seems to be the killswitch... or am I that wrong?
Anybody knows better?

Re: Switch Gear Left Side Z1 900

Hi Kev
8 Valve Mark is right! Send a picture of the switch to determine what model you have. There are a few different types of switches, depending on the year of production. As Mark stated: more info will help.

Re: Z650F3 running poorly despite lots of attention!

Hi Mark I think your bike is running too lean. An obstruction in one of the fine passage ways in the carbs might be the problem. When you cleaned them, did you use compressed air to clean all the passages in the carbs? Is there enough fuel coming from the tank to the carbs? Did you clean the fuel ta...

Re: Z1 Carb Setup:- Guru needed

Hi Mike the synchronisation of the Z1 carbs can be a pain in the a**, I know. You have to do a static synchronisation first before mounting them on the bike. If that step is done correctly the engine should run steady and the fine synchronisation afterwards is a piece of cake. When doing a static sy...
