Re: Z 1000 St E2

Hi Dunlop 4 I'm afraid you'll have to replace the base gasket. I think something went wrong when replacing it, maybe it was torn or a piece of the old gasket is still sitting on the cylinderbase thus preventing the new gasket to seal. When you decide to replace it, you don't have to take the engine ...

Hi John some advice: press the "reply" button, scroll down and press "attachments" next to the "options" button, load the picture and enter the picture in your text and send it. It's easy as stealing candy from a baby :wink: I'm not a PC freak but even I can do it. GrtZ...

Hi Kev
if you want to obtain a MC repair set for the diafragm take a look at classickawaparts.nl .
In the "remmen" (brakes) section you can obtain it! Just in case...you never know.

Re: clocks

Hi John

what do you mean by an oil leak on the stator? Do you mean the alternator? The stator and the rotor run in oil, it comes from the engine and it's supposed to be like that. As long as the oil stays inside the engine it's OK.

Re: Thou A2 master cylinder paint.

Hi Kev mat-satin black is the best option . Try to find a very hard paint that can resist the brake fluid. I use Selemix , a 2 component black paint which has a 10% gloss (so rather dull) finish. I apply it with a spray gun. That paint is resistant to the brake fluid. I use it on every brake part (c...

Re: Z1B Restoration

Hi men the paintwork is done! The body parts recieved a final layer of clear coat yesterday. It turned out right and I couldn't resist the temptation to put them on the frame.

Re: Z1B Restoration

Hi Damien in a garage they have to think commercially, it's their way to make a living. I did a full restoration of a '73 Z1 once for a gargekeeper as I would have done it for myself and it left a bitter taste. I had to wait for my money and afterwards I heard nothing from him anymore... So I decide...

Re: Z1B Restoration
