Re: ST recommission

Hi Pete
bad surprise...but you can find other tail pieces for the ST, they're not rare.
The forks need approx. 350 cc of oil in each leg. I use 15 w.

Re: Z1000ST ('79-E1) Restoration

Hi men the next episode: DSCN3884.JPG I start the rebuild by putting the shells of the tapered bearings in the headstock. I use a tube which has the correct diameter and a hammer. Before installing them I clean out the headstock tube and I put some grease in. When they’re seated correctly you can he...

Re: Fuel Tap

Hi Mick
the third pipe should be connected to the number 3 carb to create a vacuum in order to allow the diafragm in the tap to open.
If you put the lever of the tap on "pri" the fuel will run to the carbs without the engine running.
Good luck

Re: New on here

Hi Safo welcome to the club! Good that you have a runner with no nasty noises. Use semi-synthetic oil 10W40, not for the clutch but for the oil seals. If you're able to remove the oil pan, do it, clean it ou,t use a new gasket, o-rings and oil filter. If there are bits and pieces of plastic in the o...

Hi Pete
If you want brand new brake lines that look like the original ones you can send a message to Willem from classickawaparts in Holland and ask him to have them made. He understands English, so no problem.

Re: ST recommission

Hi Pete I had another look at the fork leg. The E2 fork inner tubes had a bushing at the underside. I only opened one and that's years ago. My mistake, sorry. If you want to remove the inner damper out of the inner tube you have to take the aluminium part at the end off. The inner damper can be remo...

Re: ST recommission

Hi Pete the slide rod bushes on the bolt do the same thing as the O-rings, they prevent dust and water getting between the bolt and the holes in the caliper bracket. They are mounted on the bolt in an indentation. Kawasaki didn't supply them as separate parts, they came with the bolts. The steel spa...

Re: Front wheel rim

Hi Ady I'm sorry to hear that. Are the holes through the rim or are they only in the chrome? If they're in the chrome, take it back to the chromers and ask for a rechrome. If the holes are through the metal of the rim, then the rim stayed probably too long in the tank where the old chrome was remove...

Re: ST recommission

Pete
there's no washer between the oil seal and the retaining clip. Not on the ST, on other forks there are washers.

Re: ST recommission

Hi Pete I've done already a lot of ST fork disassembly but I never stumbled upon that. But then again, you're in France and your ST originates from France...nice country, nice people but when it comes to finding solutions for a technical problem...I have my doubts about it. Is the other fork leg the...

Hi Pete as promised, the pictures DSCN3923.JPG As you can see there's no bronze sleeve.

Re: ST recommission

Hi Pete
the ST fork legs have no bronze sleeve, they come apart very easy.
I'll show you some pictures of the parts within a few hours so you can see what to expect.
